This is what arrived in the post yesterday. A BIG box addressed to Miss Frances from her two favorite cousins!
It was full of treasures, new and old, like this lama which came with her mama! There was a polka dot cat that received many hugs, a whole bunch of the boys old books and some Mega Blocks!
In amongst all of these treasures were more birthday presents! Frances and I were chomping at the bit to find out what was underneath all that wrapping, but we thought it would be more fun to wait till daddy got home to find out with us.
Daddy was a big help with tearing off the paper. Hurray, finally an Eric Carle book! (for some crazy reason we just didn’t have any!) The Very Hungry Caterpillar!
A lift the flap book about apples. This will definitely become a favorite with the little mampoul girl!
This book is a riot! Petite Rouge, a Cajun Red Riding Hood. I read this to Frances at breakfast this morning and couldn’t stop laughing! There is even a glossary to help with some of those Cajun words. Fish is Fish by Leo Lionni, love love love his illustrations and have been perusing his books on Amazon. Big Dog Little Dog, and All About Corduroy two of my childhood favorites!
The big one was saved for last, and ooh how exciting, a Playmobile 123 doll house!! I don’t know who was more excited Frances or mama! Auntie Sayer sure knows what a little girl will like! There was also another lady with a car (one can never have enough ladies and cars!!) some more little cars and Franny’s first set of chopsticks. These will come in handy the next time we all eat sushi!!
Thank you SO much Auntie Sayer and the cousins! We are having so much fun playing with all the new toys today and reading all of the new books! We also enjoyed the boys drawings, we’ll have to hang them on the refrigerator. Thanks as well for all the pajamas!!
