Day 9. We were very fortunate to be able to surprise the children with a playground in our backyard this Chirstmas. They have already logged many hours playing out there together. Tyler and Lorelei normally play very well together, but this morning was a different story. They were driving me crazy arguing over ever little thing. The cold has kept us inside the past few days and I think they just had loads of pent up energy. I sent the two of them upstairs to get layered up and then sent them outside to play. After I got the baby situated with a snack, I went over to the window to peek and make sure Ty and Lorelei got everything sorted out between the two of them. I guess they did because the view was spectacular.
