Josh flew home late Friday night, just in time for Thanksgiving Long Weekend! Yay!
Daddy had to go back to work on Tuesday, and so the girls and I resumed our simple routine of days at home. I think I had been cleaning up the kitchen from breakfast when Hopey brought me this tray. "Mommy, I brought you a pretend snack. There's a pan for you to cook eggs, and there's lettuce and tomato for your veggies. And there's a blue teacup for if you want tea, and the pink teapot has a pretend lid on it, so you can pour yourself more tea if you want." I asked her about the toy car also on the tray, "Is that for me to play with if I get bored while I eat my snack?" To which she replied, "Um, yeah!" :o) I did take a video of the whole sequence, but it was too large to upload here. :o)
I did make one pan of Rice Krispie squares with puffed rice cereal instead of the Krispies, and the girls had been eyeing the marshmallows ever since we bought them together at the store. :o) So finally, they got their chance to have some marshmallows for a snack!
Hee hee - Joy looks like a little football player because she had a sweater vest with a hood on it on underneath her apron.
Amanda, the friend who was watching them, brought some books her parents used to read to her, and forgot them at our house, so Hope was quick to request one of them as her bedtime story that night. :o) Amanda told me Hope had been read to for several hours in the day! I believe it too! Great way to learn and fill the imagination. :o)
