Toy Story - a photo essay

Some of Honour's friends dropped in for coffee yesterday...

While they were waiting for their drinks, a power struggle ensued over the improbable purple giraffe. Sophie and Honour went head to head..

Intimidated by Sophie's superior follicles...Honour moved in to tweak her nose.

Caleb tried to distract the girls from the power play by a manly display of bicep action:

Honour and Sophie were impressed with Caleb's press-ups; "He makes me go all weak at the knees," said Honour.
"That'll explain why you aren't crawling yet!" giggled Sophie (she was feeling quite weak in the knees herself about hunky Caleb).

"Ssssh" said Keira from across the room..."we can all hear you!"

Caleb smiled to himself, "I know, I'll impress them with my complicated engineering toy...that'll really seal the deal with the girls..."

Riley looked on from a distance, lost in his thoughts on his latest reading matter - Marcel Proust's philosophical work 'In search of lost time' - which he had been studying in the original French. Meanwhile, his mum was enjoying a slightly less challenging work - the Turtle Picture Book.

Keira was appalled to find that someone was trying to palm her off with the giant talking bear...when all she really wanted was the improbable purple giraffe.

"Use the power of your mind to summon the purple giraffe," her mother counselled her.

Just as Honour had finally managed to get her hands on the toy of choice...

she received a startling telepathic message from Keira; offering a trade - the talking bear in return for the improbable giraffe.

Fortunately, at just that moment, the help (houseboy Dave) arrived with the coffee:

"That drink makes my mouth go funny," said Sophie:

"It tastes nice in a bottle," said Honour, "Almost as good as Starbucks!"

And it all ended happily ever after.
