S is for Schwinn Roadster

Santa Claus visited our house over the weekend and brought Caleb a Schwinn Roadster Tricycle. Needless to say he was in love at first sight, or so he seemed. He played with it for about five seconds and then discovered that Santa had also brought a Fisher Price Airplane - between the two gifts it was all we could do to draw his attention back to his other presents. We knew he would love the airplane because ever since Paige sent it to our nursery children it is all he thinks about. The moment we arrive at church he starts saying "airplane" and continues to do so all the way through our services until he can finally get it in his hot little hands.
Caleb and his "trike" as he calls it - we didn't know he knew that word

after a quick adjustment his feet now reach the pedals, but we're still
working on understanding how they function

more fun with the trike

(he wanted to but was not allowed to take it with him to bed last night)

momentarily distracted by the promise of candy

another superfluous gift

a winning combo!

The lesson here is that nearly 2-year olds are easily satisfied with very little and these elves went WAY, WAY overboard. Some presents are still unopened and that is how they will remain until they are donated to some other worthy cause.

It's funny how kids always cling to one or two gifts. I would save the others for potty training bribery.

Merry Early Christmas to you guys.

I like your carpets and your clavinova. I want a clavinova.

Merry Christmas and I'm glad you got a cool bike. Now all of your kids can ride it.

Is it true you will be away from your husband for three months? Why? Isn't he allowed to leave? Who is going to wait on your pregnant self?

To kids, there really is no difference between 4 gifts and 40. Be grateful you learned it early.

I love the footy jammies. Why can't he sleep with the airplane? Bea sleeps with the Wizard of Oz DVD. You need to blog about being away from your husband for three months. Sounds hard.

How did I just catch on to the fact that you are spelling Christmas with your titles...nice touch. You have really become quite the blogger!

I hope that his love of his Fisher Price airplane will transfer over to a love for the airplane you will be spending a lot of time on this weekend!

What? You're going to be away from your husband for 3 months?!

I love that little trike. I want to buy it for one of my kids.

Merry Christmas!

YEAH for Christmas!!! I am considering not getting Gabe anything since I know my family will exceed his ability to understand the concept, but I might feel too guilty to be that practical.

Wow. It looks like you do fun things... I've been meaning to comment for a while. Thanks for checking out my blog earlier. Oh, and it looks like both of us missed out on the gift exchange thing so if you wanna, I will...

The Schwinn Roadster 12 Inch trike is amazing. I recommended it to all my friends for this Christmas.
