This was a piece that I couldn't bear to use as wrapping paper, so I hung it up. I would ask Thomas which sound came next - and he wrote it. So sweet. All the letters are there ... just not in straight lines and with some D's in between. ;)
Monkey was an excellent helper decorating the cupcakes. Thomas had come up with the idea that Monkey should have a LEGO cake - so we made cupcakes (I so love birthday cupcakes now - and way easy to sneak a few gluten-free ones in there) with LEGO fruit snacks on top. Monkey built towers with them, while I played with sprinkles.
A game (or two or five) of Hullaballoo helped pass the time until the grandparents arrived for a yummy dinner.
