Belated Christmas

Sometimes Christmas around here is a little spread out. We have the big day, of course, but we also had a few things come later in the mail. It's actually a little more fun that way. When the Christmas toys lose their charm a little, new ones show up in the mail!
We had a box from Auntie Verna and Uncle Randy (from Oklahoma. We visited them this summer, if you'll remember).
 You should have seen the boys with these 2 toys! Bingo cage for a boys obsessed with numbers? It was a perfect match! Then Jeremiah and Iron Man? Jeremiah's been doing the Iron Man thing for a while now and it doesn't show any signs of letting up.

We also got a card with some spending money from my Grandma and Grandpa.  This worked out really well since we can use it after Christmas when every single toy in creation is on sale. To continue with the Iron Man theme, Jeremiah found this beauty. It was the missing piece to his ensemble. Iron Man heart, check. Iron Man gloves, check. Iron Man mask? Check!
Joshua just used his to order a Monopoly game for his DS. We had the good idea (read: bad idea) of teaching Joshua how to play Monopoly one night. It was a pretty fun night but it was followed by day after day after day of, "Will you play Monopoly with me??" Unfortunately for Joshua, there's a pretty low limit to how much Monopoly we can handle. He's counting down the days waiting for it to arrive here at the house.
