Merry Christmas--toddler style!
Today was Mackenna's play group's Christmas party. Basically, that means that we got together to play as usual, but snacked on Christmas cookies and had a gift exchange. I wasn't sure how the exchange would go over because before we left the house Mackenna was insisting that the present she was taking to the party was her present. She had no interest in the whole exchange idea.
Then she saw Teensy open her gift: a metal Dora lunch box. Suddenly, Kenna was willing to trade her wrapped gift from home for something else. Teensy was only too happy to hand the lunch box over to her sister and experience the thrill of opening another present (Kenna had refused to open the one that had been handed to her). Teensy was giddy to receive a Hello Kitty notepad, stamp pad, and rubber stamps.
A Christmas convert! You'd never know that moments before this photo was taken, Mackenna was refusing to participate in the gift exchange. Oh, what magic a Dora lunch box can perform.
