Thank you to Playskool and SocialStars for partnering with us for today’s post. #PLAYSKOOLCREW
Pinterest mom alert! (Disclaimer, I’m on vacation this week…..I do not normally set up themed playdates in our backyard). Yes, Lydia is STILL obsessed with the Playskool Sesame Street Play All Day Elmo. Like, obsessed. She talks to Elmo, she dances with Elmo, she drinks tea with Elmo……thank goodness he responds. (That toddler mode Elmo has is awesome, he giggles and reacts to what she does…..and she LOVES it!)Earlier this week Lydia was having a rough morning (toddler issues)….so while she napped I decided to set up a little surprise for her……what better way to kick off the holiday season than gingerbread cookies with Elmo? Lydia doesn’t love sweets…..but gingerbread cookies? Her fav. And Elmo? Her fav. So, I set up our own little California Christmas in the backyard. You should have seen her face when she woke up….and I’m not gonna lie, I loved the whole house smelling like gingerbread while I baked!Looking for great holiday gift ideas for the kiddos in your life? Feel free to set up your own Christmas picnic with gingerbread cookies (link to my mom’s famous recipe HERE)……and Playskool Sesame Street Play All Day Elmo.
