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