the Birthday Express catalog!
We always have 2 laying around somewhere (If there is just one, a massacre will occur!) That catalog will occupy my children for HOURS! The pictures get studied intently, the pages get turned gently, secrets are told, and plans are made all with the Birthday Express catalog in tow... This catalog gets more love than Thomas books (and those are a MUST in this house)! Tonight, as I was cooking dinner, I glanced down and there on the floor is Miss Madison intently looking and whispering with her beloved catalog!
