Brenna says, "Dad, can we have a real car?"
Just give the kids a Box! They don't need anything else this Christmas!
Mike and bought a freezer for extra food storage a couple of months ago. We saved the large box because we thought it would be fun for the kids to play with. The box was relegated to the basement (or dungeon as I call it) where it has been a huge hit with Colton, Brenna and Colton's friends. Just this week Colton and Mike used other boxes and made a car, a chimney for the house, a pantry and and other things. Each day the kids just want to play downstairs with the boxes. Nevermind that its cold, unfinished with no carpet and dirty. (now I am forcing Mike to straighten it up a bit down there with all the kids playing)
I have been rushing to get Christmas shopping done, but why should I? They have everthing they want in a bunch of boxes!
