Our Very Favourite Picture Books

Our Very Favourite Picture Books | Mama.Papa.Bubba.Wow.  As of today, we have 10 days left in Kuwait.  The end of our time here has crept up incredibly quickly, and with our calendar as full as it currently is, I know our last days are going to fly by faster than we can possibly imagine.

The good thing is, things are coming along.  Our Prado is sold and gone.  Miss G’s gorgeous little Pottery Barn Kids bedroom set is being picked up on Thursday.  We’ll pack up the remaining contents of our apartment and move it upstairs for the family who purchased it all as a set before we leave.  The stuff we’ll take home to Canada – clothes, select toys, a few keepsakes, and the majority of our books are packed for the most part – other than one basket of our very favourite picture books, which we’ll throw into a bin at the last minute.  {Toys we can live without, books we cannot.}
