Baskets and Books

Baskets and Books

I love using baskets to corral books and toys and other collections. It seems like an easy—yet pretty—way to organize. But I never thought of using a basket to contain my twins! They thought of it for me … Girl twin loves to climb into anything, but today Boy beat her to it, and so she had to do what she could to get in on the fun. One day, they will be so big not even one of them will be able to fit into this basket (which usually contains Little People toys), so I had to capture the moment when both twins can fit into one basket!

Speaking of baskets, here are a few of our current reads from our library-book basket. We are enjoying old-fashioned fairy tales, especially Snow White and Rose Red. And we love Tomie de Paola; we have checked out about six of his books! Due to the insanely cold weather here, we have been spending A LOT of time curled up on the couch, cuddled under a blanket, reading books. But it isn’t too bad. Because of this forced indoor time, we have discovered some wonderful books that are quickly becoming favorites.

  3. “The Popcorn Book” is absolutely one of the greatest books I’ve picked up at the library. I usually go to the Tomie de Paola section and grab whatever I can find and we just loved this book! We also love “Jamie O’Rourke and the Pooka”. I wish I had a Pooka to pick up our mess! I finally added your site to my reader so now I’ll be keeping up with your entries better. I haven’t forgotten about coffee; I’m just trying to be un-swamped before we set a date. 🙂 Molly
