I think I have a picture of me doing this exact same thing in the exact same place, measuring myself to the gorilla when I was maybe 7 or 8. I'll have to have my parents dig it up for me.
Yesterday a package came in the mail from our cousin Leila (Justin's daughter) and her mom, Jane. They live in Washington and we got to see them twice last year, which was nice. Leila blends right in with my kids, with her platinum blonde hair and cute button nose. Anyway, the package felt like Christmas came a little early. Jane and Leila sent Emma a pink petticoat skirt and pink dance shirt. She is in heaven and would wear it all day if I let her.
Ben got a remote controlled car and two pair of Super Mario pjs. He LOVES Mario (it's really borderline obsession) so these pjs are perfect.
