Avinash is always upset because his turned out to be much smaller than the others. Nandini and Lakshman's are huge. She very sweetly offered to share stockings with him this year and he then offered to share his Christmas presents. It was a very touching brother and sister moment.
Also, evidence of all the planning they do together, and sometimes scheming.
The kids had some big presents
under next to the tree this year. Santa kept one of the big boxes out, and yeah, they loved that too.
He found one of the Elmos on Christmas Eve. He came running into my room to wake me up, shouting "Elmo there! Elmo there!" He was jumping up and down with excitement. It makes me laugh just to think about it.
He had his surprise but it was just a day early is all.
An indoor basketball arcade game.

spoon and fork have been a major help with feeding time too.
He wanted to find every single new color that he had and very carefully checked each one. Every time he found one he would get so excited.

Hispter Disney Princess ones I made at Halloween as funny as I did. Especially since Ariel was wearing glasses! Ha.
