So everyone has their favorite toys, but I love the surprise favorites from Christmas. We got Norah a doll from Fisher Price called a Snap n Style doll. I remember that they came out when Hannah wasn't much older than Norah is now, and her friend Kieran had them. Kieran loved them, Hannah was uninterested. Which was fine. Norah is obsessed. She has literally played with it nearly ALL day today, and quite a bit of past days. In fact while we were out this evening she asked "Home? DOLLY!" Because apparently it shouldn't be left home alone for too long. Hannah has her favorites too, but they're not quite as noticeable. She still appreciates her old toys as well, so incorporates playing with the new and the old together. It's pretty sweet to see.
And age has no bounds when it comes to favorite new toys. Steven got Super Mario Brothers for the Wii, and literally no other game has gone into our console since he opened it on Christmas Eve. He played it as soon as he got home, and most free moments since.
I didn't get any new toys for Christmas, but that's more than ok. I really appreciate watching my family enjoy their things.
