Packing Peanuts

We have next to no storage in our house, something I really wish we would have thought about when we decided to buy our home more then 4 years ago. We were tight on storage then, and now after being here for so long and having two toddlers, you tend to collect a lot of junk over the years. Last week I was working on cleaning our guest room a bit. The room itself isn't too cluttered, but the closet is just a disaster and sadly, there is no place else to put everything. Well, I decided to go through a couple boxes that have been stuck in there since we moved (again, more then 4 years ago) to see what was in them. It was silly to see two large boxes with very little in each one. I combined the two boxes and put one back in the closet. The other I took to the living room to show the girls. It was a big box full of packing peanuts. We threw them in the air. We danced through them. We crunched them. We tossed them. We laughed and had a great time. The girls helped us put all the peanuts back in the box so we could do it all over again. And again. And again.

I wish the pictures were not so dark, but at 7:30pm there is not very much light coming through our living room window that faces the east.
