Some of My New Toys

On Sunday, I decided to lay low for the day (I was exhausted) and try out a few of my birthday gifts. Aunt Jenn, Uncle Jon and Cousin Jack got me this awesome easel. It has a chalk board on one side and a magnetic white board on the other. Plus you can clip your paper to it and draw or paint. I was especially interested in the magnetic side. We have a stainless steel fridge and Mama says that magnets don't stick to it, no matter how many times you try. And trust me, I've tried. Here I am trying it out with some neat snowman magnets that Great-Grammy Mary got me...
I was so excited. OK, REALLY excited! I spent a good couple of hours playing with the magnets. I was "Noah the Focused" for sure! (Note from Mama: Seriously, he spent the entire morning sticking magnets on the the board, taking them off and sticking them back on...over and over and over. It was hilarious!)

I also got this cool Yo Gabba Gabba Dance Mat from Mimi and Pop-Pop. I was a bit apprehensive at first but then dove right in. As my buddy DJ Lance Rock would say, "Listening and dancing to music is awesome!"

So glad that you are enjoying the easel!

BTW, Jack has the same pajamas -- I definitely think there is a photo opportunity there.....

Magnets are irresistible, huh!?!? A budding scientist? :)

Just give Noah the Focused a few more minutes with that mat and he'll get it all figured out! Glad it is such fun -
