Yes, Catherine remembered that she asked Santa for an airplane (too), but she got lots of play time today out of the helicopter. Did you know that helicopters have countdowns in preparation for blastoff?
Elisabeth is trying out her new headset in preparation for rides in the real airplane:
She's also getting started on multitasking, viewing Elmo on her new mini-DVD player and the LeapPad Disney Princess book simultaneously. This practice is probably strongly recommended against by pediatricians nationwide, I'm sure.
Catherine enjoyed the nice weather today by some practice on her new bike (yeah, the seat's too low, but she still needs to stand up fairly frequently).
We only had one minor throw-up incident, which was a great improvement over the previous night when I was sitting up most of it with Catherine, barking like a seal with a nasty bout of croup.
Today was a great day.
