On Friday night, the kids got books.

Woody and Buzz (I mean Zachary and Simon) were happy with their books! Zachary got most of the National Geographic books I reviewed here. Simon got The First Big Book of Why (from National Geographic) and Brady Needs a Nightlight, which I will be reviewing soon. We all had a great time reading some of the National Geographic books – they really are entertaining.

Gabbie’s books were from the library book sale, plus All-of-a-Kind Family, which I ordered for her. Here are the books she got:

  

She has started reading The First Four Years and Doodle Studio!

Last night, the kids got games from their uncle and aunt.

Zachary was very excited he got Rush Hour Jr. Gabbie was confused because she didn’t remember that she’d played Mastermind before, but she was happy after she played it – and she played it with Zachary too! Simon got Spot It Jr. and he was just a little upset about it. He really wanted Zachary’s game since it has cars.

He did enjoy looking at the animals on his game and I’m sure he’ll like it better when he is in a better mood!

Tonight, all 3 kids should be happy with their presents! And like I said on Friday, I love to make them happy!

It looks like all the kids got some great books to read and I remember reading Charlotte's Web as a young girl and loving it. That totally brought back a few memories for me!! :)

Oh Little House on rocky Ridge was one of my favorite books growing up. I always loved getting games for Christmas because I could actually rope my family into playing them with me lol

I hope she will read it! I know she gets picky sometimes and I'm sure she'll save that one for last. :)

Gabbie loves all the Little House books! And the kids are enjoying playing the games too!

Ohh fun!!! I have always wanted to play Mastermind but still haven't yet. Maybe I can get it for the kids for Christmas and have an excuse to play (hehehe). :) Thank you for linking to Super Sunday Sync!

The All-of-a-Kind Family books were some of my sister and I read when we were growing up.

I remember liking them, but don't really remember the stories. I may have to read Gabbie's copy!
