But still remaining is a Shrine to Benjamin (our grandson from Switzerland)---we cannot bear to put away. It took sooo long to create, hammer and nail, sew and stitch, blanket and pillow, and even two lamb skins from CostCo (bought years ago).
We had three baskets of toys, some with toys left over from our gr-daughters who are now in double-digits, additional toys we bought with "Oh, he'll love this!"

So it is that, now, February 29, a Leap Year, we are packing it all up.
