Now, I consider myself a fairly creative person but this girl, she trumps me over and over!!! I knew it a couple of years ago when she wanted to do a tea party and ;made 3
dimensional dishes out of paper. But last night it was all I could do not to laugh at the conversation happening while she was building the fort. "Ethne, I'm going to give you an open concept bedroom. . . ." was my favorite comment I heard. My favorite design element was when she turned the chairs upside down on the table to use them as windows. LOVE IT!
Second favorite was when she turned the fabric chair on its back and got cushions and pillows to make stairs up to the coffee table which was the patio. Adorable.
Here are some pictures from the pool the on Friday after the kids got home from school. It's a fantastic little pool for the kids to splash around in. It's been in the 80's and 90's so there's been plenty of opportunity to go there and play. Also, I promised a picture of little Ethne's toothless smile. She's about to lose her other tooth so pretty soon that gap is going to double!
It was a little taste of Will's life since moving into this house when he was a teenager. YIKES!!! It wasn't fun but it was rewarding. I have to say though, after one afternoon I was ready to get a chainsaw and cut those pine trees down myself! I don't know how Memaw has done it more than 15 years!!!!! I'm a little concerned for her since she can only put 2 of these bags out with the trash a week!
: ) There's got to be a graveyard for 5" pine needles somewhere!
