The xmas basement went over really well. Both kids were absolutely delighted. Mika already made us muffins in her easy bake oven. Both kids are having a blast with the carpet skates - especially Declan as he has become hockey obsessed. ALL that kid wants to do is play hockey or 'wockey' as he says it. When he's not chasing a ball or a puck up and down the hall, he is checking out his hockey cards and happily talking about the "wockey payers" or "wockey man". Declan digs watching hockey on TV too - he cries if you turn it off before the game ends.
Mika received a very special present from her Uncle Lucas: a Fender Squier Mini guitar. She wants to learn Layla as her first song. I'm thinking Twinkle Twinkle Little Star might be more appropriate. Or maybe some Dire Straits...who knows?
Another very special present that Mika received is her Nana's Ilse doll, now renamed Molly. Ilse was the doll that Nana carried in her arms all the way from Germany when they came after the second world war. Molly originally belonged to Nana's great-aunt, was passed down to Ur-Oma (Nana's Mom), then to Nana, and now to Mika. Molly was 'born' sometime in the late 1800's.

Sounds like a true Canadian! Is it true that Canadians are born with hocky skates on their feet? Ouch!

What wonderful gifts! My son got a guitar from his uncle for Christmas also, but it's not a Fender :)
