mine wagon!!

each christmas the girls get one big present from santa. we were having a hard time figuring out what kawena would be getting. but i think santa knew just what she would absolutely love! christmas morning as mitch carried kawena to see what was "under" the tree, this is what she did when she laid her eyes on it for the first time:

is that mine

"mine wagon!"

 

and as she climbed in for the first time to try out her new wheels she was overjoyed!

mine wagon

little did santa know how MUCH she was going to love the wagon! you see she sat in that thing ALLDAY christmas and we all pulled her from room to room as she sat like a queen strapped into her new wagon.

 

when grandma and grandpa came over bearing way too many gifts, there she sat...

here comes grandma

pulled to the front door to see who had come! "oh yipee! more people to pull me around in mine wagon!"

 

while everyone sat opening their stockings, there sat kawena checking out the cool cup holders in her wagon!

(pictured here is mitch's mom, nani, mitch's dad, mitch's grandma, aka. grandma great, my mom, and kawena sitting, surprisingly enough, in her wagon!)

 

she sat in her wagon during the whole present opening, while sisters and tutu's handed her presents to open! i mean, is that the life or what??!

since christmas, that girl has been pulled to the kitchen, to her room, to the den, up and down the hall countless times, to the bathroom, and pretty much any part of the house that she can possibly think of to be pulled in that wagon. she asks to have the wagon right next to her crib at night so she "can touch it!" she pretends to take a fully clothed bath in it. she sits in it to watch movies. she even asks me to sing the "wagon song" when i rock with her at night and nap time.  have any of you even heard of the "wagon song"?  yep, neither have i! but i make a new one up every time she asks for it! i'm just a good mom that way! i tell you this girl is infatuated with this radio flyer wagon! in fact, right now as i write this she is sitting in her wagon watching curious george perfectly content!

 

i'm pretty sure santa had absolutely NO idea just how PERFECT and how in L.O.V.E. kawena would be with her new wagon!

 

way to go santa!! you scored big time this year!

Mahina said...

ashley said...

I love those years when Santa gets it just right! He did good this year with one child but not so with the other two. Darn. The pictures of your daughter are darling!

Amanda said...

That's SO cute! I just love the quirky little things small children become obsessed with! I know one day when they're annoying teenagers I'm going to miss this darling little stage!

Definitely the Queen!

Erika said...

That is too hilarious!!! So cute!

This is the best story. My favorite picture is the one of grandma holding all the gifts at the door and Kawena in her wagon just watching and waiting to be pulled somewhere else.

Well, you can't blame her. This is a really cool wagon. The back rests fold down so you can take a bath. (sort of) or carry boxes and stuff on a flat surface. You can sit and face your baby doll or a friend (even a sister once in a while). It's awesome, really.

Sarah said...

That is so cute! What a great idea Santa had!

Michelle said...

When we got our kids a wagon Nic was in front Michelle middle and Alicia in the back and they would ride down the hill to catch the bus when they were late. Hide the wagon in the tall grass and then pull it up after school.I just learned this last year at a family gathering.I always wondered why there shoe would wear out so soon, no brakes you know. It was a radio flyer and it would fly down the hill!! Wagons are great!PMV

Danielle said...

I love it!!!! And I bet the wagon song is SO cool, maybe you could record it just for the fun of it. I can only imagine her touching her wagon as she falls asleep. What a cutie pie. I'm thinking Santa is going to need to bring one of those to our house next year.

Bridget said...

Very cute. I wish someone would pull me around in a wagon.

jessica said...

Okay so Bridget stole my comment right out of my head! And I had to do a double take on those raspberry sherbet walls...FABULOUS!

Lauren in GA said...

I love that she calls it, "mine wagon"...so cute! I think it is so darling that she stayed in her new wagon so long!

Becca said...

That's awesome! Jaike has that same one but doesn't love it quite that much

Tonya said...

I have to say I noticed those hot pink walls right away. AWESOME! Kawena's love for her wagon is so sweet. Our wagon that looks very similar got dragged into the forest behind our house by Sophia, then dragged to the pond by the neighbors, Currently we can see it floating in the shallow part of the pond from Sophia's bedroom window. We should probably go rescue it one of these days. Hmmm....
