We're still up to our eyeballs in Christmas books here!!! We got a little behind at the end of last week but we got all caught up over the weekend. Miss M has finally caught on that every present is a book...we weren't trying to keep that a secret, in fact I say "what book will we open tonight?" but just last night she finally said, "it's just going to be another book". I detected a slight bit of disappointment, until the said book was opened..."Christmas Bear" a Berenstain Bears Christmas story. All disappointment faded and we snuggled on the couch to enjoy our story!!
We are still working on what Christmas titles we are adding to our collection this year, we will get two, one for each kiddo.
I think JB is going to get one of these:
If you're kids haven't gotten into the "I Spy" series yet, they are so much fun!! Miss M enjoyed them for a short time, but JB LOVES them! We get at least one out every library trip, and I sit and do them while I watch TV...without the kids!! I'm so addicted!
We had some fun the other day, we had Walter Wick's Can You See What I See? Toyland Express book and JB and I thoroughly searched every page!! Later that day we were playing with blocks and it hit me...we can make our own I Spy sets (thank you Garven family, I know, you've been doing this for years). We stacked all 200 of his little wood blocks on thier little table top. Than I had him go in the other room and I put his cars, her princesses and ponies, little people, dinosaurs, any little toy I could find all throughout the blocks. When he came back in I'd name something and he had to find it! This was so fun, they both loved it! Then when I was done playing (read: it was time to make dinner) the kids knocked it all over. As if that wasn't fun enough, they rebuilt it and played again, just the two of them.
So easy, so fun, so repeatable...-
