Invasion of the Eyeball Snatchers

Gloria took Eli 4.11 to a wonderful local toy store called Terra Toys yesterday. It's an Austin institution--a crazy, oddball toy store with all kinds of eccentric things you can't find anywhere else.

Eli picked out an Arctic archaelogy dig set with his toy budget money (more on the toy budget later). They also got a bag of those big Halloween eyes--you know, giant eyeballs, red streaks, about the size of a plum.

We were watching Tom and Jerry last night, and Eli got up and went to the bathroom. When he came out, he was holding a giant eyeball over each eye. Then, in his best booming voice, he said "Do not be afraid. My eyeballs come in peace!"
