The Way I Feel

My expressive children, Alyssa and Hunter can read and act out these emotions for hours. Alyssa loves to figure out the names of the words that express her feelings.

Hunter just loves to make funny faces.

At Chuck E. Cheese the other night, he rode the car with Chuck E. that takes your picture. He held a silly face the entire ride just so his picture would be hilarious. What a clown!

All of my children love to make each other laugh. They practice these faces then show each other. They make up words then tell each other. They can play for hours talking a nonsense language.

Hunter does this with his friends at church also.

He loves to make cool noises too. When he sees a train he doesn't yell, "Train!" He makes the chugga chugga sound followed by a train whistle. Boys!

Faces, expressions, noises.

This book has taught us how to put words to our emotions.

During rain, snow, whatever weather keeps you inside, this book has given us hours and hours of enjoyment, creativity and expression.

Gotta love it!

Imaginations are great. Alex has a VERY vivid one...

Guess that's one reason he love Alyssa so much! They can pretend anything.
