Train Madness

Ok. So maybe we (read I) went a little crazy with a train set for Vv for Christmas. I went to We B Toys and Shit several times and just couldn't bring myself to buy one of these Geotrax sets for Vv until we were at Fred Meyer one day and she shouted out "Train, Daddy! Train, train," referring to one of the lighted roof-top type flashing light train cut-outs. Ok, maybe a train set isn't a bad idea for a girl after all. Then, middle sis-in-law Bobbie told Jamie how much fun her boys have with their set and the deal was sealed.

Sure enough, come Christmas morning all of us were gathered round the train track makin' it go (and with the three trains and controllers there were enough for everybody to eventually get a turn).

All of the girls (I'm talkin' 'bout the big ones, Willis) even got into the act by the end of the day.

So, today, sometime before noon, I get a nearly frantic phone call from Jamie asking me to get more track. The (big) girls can't figure out how we had it layed out and neither Matt nor I were at home. (heavy sigh) I didn't "rush right home" and solve the problem but I did add a fews more pieces fresh from the store on my way home.
