Twyla




This is Twyla, Avery's favorite toy. Twyla is a dollar bin item from Target we found a couple of years ago. She is named after the kitty in Barbie's The Twelve Dancing Princesses. Twyla goes everywhere Avery does. She is often seen dressed up in skirts, wrapped in tiny blankets, tucked in softly beside Avery's cheek at night, and at the breakfast table. If Avery does something wrong, it was Twyla and we sometimes have had to have a good 'talkin' to' with the naughty kitten. If there is one thing we have learned from Twyla, it's that we will save a bundle this Christmas-the best gifts are found in the dollar bins at Target.

  1. Twyla seems like a great friend. :) And so inexpensive! ;) I don't know why we ever spend money on kids' toys...it seems they're happiest with boxes, wooden spoons, keys, remote controls, etc. Pretty funny. :)

  2. Every little girl needs a best pet friend. And Twyla is so lucky to be an indoor kitty - otherwise Avery's dad would have run over it by now.

  3. Mom, don't confuse "running over" with shooting. Big difference.

  5. I keep having visions of Eve. She doesn't suck her thumb with it, does she? How adorable. What a sweet little girl.

  6. Cute! Belen has a little doggie and just like Avery's kitty, he goes everywhere she does!

  7. Jo, Twyla will only become an Eve if she gets flushed. I will be calling Justin for that one! =)

  9. He he that is so cute. I must agree with Christmas. What a great thing to know exactly where to shop and how much it's going to cost! I love the talkin's that have to take place too! You are such a great mom.

  10. "I'll have to put Twyla up on the fridge" was the best discipline tool while I stayed with your kids. Quick action followed to stave off putting her in her kennel.
