Maddie's First Christmas With Us

December 2014

Thank you again to everyone who reads Through Maddie's Eyes and entered into last month's giveaway.  Thank you to LUSH Cosmetics for generously sending us the Christmas Penguin Bubble Bar free of charge and for the kind words they said about Maddie and the blog.

December Adventures 

I believe this was Maddie's favorite month with us because she was able to help us wrap presents!  The sound of the wrapping paper and tissue paper proved more exciting than her toys.  As part of my Secret Santa present from work, Maddie received a brand new toy, a much needed distraction while her humans were wrapping.  The toy has jingle bells, crinkly ribbons and, her favorite, a large fuzzy ribbon.  

With the cold weather, Maddie became even more of a snuggle bug, especially with the stuffed snowman from Build-a-Bear Workshop.  The two were often found cuddled on the couch or playing tug-a-war with the snowman's hat. 

Merry Christmas!

It didn't take long for Maddie to discover all of the toys on the Christmas tree!  When we weren't looking, she loved to eat the branches and bat the ornaments.  On Christmas eve, she discovered that the lights were more interesting than anything else. 

Finally on Christmas morning, Maddie was allowed to destroy the amazing Christmas paper we had kept her away from.  She spent about an hour clawing, rolling on, and eating the paper.  Now I know what to get her next year!
