We Love New Toys


I always love when new toys come into the house. It always means new stories, more adventures in play, and a lot of laughter. Selena is a little confused in the picture above, as she brought most of her new tea set over to my computer, where I was sitting, she poured tea, then told me to cheer. I threw my hands in the air and yelled, “Yipee!” That wasn’t what she meant, so she told me, “No, Grandma in the cup.” I examined the little cup and informed her, “I don’t fit in the cup.” This set her little mind into deep thought.

I knew what she meant but again I threw my hands in the air and yelled, “Yipee!” She wouldn’t give up until I took the tea cup and toasted a cheer with her then drank her imaginary tea. Don’t I sound mean?

100_4079 She loves these little dollar store games. One is called Gingerbread man race. You roll the dice then move your gingerbread man the number on the dice, the first person to get 10 wins the game. There are different ways to play this game, and we will explore those down the road. The other one is Tic Tac Toe with snowmen and gingerbread men. In the picture above after playing several games of each with Papa, Selena had to line the gingerbread men up on the one game.

Today we’ve had hours of fun listening to Selena play with all her new birthday toys.

  1. That is one of the super fun things about new toys, how will they play with it.

    I like the idea of the gingerbread game.

  2. Great pictures and a funny story about tea party. I am looking forward to Christmas already and to seeing Anna enjoy her new toys. We have the same game but Halloween version - ghost race.

  3. I love your tea party story!!! So funny. Did she get frustrated at all?

    Those little games sound cute.

  4. The kids have been restless today, and it's all I can do to stop myself from opening a couple of the toys under the tree, to set them playing.
