Happier things

As yesterday's post was a complete and total downer, today's is happy...more of my favorite stuff!! I know everyone is thrilled. This week's winner is my Mickey Mouse bank. I've had it as long as I can remember, and somehow it reminds me of being a little kid. The same bookshelf that the bank sits atop also serves as home for some of my favorite books from my childhood: Sideways Stories from Wayside School, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, The Secret Garden, A Little Princess, and a whole host of Sweet Pickles books. There is also a collection of Richard Scarry stories.

We've already started getting books for the baby. Our only purchase for the baby (aside from a ceiling fan for the mini-me's room) has been a collection of Little Golden Books. We bought the Disney collection strictly for the fact that it contained the Three Little Pigs and Scamp. The baby is also a proud mini-environmentalist as it owns a copy of The Lorax- a gift from Miss Alice way over in CO. M and I walked all around the children's section of Joseph-Beth Booksellers last weekend, and we realized that we will likely spend many a weekend there. I can't wait!!

The Adventures of Frog and Toad is a favorite in the Morton house.
