Happy New Year 2018!

Happy New Year 2018!

Happy New Year! In my family, New Year is our main winter holiday; I receive presents from Ded Moroz (Grandfather Frost) and my family and friends to celebrate! Once the clock strikes 12 on New Year's Eve, I am allowed to open my presents! First though, I posed with a sign to welcome 2018.

Happy New Year 2018!

I looked under the tree and there was a wonderful array of gifts waiting for me to open them! I was so excited to see what they held inside.

Happy New Year 2018!

The first gift, from Ded Moroz, was wrapped in wonderful, wintry paper! It looked like drawings on a chalkboard, actually! What could be inside?

It was a Moana doll! Moana is one of my all-time favorite movies.  The doll is dressed in Moana's chief outfit, including her special necklace.  Thank you Ded Moroz!

Happy New Year 2018!

There was also a gift from my friend Brooke. Hurrah! Brooke gives the best gifts. She and I have a lot in common, so I knew whatever she had sent would be perfect.

Cool! Brooke sent Octonauts-themed gifts! The Octonauts is one of my favorite shows; I love to watch it with Brooke. In fact, one year we dressed up as Shellington Otter and Tweak Bunny from the Octonauts for Halloween! Inside the New Year gift were a red crab, a hilarious Bob the Blobfish, and a gooey splatter of sea snot! Wow, thanks Brooke!

Happy New Year 2018!

The next gift to open was from Mom and Mama, my parents.  I could tell right away because of the narwhal wrapping paper! Hmmm, what could be inside the package?

Whoa! I laughed and laughed! My parents had given me a plush avocado! It was huge and green. I like to eat avocado toast for breakfast with my Mom- and my Mama says that I'm such a New York kid for doing that.  Now I can cuddle with my avocado, hurrah!

Happy New Year 2018!

My next gift was decorated with octopus wrapping paper! It's so funny that there is ocean-themed holiday paper now.

It was an Elsa doll! Elsa wore her pretty holiday dress from the new Olaf's Frozen Adventure short film. She was also holding a tiny reindeer cookie! How cute!

My penultimate gift was also from my parents. What could it be? It had a label that said "do not shake!" Hmmm, very curious!

Happy New Year 2018!

Holy hotdogs! Wow! It was a GoPro camera and a camera mount for my bicycle! So cool! I was so excited that I jumped up from beneath the tree and cheered. Yay!

Happy New Year 2018!

Then it was time for my final New Year gift. Under the tree, wrapped in peppermint-striped paper, was a gift from my Chi'i, my Mama's mama.  She also sends amazing gifts! I wondered what was in the little box.

Happy New Year 2018!

Wow! It was a beautiful heishi necklace made with coral and turquoise beads. It is so beautiful and I was so excited to put it on.

Happy New Year 2018!

What a wonderful selection of gifts! Thank you Ded Moroz, Brooke, Mom, Mama, and Chi'i!! I jumped up and down in the crumpled wrapping paper before putting it all in the recycling bin.  Hurrah! What a wonderful New Year!

Happy New Year 2018!

Can you believe it's 2018? Wow! I'm sending all of my blog readers wishes for a wonderful, safe, happy, and healthy 2018. 

How were your holidays? Did you receive any gifts from your friends and family? Happy Happy New Year!

Love,
Inky
