This is what Miles and Cameron are doing as I type. I froze one car, one dinosaur, one Batman and one Power Ranger in ice last week and they are trying to free them. They have two straws (for blowing hot air (which, consequently, they're full of)), a spray bottle, two plastic knives, a plastic hammer and a toy mallet. They've been hard at work for the last 20 minutes and it's looking like it will be awhile yet. So if you need a good way to get the kids outside for a half hour to 45 minutes, try this! They're having a blast!
So, uh, we got a little bored yesterday. I had boxes of Sophie's clothes all over her room getting them sorted and labeled to put in the closet/attic (she's gone through at least 6 boxes of clothes in her short 7.5 months on earth!) and I came across this little ducky costume I bought after Halloween last year. I found it at the Children's Place outlet for $2.99! Halloween can't come soon enough! She's hi-freakin'-larious in this outfit! The boys had to take a turn as well.
