The Little House

Marian had so much fun playing in Carolina’s playhouse. We would come to the sliding side window and pretend to order something. Then we would pay with a little “credit card”. Carolina’s little plastic cash register makes a little computer sound when you swipe the card through it. She also enjoyed washing the dishes, cooking and driving the car.

These pictures speak for themselves. These two became pretty tight during the Christmas visit.

Granddad is distracted, now’s my chance to escape.

Aw Oh. Grammie caught me.

The Red Wagon

Tuesday, December 9 –

The weather’s been so fine and Marian enjoys being outside, so we’ve been giving her rides in the kid’s old wagon. The door is off, and the seats are cracked or missing, but with a few pillows, it’s perfect for Marian…and Coconut (who doesn’t miss a chance to ride).
