With a tiny bit of adult assistance they both have matching “box houses” and they are serious about them. I can not say the R word (Recycle) around them or their entire world falls apart.

Did you ever build a box house as a kid? Or a fort maybe? I miss the days when I actually fit inside of them.

A portrait of my child once a week, every week in 2014. To see the whole series, click here.

That looks like a blast! I remember making blanket forts when I was little and it was SO MUCH FUN!

Awww i remember when I was a kid making these they are so cute

I love that kids find pleasures in the simplest things. For my oldest daughter’s first Christmas, I wrapped up an empty box and let’s just say, I didn’t regret it. She had a ball.

Hahaha.. this is really cute. I have never build one for myself but I have pinned a few so that I can build two for my little boy and girl.

I love seeing your blog and looking at your pictures! They are so beautiful!

That time lapse one is great. These pictures are so cute! I love it

My mom used to save big boxes for us to play in too! I remember making a train from a refrigerator box and some others. So fun. I am going to make some houses like this for my daughter. She would love it.

Those boys, they melt my heart! Love the GIF!

I had a fort! me and my brother! my mom bought us a “playhouse” because she didn’t want uscoveing the dinning room table in blankets anymore. that play house was a tent of sorts and we played with it till it fell apart. We still wouldn’t let her throw it away LOL so she cut it up and made room decoration of it! so I feel your boys! NO R word!!! 🙂

this is such a great series and I LOVE your photos. Oh, and the gif, of course. My brother and I liked to make pretend tvs out of boxes and then play tv shows for each other.

super cute! I did this as a kid and always found it so fun for my imagination 🙂

Haha–I’m always amazed at how entertaining boxes can be. My cousin’s daughter recently turned one into a slide.

I love how kids, even with all of their toys, get so much enjoyment from a cardboard box. 🙂

My daughter loves playing with boxes. Everytime we have a box it becomes a house or some other type of building.

LOVE the gif you capture moments amazingly!

I love your pictures so much! My boys always loved playing with boxes more than toys anyways. But making the little plastic wrap window was such a great idea! 😀 Thanks for sharing these beautiful pictures!

Thank you! The window was actually recycled from some packaging materials that were in the box. 🙂

I just love your photos. And I especially love how something as simple as a box was entertaining for them

Isn’t it amazing how a box can keep a kid entertained for hours?! Pay all that money for toys and they want to play with a box.

I loved making forts and other creations with boxes when I was a kid. The pictures are adorable. I loved the video, too!

I swear Soren is taller. Is he taller? Did he grow in that month I’ve been gone? I miss those lil dudes! I’ll see you soon, buddies!

Yes he did, you should come home now. 😉

I remember doing that when I was a little one. The simple things can be so much fun!!

kids are the best teachers of creativity and fun! love the gifs!

Cardboard boxes are so much fun. They are my youngest brothers favorite 🙂

I love the gif! I seriously love how creative you are, and how you are capturing all of these in-between moments every day. Your kiddos are lucky to have such a present and loving mom.

Thank you so much. 🙂

how fun! Love your photography!

Box houses were great fun when I was a child. My cats love them too.

Our cat does too! When she’s not just laying around or eating, hahaha.

how fun! my brothers and I used to build all kinds of houses and forts…great memories 😉

We built so many forts too ! 🙂
