South Carolina Snow by way of California…

img_0005Aunt Mary sent a huge package from California.  There were plenty of cool toys within.  They were but a passing fancy stacked up next to the non-toy toy, of course.  I panicked at first when I saw the packing peanuts.  My first instinct was to not let one stray puff out of the box, close it up and hide it in the garage as quickly as possible, before anyone got any bright ideas.  Then Ben said “it’s like snow!”.  And I remembered that I, once upon a time, encouraged mess-making as a living back when I taught preschool.  So, I told my inner neat freak to take a hike, and we played in the snow!

So, thanks Aunt Mary, for the California snow.

    Very fun! I’m the same way about those peanuts – ACK!!!! Quick, hide them before the boys start breaking them apart. But we’ve never had quite so many before either.
