Ben works the tablet while Neil relaxes with the paper.

As part of her annual holiday decorating, my mother sets out an elaborate miniature Bethlehem -- little buildings and tents and manger, etc. It's quite the spread. This year Ben helped, and they both had a great time "setting up Israel" on an empty bookcase shelf. When we got back home, he recreated this in Legos on a shelf in his bedroom. Complete with Beatles figurines.
Ben has really gotten into miniatures and ... yes, dollhouses ... lately. I think I'll devote another post to the question of gender-typed toys, and the malleability of those boundaries. Something to ponder in the meantime.
