Did anyone see the facebook postings on Dinovember? I had a few friends post it (Thank you Rachel and Tina) and I was quite taken with the idea. These parents place dinosaurs in different poses in the house every night, mostly getting up to mischief.
After seeing it, I started to get obsessed about it.
It was just the kind of thing my father would have done for me when I was a kid. He often would make the extra effort in order to surprise and delight us. I told you about his elaborate tooth fairy tales before. But it didn’t end there. He did so many wonderful things when we were kids. I remember once I woke up in the tent I asked for my birthday!
So, Dinovember was just my alley.
But we put a twist on it.
We Thanksgivikahed Dinovember.
The first morning Jack found them and we started the legend of the mischievous Hanukkah bears. We didn’t count on the fact that they boys would each want one. And that they would each want to sleep with them to keep them out of trouble for the next night. We had to wait until they fell asleep and wrangle them away from them.
Here is a close up of their Thanksgiving get-ups…
Those are Hanukkah bears from Build a Bear Workshop. It’s actually very hard to find a Hanukkah mascot. A bubbeleh on the shelf, if you will.
On day 6, they partied with the original toys that come to life when no one is around…
Finally the bears were caught by Jack’s Switch & Go Dinos, four of which he received for Hanukkah. Other Hanukkah toys that Ben got, like superheros, The Buzz Lightyear Monster and Splinter, helped them.Pin It
