Our sweet elderly neighbors gave us this birdbath. (The same neighbors that gave me a tourist type T-shirt for Jansen that said "Son of a Beach" on it. Should I be offended? Also the same neighbors that brought us some pastries in a Victoria's Secret bag.) The birdbath has spent most of its time with us rolling around to different locations in the backyard. One day the girls had the wonderful idea of using it as a table.
I think we all know why I included this picture. Thank you, Emmy, for making me laugh every day.
We had a cold-ish day a few weeks back and the kids went wild inside. Natalie LOVES to raid the recycling box. It drives me absolutely crazy to see her drag garbage back in the house, but I also cannot bring myself to tell her that she can't "make" whatever it is she has in mind. She and Jansen made this city.
A close up of their hard work.
I'm pretty good about letting them make messes but ALWAYS warn them that they will need to clean it ALL up. They agree happily. But then clean up time comes and there is ALWAYS much groaning and moaning. I wouldn't want to clean this up either I guess. It's also a barricade to keep Emmy out.
The other half of the mess.
