How Much Fun Can You Have With A Box?

Happy New Year to All!
May your year be filled with Joy, Kindness and Thankfulness!
Starting off the new year with a dose of cuteness!

It is still amazing to see the fun children have with a cardboard box.
I gave them my huge box of Crayola crayons to play with.
They know how "Mimi" is about her big box of crayons.
I heard  "Lil Brainiac" say we have to keep those safe.
They are so adorable.

Hard at work
I heard them say they were making the Batmobile
but I'm not sure because the little one wants a train.

I apologize for our little barking dog in the video.
He was having fun too
but they can't work with him out nipping at their heels
I did want to show these two
and the fun they had that day with a cardboard box!

I'm still not sure what they made a Batmobile or train either way they had loads of fun!

Meanwhile "Mimi" is making some popcorn for them.
(yeah right) for them and me
I love my new popcorn popper!

Until next time
