That's what sisters are for


I love how well the kids play together sometimes. Finley loves to get down and do whatever her big sister is doing. They sat and colored together for quite a while.

Such good friends!
And then for something you'll never believe...we opened up the Cars! All 120+ of them. The kids arranged them into a long line.
We all picked out our favorite(s).
Some of our Lightning McQueens.

One benefit of opening them up--it is now far less important to me that we have every single one. In fact, the other day at the store we saw Burnt McQueen, and did we buy it? No we did not. Baby steps.

Cute pics of Sareny and Fin - hopefully they will still like playing together in a few years. I can't believe you guys opened the cars. And I can't believe you have 120 of them! The kid I used to babysit had tons of them, but probably no where near 120. I'm glad the kids can play with them now.

Yay for you for not buying another car. I love the pics of Sareny and Finney coloring together. How sweet! Maybe your cars collection will be like the "peoples" that Cass and Lexi LOVED to play with, and your kids will really enjoy them. I hope so.

Wow. That's amazing. I'm so proud of you. You are an inspiration to me. My girls keep wanting to play my Barbies. Maybe I'll let them...or maybe not. I don't know if I could handle it.
Yeah for you, though :)

I can't believe you opened all these! My jaw just dropped when I saw all those cars. Especially all the McQueens. Wow.

Oh, and Sareny and Finley are adorable. Rhysie-Pie needs to come hang out with Isaac now.

lining objects up is an early math strategy- such brilliant children. good you have all those cars so they can learn to count to like 120.

I'm am SHOCKED that you let the kids play with the cars! Good for you! ;)
Super cute kiddos too!

Zander told me today that "everyone" in his class knows that Sareny is his girlfriend. And he's okay with it. (silly)
