Autumn likes to go in our closet and shut the door. Usually after a few seconds she starts whining until someone opens the door. Today we saw her go in there and shut the door. We waited for awhile and she never cried. Drew realized this time the light was on. Like a moth to a flame, Autumn totally saw the opportunity to play in there with a light on. She started laughing so I opened the door and this is what I saw. I totally had to grab the camera.

She found her Christmas stash, she is looking at her books and the new Pooh bear is sitting on the floor next to her. The only thing she didn't pull out of the bag was her cousin's Christmas present, and two other gifts we have for her. This is starting early. I admit every Christmas going on a scavenger hunt to find my gifts, but I think that began when I was around 10, not 17 months. :)

To avoid a temper tantrum I let her play with the Pooh bear for a few minutes before hiding him again.

Oh goodness, it was funny enough reading that she snuck into the closet and was playing with toys but then to find out they are her Christmas presents his hilarious!!! That is way too funny.

How cute! You've already started your christmas shopping! One year I did it in October too just to get it out of the way, but then I would go shopping with others to do their christmas shopping and then I would find more stuff for Kaelyn. I refuse to shop this early any more. That christmas we went a little over board.

I need to start blogging about the things Logan does. It's really funny.

Autumn is getting so big! I would love to meet up for lunch one of these days.

Hi April... you can stalk us... I wouldn't care:) That is cute that Autumn found her Christmas presents already.. I too think it is a bit early in life to start the hunt..but she must be an over achiever! We are due on January 2nd. We are not finding out what it is... so it will be a surprise. Congrats on your expected boy.
