    One of mine loves junk modelling and will go through the recycling cardboard bin, at the drop a hat. Everything has to be sticky taped together. I love seeing her do it, but I’m not very good at finding a way to store all of them. We did come to a compromise, where I would photograph the model, she’d keep it for a while and then it would be recycled.

    Looks like you all had a wonderful holiday.

    Hi Cheryl… Always nice to hear from you!!! Nearly all my kids can’t go past the recycling without foraging it!!! And then they stick it nooks and crannies around the house hoping I won’t notice and toss it!!! We have a rule – you may keep one working model… the rest go into the recycling bag on Fridays… the next week they choose again… Have a fabulous week!!!

    I love the not-“wink” picture. Isn’t she just the cutest?
    I’m so glad the hoods got all their excitement out of their system – just you wait until next year….
