little pigs

Kate and Glory came to visit for a few days after Ellie was born. We had a fabulous time: we built forts, we sang songs, we played at the farm.

And then, we read the "Three Little Pigs" for the very first time.
We read it at the breakfast table.
We read it on the couch.
We read it in the blanket fort.

Sam recited the Big Bad Wolf's line: "I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll blow your house in!"
The three girls said the three little pigs' line "Not by the hair on our chinny-chin-chins!"

Then we switched roles.

Eventually, this mama was ready for a new activity.

So, we played with play-doh (lovingly made by Aunt Teenie for ND's Christmas present--that girl is so creative!)...

...and made little pigs.

And then Sam stuck play-doh up his nose...

....because no play-doh experience is complete without a little play-doh up the nose.

love the play dough piggies! Emma is, for some unknown reason to me, totally fascinated with pigs so a play-dough pig might be overdue around here....
