Henry and Elliot Love:

Christmas!
Frosty the Snowman, as of today. The 50 times prior they didn't give a rip.
Jingle Bells, especially Elliot
X-mas lights, of course.
"The Christmas Tree Song," which is my made up rendition of Oh Christmas Tree.
Presents, books specifically. I think the book part has to do with thus far they have each only opened one present. Guess what they were?
Wooden Spoons
mini whisks
"warm chocolate", as opposed to hot chocolate, of course.
Yo Gabba Gabba
Mickey Mouse Clubhouse
Cement Mixers (Henry)
Diggers and all other construction equipment(Elliot).
The color blue (Henry)
Buzz Lightyear (Henry)
drawing with crayons or markers (Elliot)
Reading books (Henry more so)
wall*e (Elliot)
Mama's Bracelet (Elliot, past 24 hours only)
"Going to work. Going to meetings" (both)
climbing
jumping
making mischief (both, oh lord)

What's really interesting is that Henry is the ringleader for deciding whose is whose. He laid claim to the blue cups, assigning Elliot the green. It took Elliot about 6 weeks to go along with, and insist upon using the green cups. Henry fell in love with a "Mixer Puzzle" and deemed all others inferior (and therefore Elliot's). For the most part Elliot is easy going and flows right along with whatever. However, this past week they are obsessed with wooden spoons. Gone are the days when they would share or trade; we are in full battle mode over these spoons. Some replacements are acceptable occasionally. Occasionally mama removes all spoons from sight!

I bet you are going to buy more wooden spoons for their stockings, right? Why is it that the smallest and most inexpensive toys are kids favorites?!? Let's get together next week....

Oh, I want to see a photo of spoon battle!

I love this list, it really sums up a lovely image. Thank you for sharing.
