Tin soldiers in a Square Tin
For Becky B’s challenge
Pots and pan lids. Age old play toy for babies and toddlers. Charlie got into the drawer of lids, paused from the task and studied his reflection.
Nap Time. Laura texted me these photos of Charlie. I asked her if I could post and she said “sure” so guest blog #4 this week. His little friend doesn’t look very sleepy.
A few alterations to the original recipe but Wednesday night Laura guided Charlie and Maura in the holiday tradition of making Chex Mix. One site says “it’s been a party staple for 50 years”. I can tell you the original recipe was not on the boxes we had this year. Boo.
Baked at 250 F for an hour stirring every 15 minutes. What could be bad about it with all that melted butter and savory salt? Hmmmm
After the Mix making the two cousins played in Charlie’s new train tent. Crawling between the red and blue and back again. Then the added collapsible tunnel component.
A fun night.
Charlie said ” I love this game”

Charlie learns to make a tower all by himself. But that final block was a challenge.
You know the end result….
but we were laughing and I didn’t take a pic of the fallen blocks
Jack tried repeatedly to dislodge the nylon parachute guy from the birch tree in the backyard. Stuck! It was a stunning winter day. Gray and white clouds, blue sky and just below freezing temp. A day for the real camera and not the phone.
His dad was going to help himtry to retrieve it later after work but I wasn’t there to find out if they succeeded.
