Get Your Read On

While I have never recommended anything on my blog, I am still not quite sure anyone reads it, I thought I would go ahead and do it this once as this book has become our new favorite in the house and for good reason.
Behold 'Mrs. McGee's Coconut'....
Chris found this book for Shayden for Christmas and it has been a blast to read and reread...even up to four times a day.  This quirky lady, Mrs. McGee, has a great adventure with her coconut.  For you parents, its not too long and not too short with just enough comedic flavor to keep you reading again and again.  
I think my favorite part about this book was Shayden's fascination with coconuts and how excited he was when Chris surprised him by bringing one home from work one night...

After playing with it for an hour or so he insisted they open it up just like the monkey's in the book...and now we can officially cross off Shayden's list - coconut breaking, eating and drinking!  Well done Dad, well done.

If you don't have an Aunt Linda then you may not really be able to fully appreciate this post.  But Shayden and Quinton do have an Aunt Linda and she is the Queen of making all little kids dreams come true which is why this post is entitled T.M.A.L = That's My Aunt Linda...this Christmas she surprised Shayden and Quinton with an incredibly awesome Power Wheels.  That's right and its the Smart Car Power Wheels so of course they are also going to learn how to be eco friendly from the start!  :)
Here is Shayden rocking the car on the first decent day we had after Christmas. 
Thanks Aunt Linda - you rock our little guys world and we love it!
