The boys love the fireplace so much. After our evening by the fireside we put them to bed, but when I got up the next morning I discovered they hadn't stayed there.
We haven't been able to do another fire since because of the Badger's work schedule right now, but Wednesday he'll be off the night shift and we'll be able to have some more. We're all greatly looking forward to it.
PS-- I'm having issues with my couch again. The boys tore the cushion fabric, I fixed it, they tore it again, I fixed it again.... the third time they tore it I couldn't fix it anymore so we flipped the cushions over. It's not pretty, but it's actually more comfortable to sit on this way.
