The Bubble

Or the blob. Or the really weird, yucky egg.

Actually, once we figured out the premise behind the thing, it's kind of cool in a strange way. (You throw it at the wall and it splats into a fried egg of sorts.)

Santa Claus brought Anna this little stretchy "thing" that she had fallen in love with at the store a few weeks before Christmas. It was in her stocking Christmas morning, and fast became one of her favorite little toys to carry around. And stretch. And throw.

And stick to the wall.

Anna has proudly dubbed it her "bubble" as it, of course, looks like a bubble. Perfectly logical. Gotta love the $1 bins of silly novelty toys at stores. Who knew?

Dan and I are making bets on how long this little toy will last, though, while waiting for the leak to spring. But fun memories!

Those dollar bin toys are great! They're cheap enough that if your kids don't like them you don't care. It's funny how kids often like those cheap toys better than the expensive ones though.

That's so odd looking! Ezra gave Scarlett a gooey octapus for Christmas. It only lasted about a month, but it was sure well-loved in that month. Sorry, random tangent-the egg just reminded me of our recently deceased eight-legged friend.

What a fun toy! It looks like Santa picked out a great toy to go in the stocking! Totally worth a $1.

I love seeing your cute family. Congrats on the new little one. David is adorable and I am sure that his sister is very loving:)
