Vacuum Canister Contents Search

Did you ever suck up a tiny toy piece when you ran the vacuum?

I carefully emptied the contents of the canister (is there any pile left in my red rug?) into a garbage bag, poked around with some pointy scissors. Not a fruitful search.

I did NOT find the little blue Playmobil nozzle end that fit the plastic firefighter’s hose.

I did find a wee drumstick, a knitting marker and a Lego light piece. That was all I could come up with. I should have put a penny down so you could see how small they were. Oh, I found a dusty Cheerio and a length of dental floss, too. Just dirt and dust and fibers. Yuck.

Chex Mix Making

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”
