Night Before Christmas. Inesa puts on a deserving face and poses with her present from her brother.
Christmas morning. Inesa opens her gift while Sasha looks on, barely resisting the urge to do it himself.
And it's...a tiara! With a wand! He chose it himself, and she was mighty pleased.
Unbeknownst to me, Sasha also wrapped up a gift bag for Jon, complete with an ornament he'd made at school (and kept secret for five days) and a necklace made out of a Hot Wheels car and yarn.
Santa brought both kids a Big Dog. Sasha named his Tiny, at Jon's suggestion. Inesa named hers Sparkles, because that's the name of the dog in her current favorite Barbie movie. Sigh.
Christmas afternoon, playing with their new toys on their new blanket.
