We didn't take lots of pictures this Christmas, and several of the ones we took must have been on a crazy setting. The boys look like ghosts of themselves. Should remember to use that setting this Halloween.
But I'm able to share some of them.
Baby Plum's still sucking his thumb... a lot. We put a surgical glove on his little hand and taped it with athletic tape. This one actually held for hours. He bit a hole in the thumb, but it still held. We'll need to do it again I guess. He was told not to suck his thumb yesterday, so he sucked his big toe for a bit. I'm pretty sure he was trying to be funny.
Little Elvis showing off a book he got from my aunt. He got the 3 disc Back to the Future trilogy from her, because I was convinced he'd love it. He liked the car in the first one (which I figured he would. Kind of forgot about the terrorists killing Doc Brown and the cussing and some other stuff.) He had issues following the second one. We didn't finish it. Oh well.
She got Baby Plum a fancy toy cell phone that they all like.
They loved their presents from my parents -- a bike for Little Elvis, flamingoes for the lawn for Baby Plum and rock star Elmo and computer for Cheese Puff. I found the rock star Elmo at the last baby sale. It works! The bike for Little Elvis is 20 inches! It looks so big, but he does a good job on it. He has problems getting off the bike, but we'll get there. We put the flamingoes on the balcony of the playhouse/shed. They love the location, and I'm so thrilled he didn't want them in the front yard.
Christmas morning at my other grandmother's. Little Elvis managed his fits for the most part, but all of the excitement (and his personal kryptonite) finally got to him and we went home with a screaming child. My aunt gave him money with 2 little transformers. Transformers have been his kryptonite since he was 4. Those have been taken away. He probably has other kryptonites, but transformers consistently bring out the fits.
Cheese Puff loves Minnie Mouse, but didn't have one. I told my aunt he'd like one. I meant a little one. He's a little overwhelmed by big Minnie. Baby Plum and I are trying to get him to like her a little more. Apparently my Minnie voice isn't very good.
