Found Around the House

I'm sitting in the office right now, and there is a sheep staring at me from the corner of the room.

In the family room, a pink Care Bear, a gray cat, a Nemo, and a naked baby doll are resting on the carpet, some trapped under the toy shopping cart.

In the living room, Zoe from Sesame Street is sitting perfectly upright on a chair facing the stairs.

We share our house with dozens of stuffed animals and dolls. Even Joe chooses most nights between his huge new Shamu and his favorite --- Santa Claus.

Sometimes I come upon really cute set-ups that the girls arrange. Like this one:

That's Bethanie's little bunny. Tucked in nice and cozy on our bed. Bunny's blanket is Bethanie's nightgown, and the Batman pillow belongs to Joe.

Other times, I discover more disturbing scenes, and I wonder how my daughters would explain them:

Look closely. That's Polly Pocket completely submerged in a Moo cup on the bathroom counter. Appropriately, she is wearing her swimsuit. She was purchased along with a pet dolphin and a fountain set-up, so presumably she is used to being in the water. I'll probably never know if she was pulling a Houdini-like escape, treating her hair that changes color in the water, or only trying to startle me.

I just went to check so I could report on her current location. The Moo cup is empty. Polly is reclining, wide-eyed, on a soaking wet towel on the dining room table. That can't be good for the table. But it's way less freaky than hanging out under water.

Too funny! Especially with Brody, we have lots of those "pets" too as they call them. I won't tell him you have a sheep too!
Is Joe's Santa the one we have heard about probably in a blog post? I love the way they play with them and am thrilled Polly Pocket made it out of the water too!
