We had a few visitors to the house over the holidays including some little people about the same age as Nevlin. It was great to see that Nev continues to get used to new friends, but sometimes is challenged when they compete for attention.
Cam's suburb does an amazing tradition of greeting Santa not by sleigh but by boat at the ferry dock. Here he is coming, between the two lamp posts on the right with a few helpers to hand out presents to all the neighborhood children.
Unlike some, we went with a very modest sized present, that Nevlin patiently waited for with Cameron. There were probably about 60 kids patiently waiting for Santa to call out their name. Nev's was small, and sunk down to the bottom of bag 3, so I was hanging with him by the time "Nevlin Hartnell" was called by the man in red & white.
Nevlin got two similar gifts: one from Cioci/Papa/Jess and another from Santa. Here he has just opened "Liam" also known as Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh. Liam's friend, Lilly (AKA Piglet) was already opened upon the package's arrival from Cleveland.
Nevlin was so happy that Lilly finally had a friend that he gave cuddles all around. It was a fantastic Christmas morning. We headed back to the house for cinnamon rolls and mango madness.
