Christmas Gifts: A Sensory Experience

Should you be walking through our house and hear a whoosh and feel your hair stir, it's probably a member of the paper airplane fleet, being launched from the top of the stairs:
Should you walk into Mister and Sweetie's bedroom to check on them before you go to bed and you feel as though you suddenly walked on small, sharp rocks, it's probably stray lego pieces leftover from building these:
Should you go downstairs in the middle of the night to get a drink and see shiny, beady eyes, it's probably MaryLyn, waiting for school to start:
Should you smell cookies being baked one at a time for 2 hours, it's probably Sweetie making family home evening treats with her Easy Bake Oven:
Should you hear shouts of "Hit!", it may not actually be fighting children (for once), but a rousing game of battleship:
And should your ears twitch and you strangely feel as though you are being watched and your every move is being noted, it may be the two spies recording your actions on Mister's new clipboard:

1. Creative play 2. A long weekend 3. Nowhere to go and nothing pressing to do
