Grandpa sent the girls an F.A.O. Schwarz rocking horse and it arrived today!
Catherine was not quite ready to commit herself to climbing on this strange beast, but she pronounced it a "nice pony" and "good" and made the sign for grandfather, so I think she gets it!! She also said the plastic bridle was "glasses". So I guess it's a nearsighted pony.
Elisabeth - well, Elisabeth wasn't having such a good morning. She sat down and cried. But I'm sure she'll like it later.
We just have to think up a name for it now.
Then, naturally, both girls proceeded to play at great length with the BOX it came in.
