70 weeks old!
This week consisted of a lot of playing dress up, pretending to be asleep and then awake, laughter from being put in the other girl's bed after getting up from a nap (apparently the funniest thing EVER), climbing, reading books, and plenty of eating. I got to go to a couple thrift stores on my own, which I really enjoy. One was combined with a trip to collect rent in Springfield (the Savers thrift shop in West Springfield has so much stuff!) and the others were just quick stops while out doing errands in town.
The big chairs are good for standing on, too. It's easier to reach the food that way.
And Mama's water glass.
Pick me up, pick me up!
I found these adorable little dolls at Savers. I paid $4.00 for all of them. Looking them up online, I found out that they are Honey Hill Bunch Dolls made by Mattel from 1976-1978. They are worth about $10.00 each!
On Sunday, we met Chris, Kelly, Olivia and Evelyn at the Universal Kids play area. It was our first time there and the girls had a blast. There is a big play area with all kinds of toys in different themes (which wasn't particularly exciting) and a room with ball pits and slides, which was VERY exciting!
She had the best crazy static hair!
Oliva and Maya climbed out of the ball pit themselves.
You're coming with me!
It's a lot of work to climb out!
We all enjoyed some popcorn.
Everyone was supposed to wear socks in the play areas. Ella kept taking hers off. This provided her with the special super power of vertical slide assent. Maya was jealous.
Here are some other highlight photos from the week.
If you are Maya, and you are hungry and outside, the kale in the garden looks pretty tasty.
On Monday evening I took the girls out to a choral Christmas concert at the Helen Hills Hills Chapel in Northampton. Kathy came with us and Brett stopped by after dropping the equipment off at Scrabble Club. We didn't stay the whole time because Maya and Ella started getting giddy-tired and wanting to crawl down the aisles. Brett biked back to Scrabble Club while Kathy and I took the girls home and put them to bed. They went to sleep easily after quite a few games of hide-behind-Grandma's-back-and-pretend-to-be-gone-only-to-run-out-laughing-a-second-later.
