Different Parent, Different Reaction

We knew at her age, there were only so many toys that people could really buy for her…so we decided to let her family have the opportunity to get her what they wanted. We only did Santa; he brought her stocking stuffers and an adorable rocking unicorn from Pottery Barn Kids. Soooo…I decided to have fun with her for Easter!
