A Very Dorothy Christmas

Dorothy received several gifts for Christmas which she likes very much.  This bone, for instance:

And she loved her new kong tennis ball toy given to her by her southern aunt and uncle and cousins:

In fact, this one she loves a little too much, according to me, since she is now constantly demanding that I hold one end of it while she tugs, or that I listen to how loudly she can make it squeak.

But even more than the gifts, Dorothy liked the busy-ness of her days spent at her Auntie's.  She liked having five kids to play with.  Five!  She liked joining them down in the basement for a bit of roughhousing and soccer.  She liked knocking Josie over and giving her kisses (you might not be able to tell, but that is Josie lying supine beneath):

Dorothy liked the wrapping paper, and she liked to watch people unwrap gifts:

Here Dorothy is making sure that a certain box that Josie had just discarded didn't contain something for her:

Dorothy especially liked spending four consecutive days with her dad!  It just doesn't get any better than that.  And more good news:  she was an angel in the car both ways.  I'm thinking next time we won't even need her carsickness meds....
