Grandma came for Christmas, which was very exciting across the board for Soren. He really got into opening his presents, and he got lots of cool stuff. He got a fort from Santa, a cash register with Euro dollars from Alex and Rich, and a bunch of other cool stuff (none of it as fascinating as Grandma's phone, second only to Aunt Alex's which plays music). Soren modeled his new umbrella for us since it was raining (as always) on Christmas. His jammies for 2009 featured sock monkeys, just for the record.
