A Christmas Story

Santa was here.
Ish was out-of-his-mind excited about all his presents.
Dada had to help out a little.
But Ish eventually got the hang of unwrapping for himself.
And he had no problem digging through all the present bags.
He insisted that Matt build the Tigger & Pooh Super Sleuth Treehouse when he unwrapped it.
Which gave us exactly 2 minutes to open our own presents.
FYI - I don't share my Swedish Fish.
After our 2 minutes, we resumed with Ish's mania.
He tore into more of his gifts.
And he was so excited with each one he opened.
Oh, and we watched A Christmas Story the whole time.
Ish even helped Dada take apart the 5 million pieces of plastic and cardboard that each toy seemed to be attached to.
Then - after a quick waffle and some Christmas showers - it was off to Grandma and Grandpa's house - where Santa had also been.
Ish couldn't believe that there were so many presents waiting for him there.
Mare Mare stopped by for a bit.
She had quite a few presents waiting for her too.
She loved the reindeer antlers that her favorite aunt bought for me (that would be me, of course).
Ish was quite satisfied with his haul today.
All that present-opening-toy-playing led to a pretty good eating day for Ish, which makes me happy.
And now, it's 7:00, Ish is in bed (though he protested) and I'm typing from my chair-and-a-half looking over a sea of new toys that Ish is in love with. I know he can't wait to get up tomorrow morning and play play play. I can't wait either.

I hope you all had a wonderful day today too. Merry Christmas from the Ish home!
