How to: Survive a Dreary Day!

Standard

Yesterday was Emma’s Birthday Party. Our gorgeous blue eyed whirlwind had a fabulous time celebrating with family and friends:

This morning, as we woke up in a post birthday party haze, everyone was excited about the presents Emma received yesterday, and they wasted no time going downstairs in a flurry of excitement. But… there was one problem! Upon looking over one of Emma’s new gifts, and ripping open the packaging, the girls noted something was missing…

“MOM!!! We need a kitchen!”

And thusly, today’s dreary day activity was born by the seat of my pants. We found some materials around the house, a little paint, some brushes, and some boxes:

And of course, we got out Mommy’s sparkly letter tool box…

And then got back to business… painting, and drawing out our plans on the cardboard!

Whoops! Somebody got ahold of the camera!

And once it was all finished: Refrigerator, Microwave, Stove, Oven, Sink, They played with it!

Yup, and we got ahold of the camera again! But at least she “Loves You!”

The fruits of our labor!
