Wood Burning Fireplace

Our first use of our wood burning fireplace.Our house came with a nice wood burning fireplace located in our family room. We never had one anywhere, nor had any experience with one, so weren’t really sure how to use it properly.

Family room fireplace and look into our dining room.However, yesterday, we finally had our chimney cleaned and inspected by a local company and Alёna — while I was at work — had asked them a number of questions on how to properly and safely use it.

Warmth in November.We decided not to wait long and took the chance to light a fire today and are enjoying its warmth on this cool November night.

Imaginarium Railroad

Wooden trains.When we were considering what to buy for Arosha for his 3rd birthday we were thinking of a bicycle. However after trying some at Toys “R” Us we understood that it probably was not right for us this year. The fact that Arosha can’t really handle it yet is normal — he needs a bicycle to learn to ride a bicycle. The problem was that they were all quite heavy and it will be hard for Alena to manage Arosha, bicycle and a brand new baby during their walks. We put it off until the next spring.

Wooden railroad sets.Instead we decided to get him a pair of railroad sets. He really likes building stuff out of his LEGO bricks, so we figured this would be a different type of sets that he could build. We spent quite a bit of time trying to pick out the brand that we wanted to go with and then after we did that we tried to pick 2 sets out of 3 available. In a funny coincidence Ignat, Vika and Alisa presented Arosha with the 3rd set on his birthday. Instead of setting them up as separate sets we re-imagined it and connected all of them into a big massive system.

I decided to take a couple of pictures before we dismantle it to get the carpet vacuumed to commemorate our grand construction. Not sure what it’s going to look like when we build it the next time.
