Some Friends came to Visit....

The Willow came to visit our home this week.  When they arrived my daughter baked some yummy cookies with them and they enjoyed them.

Everyone was excited to see them and one little critter was especially interested. I think they were a little nervous but we immediatley reassured them that we would take care of them.

They had a ride on the snow man choo choo train ride.

During the week, we took them to the "Happiest Place on Earth."  There was a very special ride dedicated to "The Willows."  They had a blast! Toad especially loved driving the car through the ride.

At the end of the week, we had a special dinner prepared for them.  You could call it an early Christmas dinner.  It was delicious! They had a blast... We loved having them... 

What a blessed week!
Have a Merry Christmas!


  1. Wow! Kim, I LOVE it that they got to sit in Mr. Toad's car at Disneyland! That's SO cute! The kitty is lovely and riding in the train must have been VERY exciting for them. Wow, they have been to the sweetest homes in North America, I think! Your daughter is adorable! Please tell her THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for baking cookies for Ratty, Mole, and Toad! What a fantastic post! When you are ready to send them on, stamp the passport however you wish, color a picture in the book and write a little note, and put a tiny gift in the envelope on the last page. They go to Frances and then she'll send them on to Mags in Ireland. Oh, SUCH a Grand Tour! (BIG HUG!)

  2. Amazing! I hope they enjoy their dinner!

  3. So adorable! Have a Merry Christmas too.

  4. Woohoo they're coming to this part of the world soon! Hope that book's filling up with scribbles and sketches and wonderful words. x

  5. How fun! It makes me think of the hours I spent reading out loud to my children during our 16 years of homeschooling. Thank you for sharing your adventures!
