shoo shoo

apparently raya sunshine now has an imaginary friend....
he is a goblin...she met him under a bridge...he now lives in her room...he is green.

his name is shoo shoo, and he fits in the palm of her hand.

i am a pancake

thanks to endless inspiration from a sweet little one, and constant nagging from a beloved sister in law, here it is...the one stop shop for all things raya.  the funny, the cute, and the somtimes exaggerated for dramatic effect.  just kidding.  

the story that started it all...

raya sunshine : "i'm gonna huff an a puff an a blow your house down!" (breathes deeply in and out).
"mommmmm, you need to fall over!"
mom:      "Oh, sorry" (falls over)
raya sunshine:  (standing over mom pointing finger) "i'm coming back for you later, PIIIIIIIG!"
