Favorite Holiday Things

December 10th, 2009

My favorite thing at Christmas is the tree. Miss Mouse, on the other hand, draws her holiday spirit from the stuffed animals.

We have several — okay more than several — stuffed Christmas critters. Bears, reindeer, dogs, penguins, and a giant stuffed moose. Miss Mouse adores them all. We line them up each day in front of the entertainment center, and she proceeds to gather them up and disperse them around the house, chatting to her friends as she does so.

One of her favorite things is to pile into a laundry basket with all the animals.

I have no idea why.

But for some reason, it gives her great pleasure to wedge herself into a small laundry basket and then have me pile the animals on top. Then she flings them all out, and we repeat the process.

She’s so weird.

    Stephanie shares this particular oddity. I have pictures of her in large boxes, small closets, and any other 'her-sized' space. I think it's mostly a joke now, but i imagine that it had some more earnest beginnings…
