Trinkets and treasures; Disney Emoji review

I don’t know if it’s a little girl thing, but my two girls cannot get enough of small collectible trinkets.

The toys are taking over

There is no escaping it. The toys. They are slowly taking over our house.

It seems no matter how much moving around, or ‘clearing out’ we do, the problem is growing. Probably compounded by our enormous extended family, addition of a second daughter, and two birthdays and Christmas in the last 5 months. more “The toys are taking over”
