This is one of my favorite things about the unseasonably warm last few days we've had:
Lunch time outside is such a wonderful thing. It's a nice change of pace for them, and lots less mess for me. If you are wondering, yes, Alena is in her pajamas. She's had a fever all day and is feeling rather yucky so I just left her in her pjs. When the regular February weather returns, we're all going to be in for a huge shock. Gabe and Mya had on flip flops today and Gabe was in shorts.
When we made the decision to get Gabe Legos for his birthday (and Christmas) I already knew what a mess they were going to be but what I didn't know is how much he would enjoy them. He plays with his Legos everyday often just building things from his imagination (mostly Star Wars ships) but sometimes he uses ideas from the manual like this little hospital that he built and was very proud of. In fact, it's still sitting up on our mantle safe from Alena's little fingers.
