Good Night Moon (Margaret Wise Brown)= Put them down for a nap

The Napping House (Don & Audrey Wood)= Count the people, Sing them lullabyes or try some other good ideas here for this book

Three Little Kittens (Paul Galdone)= Color Mitten Pictures (design them), Try to pick things up with mittens, get them dirty, wash them, and hang them up to dry (eat pie after!)

Alrighty Cinda, you have to go see Star Trek. Yes the new Trekky's are easy on the eyes and there some good stuff. i really liked it. I'm sure Tony would do some extra laundry around the house if you suggested going to this movie with him.
