As if we didn't have enough toys, this arrived yesterday....

This HUGE set of Geotrax were actually "hand me ups" from Aunt Jen. My super-shopper-sister was planning ahead for her little guys and purchased the set from a friend in our local triplet group (Hi Dayna!!). And, realizing that her guys are still a little young to really enjoy the toys, she immediately dropped them off at our house because she is the "Best Aunt in the World" and knew that Charlie would LOVE them...and would re-hand them back down in a year or so!! well do you think the "Best Aunt in the World" knows her youngest nephew?!?! I'm thinking he looks pretty happy. Yup, he was really, really happy when he got up at 6:45 this morning to "go play trains in the yiving room".

In case you were worried that poor Liam, Aidan and Connor are getting gipped out of a cool new toy on the day before their 2nd birthday, don't worry, I emptied out Charlie's room of all of our "Little People" stuff. My favorite nephews will soon be the proud owners of an entire community of Little People. And, believe it or not, we had so much Little People stuff that it didn't even fit in the huge rubbermaid boxes that the Geo Trax stuff came in. It is a lot of stuff....look out Birthday Boys!!!

It seems that everyone is quite happy with how this all worked out. Here is the scene after school which included a neighbor kid over on a playdate.

I just wonder if *I'll* ever get my "Yiving room" back. Tell me Dayna, what am I supposed to do with all of this stuff???

Glad we were finally able to get some 'hand-me-ups' to you :-). Also glad to see Charlie loves them so much!!!

I love the idea of "hand me ups"
