Celebrating Christmas a little early with Grandma Linda and Grandpa Artos. Cyane's been fighting the flu and is a little doped up on tylenol and antibiotics.
Jaden was also sick but definitely excited to be opening up presents! Between my math degree and Mikail's engineering degree we were able to put together this mechano set. 5-8 year olds yeah right!
Mikail and Jaden opening up his airplane set.
My Dad watching the kids unwrap their presents. Looking good Dad.
My Mom and the master mind behind all the toys. Thanks Grandma Linda!
Cyane unwrapping her favorite gift - a pink tri-scooter!
Pure joy! No small feat for a really sick little girl.
And she's off. She's been burning tracks around the dining room table since. Need to find some wide open scooting space for her.
Jaden and Mikail working on the mechano set.
Grandpa Artos assembling the Polar Express Train.
All aboard! Cyane Jaden and Grandma Linda mesmerized by the train.
What is it about boys and remote controls?
Chugga chugga chugga chugga choo choo!
Cyane looks on.
Jaden too. Both a little doppy.
Grandpa Artos happy with his toy assembling abilities.
Jaden playing with his mechano set - its a crane, its a plane, its a helecopter.
Group shot with the tree. Thanks Grandma Linda and Grandpa Artos for all the great gifts.
My Mom and Cyane, who's pooped and ready for bed.
Christmas morning Jaden discovers his stocking stuffed and more presents stacked under the tree! I'm a bit ambivalent about Santa Claus getting all the credit for this, but I'll suck it up for a few more years.
Zhu Zhu hamsters!!! Plush, squirmy, squeaky, randomly mobile electronic pets! A huge hit with both Jaden and Cyane.
