Aunt Jane does it again

My Aunt Jane has this incredible knack for buying the coolest presents ever invented. Guess what Scarlett got from Aunt Jane yesterday? A Rapunzel dress-up dress. Words cannot describe how much she loves this dress. It's perfect for spinning. And if there happens to be a mirror nearby, all the better. Spinning is better to do in front of a mirror. This is a serious dress-up dress. In fact, I'm quite certain Scarlett will be wearing this dress to the prom. It is "beeeeau-tiful" (says she). Despite us owning the book, Scarlett didn't know about Rapunzel yet. I pulled her yet-to-be-discovered Rapunzel book off of her bookshelf (because, of course, we have about a million books that Scarlett has yet to discover because she wants to read the same book every. single. night.) and Nan got to reading. And after the book was over, I had to spend the rest of the night pretending that I was cutting off all of Scarlett's hair. And Holden put on his best Sunday bonnet just for the occasion. Scarlett wasn't the only one who got a cool present. Holden got a big-boy car ramp. The reason I know this is a big-boy car ramp is because the second I put it in front of Holden, he started sitting like a big boy. Observe. He loves this ramp. In fact, this is the first time he's really shown much interest in cars. When Holden normally plays with toys, he just follows Scarlett around and picks up whatever toy she's dropped - And it's usually a princess (much to Joe's dismay). But he just stands at this toy, and stands...and kneels, and then stands again...playing for a looooong time. And, all of a sudden, someone is following HIM around and playing with whatever car he's dropped.
Thank you so very much for the awesome presents, Aunt Jane! The kids LOVE them!
