I believe today is the first Saturday that we have stayed home (oops ran to walgreens 10 mins)
|hard at work|
|lots of rolling and banging going on|
While the kiddos were highly occupied I started tackling the art cabinet. This is something that has needed to be done for awhile, but I open it up and close it again with this overwhelming feeling. I want it to look organized... you know the one where they have 50 of the same boxes with everything labeled and alphabetized. So I did the best I could with what I had and it turned out about as good as can be expected. However, while I was right smack in the middle with art stuff strewn all around me I hear this, "mommy can I come out with you?" In my head I am thinking "NO NO NO! What happened to the play dough time?" but my heart won out and I said sure put your shoes on.. (our art cabinets are in the garage) She comes out and her eyes get HUGE! I quickly said don't touch anything... lol yes while it's bad of me not to let her explore the art stuff I didn't need another mess to clean up just yet. So she sits and watches and questions everything I am doing.. Then I hear the door and "Mommy, are you and E out here" "yes babe" "Can I come out?" again in the head I am thinking "this is going to be ugly." but I say, " of course come on". So the three of us and our many art supplies are sitting in the garage area which really is about as big as a bathroom trying to get it organized. I guess I became boring pretty quick as they grab a box and the markers and start coloring.. Humm, "E what are ya'll making?" k answers "a boat" and they continue to make this boat. Also, because it was a sm box it became a boat for K and E got the laundry basket for her boat.
notice the bottles. Apparently people on the boats need telescopes. The bowls well that's the steering wheel. In the top pic you can hardly see it but that's a fish shaped bowl and E was moving it around K's boat before she decided she wanted her own.
After the boating and organizing was finished it was time for some more play dough fun, then dinner and family movie night of Rudolph the Red nose Reindeer. Also, at some point today E pulled another tooth so the tooth fairy gets to visit tonight.
