I love Lavender's name, too! Cosmo, who is 12 years old, knows all about opening Christmas presents. This was Lavender's first Christmas with us, so we don't know if she had done it before or not, but she got right into the spirit of things and opened her presents. She is very smart and catches on quickly to how we do things at our house. She's a sweetheart and Cosmo and I love her!
