Geordie, oh Geordie! That boy is unbelievable. He helped himself to all of the presents that he could find that smelled like they should be his. He would play with each to for a while, then run to the tree to find another. Finally he settled on one and chewed it until he de-squeakered it. What really made me laugh was the gift he rejected. Knowing how he likes to open packages, I wrapped up some new toothpaste I got him. I know it isn't exciting, but he does so like to tear gift paper. I figured he would enjoy the opening process. As soon as he realized it was toothpaste and not a toy or food, he stopped unwrapping and gave me the Stink Eye! He wouldn't touch it again, and instead went and helped himself to another toy. He is so much like a little kid. When they are babies, they don't quite understand Christmas, and you have to help them unwrap things. The next year, they understand more, and they get excited and participate in Christmas activities. The next year, you can barely get them to sit down for the whole month of December because they are wound up thinking of presents and goodies! That is Geordie now. He knows what a Christmas tree is. He knows that things wrapped in gift paper are for him. (I tried using newspaper to wrap his stuff, but it has the wrong smell, and he won't touch it.) More so now than when he was little, he loves opening his gifts and playing with each toy. The expression "As excited as a kid at Christmas" should be replaced with "As excited as a pup at Christmas!" My puppy sure was excited. And so much fun to watch!
