So after too many months of being frustrated because my pictures just wouldn't load when I did actually sit down to write a post, I decided to try again. I had to resize all the pics I am using first, but that extra step did the trick. Hope you enjoy a little glimpse into our crazy life with two very imaginative little girls.
Oh, and as you will notice, about a month after my last post (Maya's haircut) Katie decided she needed a change too. She grabbed a fistfull of hair on the side of her head and CHOP CHOP she made herself a duster. So she is now sporting a pixie cut.
So the girls every once in a while decide to go to the beach...aka our bedroom. They flip the blankets on the floor and voila - a beach. Two days ago the girls played nicely together "at the beach" literally all day!!
Then mid morning the snack shop opened and the girls had some fruit & cookies from mommy's kitchen
After closer investigation I discovered that they had climbed onto the counter in the kitchen, found social tea cookies and from the top shelf of my top cupboards they snatched a bag of marshmallows. Since "they couldn't find chocolate that was flat" they decided to make their smores without the chocolate. They were so creative, imaginative and cooperating with each other that I just couldn't give them trouble for getting into my goodie cupboard.
Next time I checked on them they took the princess diva another step further by getting inot my jewellery and MAKE UP. this picture doesn't show it very well, but they both used lipstick, eye shadow and Katie used lipliner to paint her fingernails. They grow up so fast. I told them next time they want make up they have to ask and I can either do their make up, or I give them some that they can use. No more helping themselves!!
Katie and Maya took turns helping me gather firewood and just sitting on their camping chairs munching some fishy crackers. (Most of them they ended up "feeding to the foxes" by laying down trails for the wildlife.
Jeff started the fire with just a flint and some grasses, etc he found around the bush (and a small pc of papertowel). I am so proud to have such a handy and fire savy hubby. (Those who know me, know that I'm a bit of a pyro - so anything fire is fun for me:)
And on we move to bigger pieces of wood
And of course you have to have a face to prove that we ate fire-cooked food. Nothing like a little burnt hotdog, ashes and sticky smores on a kid's face to say "What a great supper!"
We wish you all a wonderful week, and now that I've figured out how to get the pictures to load better there's hoping there will be a post again before too long.
Many blessings to all.
