Forget the Toys

Forget the toys. Kylie would much prefer to get into Grammy Ellie's paper recycling. The greatest joy of moving to Corvallis has been taking care of our two granddaughters. Happy Silly Tuesday everyone.

VACATION - We will be gone from April 26 - May 5. Internet access will be limited. I have posted photographs for while we are away.

They are very happy with the simplest of toys. Wonder why we still buy them the fancy ones :P

Animals and babies....they always go for the paper and cartons.
Kylie looks like a sweetheart. Hope Grandpa will be showing us more of her !

Very sweet. I can attest to that fact. Babies, young and old, want to play with the real stuff. Your title says it all. :)

A lovely and sweet little fellow! And a good way to get rid of all your unpaid bills, of course ;-) ;-) ;-) So you can say to the Taxman: "It wasn't me! He did it!" :-) Gotcha! ;-)

Beautiful baby Jack! I love the views of senior ... reinforce the image. I am struck by the child's position. A gesture of fun and flexibility own children! Later we can not do it! Well I can not do not dream! It's your grandson? Highly enjoyable. They grow so fast! A hug friend Jack!!! Muchos besos!

Such a sweet shot, I always chuckle when I see this, or when the kids get some fancy high tech toy , get all excited and please the person giving it, then take the toy out of the box and play with the box :)
