Her second most favorite part of Christmas has been playing with the wrapping paper and packaging in which the presents came.
Ava got to have Christmas twice this year. The first time was with Krista's family (before we left to visit Larry's family in Pennsylvania).
One of Ava's favorite gifts was Ava Bear, a stuffed bear made at the Build-A-Bear Workshop that she received from her Aunt Maddie.
While in Pennsylvania, Ava received another new friend on Christmas morning in the form of a Cabbage Patch Kid. Ava likes the hair on her new doll, but hasn't quite mastered feeding her the bottle yet. You can see, however, that she is concentrating very hard on it.
Ava also received a Little Einsteins guitar which she really enjoys playing with. At the time, however, she was too distracted by the other presents under the tree to give the guitar much attention.
Another of Ava's favorite gifts has been her new xylophone.
She quickly figured out to play it both using the keys and the mallets.
And it appears that she has changed her mind about Santa Clause. (We thought she might.)
Looks like Santa has a new fan.
