|Pre-New Year's Eve fun at Disney's Magic Kingdom.|
|Riding the Monorail and taking in the scenery at Disney. The boys love riding the monorail.|
|Ready to take in the day at Disney. We had some Disney passes that we had to use up by the end of the year.|
|Little Bro having fun building a block tower.|
|Hanging out with G and getting ready to play with the Snap Circuits Kit and the book she won for us. Thanks so much to Waddlee-Ah-Chaa. This was so neat for my mom to win from you! She was so happy to have won this for the boys.|
We felt blessed to have G with us for the holidays, along with Papa and Uncle Brian too...
|Little Bro playing at the park. This is a very cool park and playground by the Tampa Museum of Art. We actually went to the museum with Uncle Brian but we could not take photos inside the museum. Had a great time though.|
|Big Bro climbing at the park.|
|Best brothers hanging out by the tree with their stuffed animals.|
|Lego Train built by Daddy and the boys over the holidays.|

|Thanks to Montessori for Everyone and Alison's Montessori Premium Quality Materials for this giveaway!|
|Some work extensions that we had from Montessori Print Shop that go with the geometric solids.|
|Big Bro hanging out after completing this work. This was his first day back as he was sick with the flu and still was not quite back to 100% just yet. Poor guy...he was pretty sick.|
|Our current read-aloud, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.This old book is from a consignment store, but the biography about Walt Disney is available through Amazon.com. The boys are really enjoying 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea as a read-aloud, although we had to tweak it a bit to make it more kid appropriate and less offensive in some places. Am actually surprised that Disney was able to make it into Disneyland and Walt Disney World attractions back in the day, although I vaguely remember going on the 20,000 Leagues attraction when I was a little girl at Walt Disney World...|
The boys really wanted to read this as well as Swiss Family Robinson after reading a biography about Walt Disney and learning how this book inspired some of the earliest Disney exhibits.
When we went to the Magic Kingdom for pre-New Year's, they had a great time climbing up in the Swiss Family Robinson treehouse.
Be sure to check out the two new widgets on my blog that feature the books we are using, including the book,
