My boys’ obsession with trains was fueled by a duplo train engine set being added to their (already laughingly large) duplo stash. The boys have recently started building elevated trains, and their sisters like to add complicated cities around the train (and a slide to get down from the track, naturally). I love how they collaborate already!
I could easily pare down the toys in our house to about five things, and all manner of legos would make the cut (although if we get to the point that they no longer all fit in this box, friends are going to start getting previously loved duplos for birthdays).
Yes, our Christmas tree is still up.
Yes, some day winter will be over and my pictures will be well lit again.
