Didn’t clean out the garage or accomplish anything as daunting as that today but did accomplish a few things. We took down the tree today and packed up the decorations. Moved Eva’s Kitchen back to where it lives and I organized that kitchen twice. Eva and her friend tore it apart tonight while we were visited by our friends A and R and their two kids. Eva enjoys taking every single piece of fake food she has and pouring it all into a big plastic bucket and calling it fruit salad. We were hoping that we could “thin the herd” a bit and get rid of the cheap plastic stuff we bought her a few years ago in favor of the nicer Melissa and Doug stuff she’s gotten recently, (much of it at Christmas). There has to be some sort of toy “Critical Mass” that we are going to hit eventually, right? At some point we’ve got to get rid of something.
Of course when it comes to my toys, well I guess I know where she gets it from. We did play Skylanders today and this is one of the characters that I got for Christmas. He’s pretty decent but seems to only have one attack instead of two. He’s got more of a defense for his second attack and well, that isn’t that useful. But Chop Chop looks pretty cool. Eva’s still learning how to move in the game and my patience gets a workout each time we play, she just loves to play and at the same time doesn’t quite get it. I use the time that we play together to gather gold for my characters so they can level up.
Our friends A and R visited tonight with their kids and they brought us over dinner from House of Fortune. That was really nice of them to do that. And R made Andrew a little blanket with tags on it, sort of like Taggies, but much better.
