The Operation

Yeah, I know it's strange... Why am I posting a picture of my child's Playmobil toys?  I guess I just thought it was cute the way she set this up.  Everyone watching this operation so patiently, everyone with the exception of the little girl in the corner turned the other way.  It must be her teddy bear on the table.  She just can't bear to watch.

The poor man with the gaping hole in the top of his skull.  You'd think maybe he should be first in line at the ER!  Happy Friday, happy playing!

Fall Flowers

Maari found for me the last of the wildflowers.

Until spring!

Like many three year old girls, my daughter is crazy for princesses:  Cinderella, Belle, Princess and the Pea, Snow White, Jasmine...and now the Seven Nasty Princesses.  We went to a play put on by some local 7th-9th graders all about some pretty vain sister princesses.  I think the idea of naughty princesses (aren't they usually perfect?) was a bit confusing for little Maari.  Also, the ladies ended up learning their lessons from two witches and instead of living happily ever after with the prince, he fled from the whole lot of them.  None of this follows proper fairytale protocol.  However, I think she kind of got the gist of it.

The "real life" princesses were not at all nasty and were kind enough to pose with their most adoring fan.

And even share their beautiful head pieces.

Making our Maari the 8th princess (although not at all a nasty one!)
