We've hit that lovely time in Minnesota when you have to hunker down inside. The girls have found new interests and thank goodness they have been playing together fairly nicely. While they still fight over toys, they mostly laugh, work together, and play strange games where Pip is the 4-year old mom and Nina is her baby kitty.

Randomly, we watched an episode of MasterChef Junior and it has become the new family favorite. It's funny to hear their reactions and we've caught Pip yelling "Yes, Chef" on a few occasions. Nina's new educational interest is learning American Sign Language. She likes watching youtube videos and practicing new words. Nina's other interest is Calvin and Hobbes. While she mostly likes the panels involving slapstick, she gets the general idea of Calvin's silliness and trouble-making. This giant snow octopus reminded us of a Calvin creation.
The girls have started taking gymnastics and are excited to be in the same class. They listened pretty well and are really looking forward to going back next week. Other indoor activities include going to the zoo, the library, and meeting their newest pseudo-cousin, Clara, last weekend. She's adorable!
