I Am Thankful For...Musical Christmas Toys

Remember my post about Musical Card Land? Well, if my boys get that excited over musical greeting cards, just imagine the sheer delight they experienced when the musical Christmas toys made their appearance today.

All in all I think we probably have enough of these things to open up our own musical Christmas toy store. But that's ok because the boys absolutely love them, and they spent hours today just playing them over and over and over and over.

Sure my ears are tired of hearing the barking dogs version of "Jingle Bells" and Elmo's version of "The Twelve Days of Christmas." And you should hear it when they're all going at the same time. But it's a welcome change from the normal yelling and fighting that typically goes on. I'm sure I won't feel that way in a few days, but for now I'll take it.

So today I am thankful for musical Christmas toys, for helping parents finish holiday decorating by keeping kids entertained, one jingle bark at a time.

May I present to you...hours of entertainment for young children: Two Elmos, a bear that reads "The Night Before Christmas," a singing snowman and dog, kissing dogs with tails that jingle, a dog that sings "Jingle Bells," a spinning Christmas tree that plays "O Christmas Tree," and a partridge in a pear tree (ok, there's not really a partridge, but it seemed appropriate)

 *In the spirit of Thanksgiving, "I Am Thankful For..." is a blog challenge I have decided to do during the month of November. Each day I will pick one thing that I am thankful for and blog about it. Obviously I am extremely thankful for the many things in my life I am blessed with, such as a wonderful family, my health and my family's health, great friends, a roof over my head, food on the table, and more. But this series is about all the other day-to-day things that I sometimes take for granted and that make life just a little bit better -- you know, the little things.
