The house got “a little too quiet” one afternoon while I was down doing laundry, so I went hunting for kids. Here’s where I found them. They look like a random mish-mash of movie characters … The Scarecrow, the White Witch (or Lucy!), etc. They thought they looked just like Mommy and Daddy, since they had put our clothes on.
The boys made Daddy a birthday cake out of Legos (it’s not his birthday). Inside, they had hidden a little party of fuzzy balls and rubber bands. I think they were partly inspired by the layer cake episode on Master Chef, Jr. After one of the smaller siblings mercilessly destroyed the cake creation, I could just hear Gordon Ramsey in my head saying, “Wha’ a shame.”
We had a wonderful visit from Juliana and her lovely friend Diana! I’m kicking myself for not taking more pictures. They were both universally adored by the kids (probably because they played with them wholeheartedly) and a huge help to me, in addition to being wonderful grown-up company. Hoping it won’t be long before you ladies come back!
