Dog park Christmas

Seth, Ryan, Darcy, Emma and I spent part of Christmas day at the Cherry Creek Dog Park. It was a good day to go. The weather was nice, and it wasn't very crowded. I took lots of pictures. Here are a few of my favorites.

Wrap star

Usually, after someone unwraps a Christmas present, the paper goes right into a trash bag. This year, however, it was placed on Emma instead.
The pile grew... 
and grew. 
She didn't care. 
She'd have stayed in the pile all day... 
if someone hadn't objected.
Good girl, Emma. 
You are our wrap star.

Merry little Christmas

We must have been good this year because Santa left a lot of presents under our tree.
We gathered together in the living room to open them. 
 Except for Darcy. Darcy had suspicions and stayed in the hallway.
Open the packages!
I got candy corn candles. 
Seth got socks. 
James got a gaming headset...
and heart-shaped sunglasses. 
Ryan got a block heater...
and tuition money.
Emma got a new sibling.  
It was a nice Christmas.

Christmas cookies

"I take cookie now, please."
"I really want that cookie, Mama." 
"Cookie now, Mama!"
So I gave her the cookie. One cronch and it was gone. 
"That was good, Mama." 
"More cookies, please!" 
Emma's turn. 
"Pay attention, Emma."
"Look at the cookie, Emma."
"Come on, Emma."
"What is wrong with you, Emma?"
 Finally, she took it.
Multiple cronches. 
"That pretty good. I take another."
