This past Christmas, the family had lots of fun thanks to "Speedy Shapes". What is "Speedy Shapes", you may ask. It is the name of the game that I chose for Tom's Christmas gift. I was so excited to find this educational, finely constructed game made in Europe! Well, once I saw that Auntie Susan had chosen a fun Spiderman toy, we laughed and suspected that "Speedy Shapes" just might be tossed to the back of the tree.
So here is Tom opening Auntie Susan's gift,
We were bugging Andrew for updates on when "Speedy Shapes" would make it's big debut and become the hit of Christmas after all. Well, after two days we got a message saying that "Speedy Shapes" was finally getting the respect it deserved.
Here's the game set up. It's looking good!
Alas, "Speedy Shapes" was conquered!
So, back to the birthday gift selection. Uncle Rob was in charge. He did have an unfair advantage though. He and Andrew text each other, so he got some help that I didn't get while choosing "Speedy Shapes". ;) Rob made some choices and wanted to send Andrew a photo. It was my job to hold the selections and wear a mask because I'm just cool that way. ;)
In the end, selections were made. I learned the difference between The Justice League and The Avengers. I always thought they were all just super heros. And that is how you have a really exciting Friday night date night at Target.
For the record, I added some clothes to Tom's birthday package but they aren't even going to be wrapped as a gift. Apparently, getting clothes as gifts when you are a little boy, pretty much ranks up there with getting educational games. Who knew? Little girls love getting clothes! LOL
