Magical

I mentioned the Magic Tree House series the other day. We’re almost through Book 3: Mummies in the Morning…and the kids don’t want me to stop reading. We even took the book outside today 🙂

When I stopped reading for a bit, Burke and Maggie requested to look at the book. While looking at the cover, they realized that Burke’s sunglasses are red…just like Jack’s glasses. And Maggie requested piggy tails…just like Annie.

And then they realized they have a “tree house” … So Maggie went up and is pretending to be Annie.

Burke, pretending to be Jack, yelled “I want to see a swing set!” and ran over to play on the swings. LOL!

Neat side-note…if you go to magictreehouse.com there’s a passport you can download. And when you answer questions about the books you read, you earn a stamp (also to download) for the passport! How cool is that?! 🙂

Friday’s Foto Finish Fiesta

Candid Carrie sponsors this one – head over to her blog and find LOTS of links for bloggers who’ve joined in! (You can join in too!)

I have a very creative brother-in-law (he’s an art teacher). So any time we all get together, the kids – of course – have a BLAST. These pictures were taken at Thanksgiving of 2007. Jason decided he was going to turn the twins into dinosaurs with random things found around my Dad’s house.

Note the clever use of kitchen clippy magnets as the spine and the pop beads as the tail.

I believe Jason even did Maggie’s crazy hair.

AHHHHHH

"AHHHHHH!"

This went on for hours… 🙂
