santa's library

So, S got quite the haul of new books for Christmas, and we are all loving them (see if you can spot M's favorite title...thank you, MoWasks. you made his Christmas.) Here's a list.

  • The Complete Adventures of Curious George
  • Llama Llama, Red Pajama
  • Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day
  • Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs
  • Harold and the Purple Crayon
  • Fancy Nancy and the Boy from Paris
  • Fancy Nancy at the Museum
  • Goodnight Moon
  • The Umbrella
  • There's a Map on My Lap!
  • The Chimpanzees of Happytown
  • Angelina Ballerina
  • The Snowy Day
There are a few things under the tree that she hasn't opened yet as we are waiting for the Feather Nester fam to get home from Texas.

We are really enjoying the new books, and we're glad to have them as we'll be repacking the Christmas books soon. We are seriously afraid that S is going to have a meltdown when all the Christmas stuff goes away, which will likely happen on Friday. She still likes to say hello to the nutcrackers every single day...usually every single hour.

As for me and M, we also scored a few new titles. This I Believe II, The Tales of Beetle the Bard, and Last Child in the Woods. Technically, I also acquired a copy of 60 Hikes within 60 Miles of Nashville, but I'm "sharing" it with my brother, and he is currently in possession of said book. As possession is nine-tenths and all, I'm not holding my breath.

Happy Sunday, peeps. We're skipping church this morning and just chilling out having tea parties in the living room floor and playing with S's babies.

Excellent book list. Perfect for any child!
I'm betting on "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" as M's fav. But maybe I'm just really hungry right now. :)

Maybe to alleviate the meltdown you could have a different little project to occupy her time like crafting paper dolls to replace the nutcrackers. I'm envisioning cone people with yarn hair.

Life's hard on little girls who love the holiday spirit!

I'm also all about "Cloudy"--what great pictures Stephen Kellogg draws. Also love "The Snowy Day" and of course, Curious George.

As for M's favorite, I'm going to have to guess "There's a Map on my Lap!".

Sounds like Santa left quite a collection. Also, we had a great time in Music City and loved seeing you and M and the kiddo at breakfast. It will be our treat the next time we are in town!! Glad you guys had a great holiday!
