Jesse in tears again on Santa's lap
The giant Panda bear from Lyn's dad

Jesse was just over 18 months old, so this Christmas gave everybody the fun of watching him open presents and understand the gift was the item, and not the pretty paper.

Of course Christmas eve was at our house, so everybody could enjoy the new baby. Lyn's whole family and Dave's parents were in attendence to enjoy the holiday. Unfortunately, this was the period of grand excess where the baby was literally buried in presents, only to be topped in excess at each following holiday.

To our surprise, he was still pretrified of his visit to Santa and we again have only pictures of him in tears.

Santa brought various toys for gross motor development (giant blocks, nerf basketball hoop), but the best present was from Lyn's dad. He insisted that his grandson have a giant panda teddy bear, literally larger than Jesse this day. "Panda Bear"remained a tresured toy and  has traveled with us across the years. He still resides on a shelf in Jesse's closet.

This smile and giggle is what everybody came to see.
We used the "plush" Christmas tree one last time.
Finally, old enough to enjoy the present 
more than the wrapping paper
