A kitten has been Eli's only Christmas request for months now, and we just couldn't resist. We got her on Tuesday afternoon, and we didn't think it was possible to keep her hidden until Christmas morning! So Eli got an early Christmas present!

We had him sit on the couch with his eyes covered, and then asked him to open his eyes as we placed the kitten in his lap. His face was priceless! He asked, "Is her real?" and then "Is her mine?" :) He named her Lucy.

So far so good with little Lucy! She's super friendly, gentle, and playful. Eli is in love, and we are just so happy watching him with her. This is how I found them this afternoon...

What a great Christmas gift for our little family! Long live Lucy the cat! :)
