New Neighbors

I can't wait for Savy to see the surprise I set up for her this morning. When I was little, the Smurfs were very popular. I didn't know they even still showed those cartoons until a few weeks ago...Savy found an episode on Cartoon Network and really liked it.

When I was a kid, I had the little plastic Smurf figures, but there were no other accessories or anything. I made this little "Smurf village" at the side of our house in Bruce, but I always wished for the mushroom houses they lived in. Well, now you can buy the mushroom houses along with the Smurfs. I picked up Papa Smurf and his house last night, intending to set it up in the flower garden outside and let Savy find it on her own. After setting it up, I decided she needed a village, so I got up early this morning, went to Wal-Mart, and got Smurfette with her house. I also got a Handy Smurf (just the figure). I set them up just outside the dining room window, behind some rocks in the flower bed.

This is the view from our dinig room window...probably where she'll see it first.

I didn't mention it to her...I thought it would be more fun and "magical" if she just found it this morning and thought that the Smurfs moved in overnight. I can't wait to see her reaction!

I can't believe the Smurf's are making a comeback. They were one of my favorites when I was little. Can't wait to hear/see what she thinks about the Smurf village!

How adorable.. I loved the Smurf's when I was young too.. Had a smurf notebook, I loved and would NOT write in it!! I guess I wanted to save it...
