Don't Bogart the toys.
Before the party, my sisters Amy and Sarah came over to help! THANK GOODNESS! Otherwise, I'm not sure what we would have done! We ran and bought more decorations and then came back and got busy!
This morning we did not go to church or sunday school because of the late, dramatic evening. The kids slept until 9am, they really needed to sleep in!! We went to my Mom's for my neice's, birthday party, she turned five on Friday. We came home and put the kids to bed. At that point Brian and I took the toys out of the boxes and set them up! (then I took a 30 minute nap!)
So, why did I name this entry something about bogarting toys? Because the kids will not share and we are going CRAZY, it's particularly obvious with the new toys. Anna received lots of Dora toys and Noah received lots of trains and cars and trucks. So, here is the situation that would take place tonight: Anna would be playing with her new Dora's Talking House, Noah would be busy with something else and see what she was doing, he would join her playing with the talking house, then she would just leave and go play with his new GeoTrax Train set and he would go ballistic. BALLISTIC. It happened over and over. It was ridiculous. So, I felt they needed a much need break from each other. The poor kids are with eachother non stop.
So, we picked up pizza and then Anna and I went to Target together. This is rare. It usually all of us or none of us. It went really well. We had so much fun. She got a new pair of shoes and she picked out some Sweet Streets with her birthday money. It was so cute, she even wanted to get something for Noah. :-) Anyway, it seemed to work. We came back, bathed them and they only fought 2 or 3 times! Quite an update, but that's all I have for now! Enjoy the pictures!
