This one of my favorite pictures of baby Abby. This little horse goes to bed with her every night, he’s ragged and worn now, he’s been her best friend for three years now, and his name is Seinfeld. When Abby is asked what she wants for Christmas this year, she says, “I want a new Seinfeld that is bright and sparkly.”
And so the search began, Seinfeld is actually a Carter’s Just One Year Plush Pony Horse with a Pink Saddle, and he’s been discontinued. But I found one on eBay for the “bargain” price of $39, and of course her Daddy ordered it right away, he was just happy to find one. I asked her what else she wanted Santa to bring her and she said, “That’s all I want, Grammie, Seinfield is enough for me.”
Oh, sweet little Granddaughter, are you ever in for an awakening on Christmas morning. I can’t wait for her to open her presents, she is going to be so excited, but I suspect that her “bright and sparkly” Seinfeld will be her favorite gift of all.
Christmas through a child’s eyes, it’s pure magic…
Note: I should add that Abby is not actually staring at the horse, she’s staring at the television in this picture, and guess what she’s watching? Seinfield, thus the name. Just wanted to clear that up.
