My girls LOVE Goldilocks and the Three Bears right now. I didn't bring our regular books on our trip so they wanted to hear me tell them Goldilocks every night. One evening they got the idea in their heads to act out the story and lucky for them, awesome Uncle Noah and Aunt Allison are always willing to indulge. I don't think they knew what they were in for. Abbey wanted to go through the story about four or five times, each time playing different characters.





My favorite, favorite moment of the night was when Allison was playing Goldilocks and Hayden was baby bear. Hayden surprised me and really understood what was going on; when Allison fell asleep in her bed and Noah and Abbey took off to check on the porridge, Hayden went straight over to Allison and started crying, "Dats MY bed, Dats MY bed!" then tried to drag her away. I loved this night.

Noah played a very convincing Goldilocks when it was his turn.

These pictures are beautiful. Am I starting to sound like a broken record? Beautiful. Love the first and last ones, especially.

This is probably one of the most adorable posts--seriously. I love how Hayden has this "tough" stance as she's hauling that "bear" out of her bed. Adorable--just adorable.

Ha...did I say "bear," because I meant "Goldilocks." :) :)

This is so cute! Have you ever heard that song: "Once upon a time in a nursery rhyme there were 3 bears... one was a mama bear, one was a papa bear, one was a wee bear. They all went a walkin', in the woods they were talkin', and along came a little girl with long golden curly hair, and her name was goldie locks, and on the door she did knock...."???
So much fun.

I think so! I always throw in "Hey mama three bear, said the baby wee bear, SOMEONE HAS BROKEN MY CHAIR!" But I don't know why I say it or if I'm saying it right :) Is that part of it? I feel like I'm tapping into some obscure childhood memory.
