Out With the Old

A few posts ago I shared a picture of Tegan's new stroller. This kitchen is another favorite. I adore this kitchen! Tegan got a few beautiful sets of wooden food, a lovely tea set made from recycled plastic, and some pots, pans, and utensils. Which meant that the kitchen was fully stocked, and we could finally get rid of the big, yucky and cracked plastic bin that was filled to overflowing with old plastic food... food that was lovingly played with for a long time, and that was worn, dirty, and otherwise cast aside. Everett went through it this weekend, picked out the few pieces he wanted to hang onto, and the rest found a new home in our recycle bin, plastic tub and all. Everything they're left with fits wonderfully in the kitchen, with plenty of room to organize it however they'd like. I love it.

Few things give me such a natural high as getting rid of any sort of clutter! That one simple act has inspired me once again to continue the progress in the rest of the house.

In other current news, I snapped a couple of pictures of Spencer working on one of the cases in his new forensics lab. Very cool. I love the way their heads are bent together here, reading about the suspects.

And this is Paxton holding Leonard...

I am in love with this snake, and can't believe we didn't get one sooner.

You know what else is so awesome about that kitchen is that it's so big. Lots of room for fun stuff, and for more than one kiddo to play at it!

That forensic kit looks awesome!

And I can't get over how tiny the snake is. Just a little guy! They are so much fun, especially when they are small. How big will he get?

Oh yeah, and *YAY* for de-cluttering. It always feels like a part of life has been de-cluttered just by de-cluttering some space. :)

Isn't he cute?? He'll get as long as a ball python, anywhere up to around 5 feet, but he'll stay slim, just a few pounds. :)
