Friday afternoon and Fancy Nancy

My little grandsons are really into dinosaur books...and all non-fiction: penguins, bats, bees, the Arctic, and really just about anything that lives or breathes! BUT, the one exception to their reading rule is Fancy Nancy written by Jane O'Connor and illustrated by Robin Preiss Glasser.

We have all the Fancy Nancy books and even have the doll. The books and the doll enjoy a prominent seat in the dining room here at White Picket Gardens. So, yesterday afternoon, we had a little dress up and posing while eating chocolate graham crackers.

We also have been sending Fancy Nancy to Portland, Oregon to little Holly. I think by Thanksgiving, I can get them all to pose for a picture.

Sundaes, anyone?
