I didn't want to write 2 separate blogs, but wanted to post both of these things from today.
#1-"Just Needing to Get Away"
Emma got a Leapster for her birthday and it is a GREAT toy, but so great that it is fought over quite a bit. Brooklyn doesn't know how to play, but she can turn it on, get to the screen where you can color and she can color. I couldn't find Brooklyn today and then as I
approached their bedroom, I heard the Leapster coming from the closet. I opened it and this picture is what I saw. B had made herself comfortable in the pink bucket with the Leapster.
I don't blame her. Sometimes I want to get a magazine (or a cookie!) and go to my closet ALONE and hide! :)
#2-"The Manger Scene (at our House)"
Emma was very busy today when we got home from running a few errands. I was in the kitchen making fudge (there is much stirring required) and heard her ask Brooklyn to help her.
A little while later, they ran into the kitchen asking me to come look in the playroom. I told them I would quickly, but I had to keep stirring so the fudge wouldn't burn. I'm so glad I left what I was doing!! I went in there to find the Little People Nativity all set up with EVERY SINGLE Little Person, Barbie, LIttle Pony, and Disney figurine we own gathered around the stable. I asked what they were doing and Emma said, " Everyone wanted to come see baby Jesus be born!"
This warmed my heart today and reminded me AGAIN that I need to slow down and enjoy my little girls and the sweet, funny things they do each and every day!
