Remember that toy Asher desperately wanted for Christmas? Here he is, playing with it on Christmas day. Look closely - you might have to squint to see it.
But I will say that he does love it. And we're using its flimsiness as his first opportunity to learn to take care of something. His very special, very beloved toy is his responsibility. Brother isn't allowed to play with it unless granted permission, but if it's left on the floor, it's anybody's game.
Also, this is Silas playing with his only Christmas request - a monster truck (thank you thank you Grandma and Paw-Paw for finding one without a remote control! That's harder to do than you'd think). Actually, that was not his only request. He really wanted a gun (how is it possible that this tiny boy even knows that toy guns exist?!). That idea was quickly and consistently vetoed, though. You'll shoot your eye out, kid.
