The Bestest Present Ever

Of all the toys expensive and not, and the clothes and cookies abundant, the favorite toy of the season?

This $9.99 doggy and blanket that my Grandma got my son at Kohl's. He named it Shoebee and has talked to it constantly since yesterday morning.

There is something wonderful about watching the joy from a child on Christmas morning. This small item brought him joy. I only wish I'd known before I spent all that other money . . .

LOL - you never know what they're going to suddenly love. What's even funnier is when you buy some great present and they like the box better than the present itself. *grin*

Sounds like he had a terrific Christmas.

There's a strong message here for this Grampa.

Heh. Looks like he got a cool scooter to take Shoebee for rides on too! :-)

I noted the collective enjoyed the 50 cent teeny slinkys I got them....

one never knows what sort of inexpensive novelty will prove to be entertaining

As long as the dog doesn't start talking back to him, you're probably ok.

Meanwhile, I got enough coal to keep Detroit in electricity for the next 100 years... stupid Santa and his nosy list-making...
