Never were there such devoted sisters

It's a rare thing for our girls to play nicely together, so today you get some pictures of them playing nicely apart.

First up is Rachel with her Littlest Pet Shop train:

She insisted that I take a picture of her making train arms and singing "chug-a-chug-a-choo-choo!"

Here's Miriam playing Little House on the Prairie. We just started reading Little Town On the Prairie, so all the shape blocks is the town and the barn she's setting up in the back is the Ingalls' homestead.

My children are excellent posers and when they notice I am taking pictures of them they enjoy posing so that I will take another "better" picture.

Tonight Miriam ate dinner on the couch. Everyone else had homemade chicken noodle soup (yes, really, Grandpa Reid—like, I chopped celery and carrots and boiled them in chicken broth, cooked some chicken, cubed it, and threw it in the pot with some noodles) at the dinner table. And it was delicious (which is funny because last night we had pumpkin chili and it was also delicious—at some point this streak of mine (two times in a row is a streak, right?) is going to end and we're going to wind up having something really nasty for dinner).

Within a few seconds of each other, both the girls demanded that I "look at this!"

Rachel had put false teeth made of oyster crackers in:

Miriam had put false teeth made of raisins in:

I don't know how they synchronized their false teeth idea so perfectly. It would have been understandable if they had been sitting at the table together, watching each other, or talking about it, but they hadn't been. They couldn't see each other and, to my knowledge, hadn't talked about it beforehand. Somehow they just got the same idea at the same time.
