menu plan monday ~ july 22, 2013

We had a lot of twin time this past week while their parents were out of town for the weekend. Lots of fun, as usual.

They made colorful cookies with Pa.

They read lots of books during quiet time. They like to push the love seats together, but end up on the same one, anyway.

July 24 is Great-Ma’s 96th birthday, so the twins updated the “days until” chalkboard.

They found new dresses in the kitchen and Rose Red was SO excited when she saw the polka dot one. She kept saying, “I like the polka dot one! Is it mine?? Is it mine??” Yup. Happy girl!
