The Schwartz's vs Sarah's Super Imagination

Sarah is so much fun to play with and she just keeps getting better and better.  She's always had a great imagination but as her vocab has taken off it seems she's better able to articulate her play scenarios.  Recently when we were playing princesses she gave me Belle and Jasmine while she played with Ariel 1 and Ariel 2.  They started with their normal conversation, "I like your shoes.  I like your dress.  You got hair.  I got red hair."  Then she threw one of the dresses not being worn in the middle of them and said, "Oh no!  Snakes!  Run!  Come on follow me!" And her 2 Ariels took off running with Belle and Jasmine close behind.  Finally we made it to the lid which she declared was a waterfall and we were safe from the snakes.  The princesses of course went for a splash in the waterfall complete with Sarah provided sound effects.  

Sarah has started playing Super Sarah!  It's tons of fun.  She grabs blankets for everyone to tie around their necks.   And as I tie them on she announces, "Super Sarah! Super Cody!  Super Mommy!"

So far our documented powers include flying, spinning, dancing, and jumping.

I haven't started collecting dress up items for Sarah yet so this new super hero blanket cape play is the extent of our dressing up.  But I kind of like it that way.  It doesn't take more than a few household items and an imagination for Sarah to have a great time.
