So THAT'S what's in the box!

These two gigantic boxes arrived next door in late November. I can't remember anyone ever asking what was in them, but all of the kids played with these boxes for a month. They arranged them into different positions, decorated them, made them into forts, and had a lovely time with them.

So last week, before Grandma Inese and Grandpa Don left for their island, we went over to visit. Grandpa told the girls to go get the giant boxes and bring them into the bistro (my parents have a sort of sitting room/dining room that we call the bistro). The girls were intrigued and promptly pushed the boxes our way. They could not believe it when they were told that the boxes contained their Christmas gifts from Grandma and Grandpa!

Grandpa had to lend a hand to get through the packing tape safely to reveal...

...beanbag chairs! They match the girls' bed sheets and have their names embroidered on them! Oh, the joy!

They were clearly an immediate hit. We enjoy a show on them, haul them upstairs to read books on, pretend they are boats, lounge on them while chatting...They are even better than the boxes they came in! Thank you, Grandpa and Grandma!
