He started his day by opening a gift of cowboy boots, which he immediately needed to put on and then refused to take off. All day he wore his boots, even during nap time! It was pretty entertaining to watch him learning to walk in his boots. They have a slight heel and managed to throw him off balance just enough to make it humorous, but not enough to actually do him harm. Since we are in the middle of moving and I have pregnancy brain to the extreme, I moved all of my wrapping things (including tape, I had to use packing tape) to the new house. This only posed a brief problem, however, and in the long run made me get back in tune with my creative side. M and I had fun trying to find ways to wrap T's few gifts. We rummaged through our burn bin and managed to find enough boxes and magazine pictures to make it wonderful. One Thomas the Tank Engine friend ended up wrapped in tinfoil. His train tracks ended up wrapped in a repurposed paper grocery bag with a custom drawn by Mommy Thomas picture. The rest were put into a tea box, a cereal bar box and a cream cheese box and covered in various pictures. My favorite was the one with the picture of sushi. Nana and Papa and Meme and Papa all came over for burgers and cake. Nana made a wonderful cake that tasted as good as it looked.
