For Christmas this year Catcher asked for a remote control car, a remote control boat and a remote control helicopter. Santa brought him the helicopter. This afternoon the guys flew it around the living room when Catcher declared, "This is way cooler than a real helicopter." I haven't been in a real helicopter, but he might be right. This tiny thing is pretty fascinating and can take quite a beating considering Alex and Catcher flew it into the chandelier once and the ceiling fan twice (and also into the wall a few times plus several crash "landings").
I think the girls thought it was pretty cool, too. They crept out of their bedroom and left some intense dramatic dollhouse play behind to get a look at the action.
