Olive's First Christmas morning

Olive must have been a good little girl in the four months she has been here, because Santa came to our house! Stephen and I had a big decision to make when getting ready to be wrap or not wrap the presents? As a kid all of our Santa gifts were not wrapped, they usually just had a bow or something. But at the Link household Santa wrapped everything. So, we decided that Santa would wrap his presents with special wrapping paper that is different from the rest (starting next year, that is). We got up and found out that the roads were still really bad, so Dano, Honey, Gigi, Auntie M and Uncle Isaac weren't going to attempt to come down. That was a bummer, but it ended up being just fine. We will celebrate on Sunday, which means Christmas lasts longer! Hooray! Olive really like to pull the paper off of the presents! She would get to the toy and shake it, drop it and look around like she was ready for another one. I hope that isn't a pattern.
She loved seeing what was in her stocking too! A special stuffed bunny named Gardenia from Daddy and several other toys which of course went straight in her mouth!

"Here Daddy, this one is for you. I hope you like it!"Wrigley and Olive are very interested in finding out what is in the box. Oooh!! A new driver! Well, technically a certificate for him to pick out whichever driver he wants and a "free" Sunday each month to use it.
Now it is Mommy's turn. Santa sent a note that said I needed to put on my blindfold.The Project Runway limited edition sewing machine!! Thank you Stevie and Olive! Mommy is so excited to start learning to sew and working on fun projects.

Merry Christmas!
