^before unwrapping began!
[Soon to come: a video of Jake walking in to see the kitchen, once I work out the kinks to get it uploaded!]
A video of Jake working on his sandwich slicing skills:
Christmas morning: making sandwiches from Ashley Skinner on Vimeo.
Deric lucked out the day before we celebrated Christmas when he found this fire truck at the thrift store for a whopping $2! It almost stole the show from the kitchen, go figure.
Jake doesn't quite understand yet that after one gift there are usually more, so he's great about playing with each gift as it comes and enjoying it before even noticing other ones. We stretched the morning out as long as we could and I loved spending the morning all together completely uninterrupted and with no need to get other things done that day. It was nice to have some peace and quiet before we started our marathon road trip. ;) More Christmas to come!
