 two kids +
snacks +

mop and broom +
the beatles help cd
= happy house

my tried and true 'i need to clean up the house and keep the girls busy at the same time' plan came through like a champ today. i keep asking myself why i didn't do it on monday?

we always build a 'fort'. and the girls love it. they play under it. tell stories, and of course, eat snacks.
if i need to vacuum the couch i use those cushions instead of chairs. 

kept them busy for 45 minutes. boo. yah.

oh, and lucy wanted a reindeer for her games. and abby was all for playing the part
leash and all:

Glad you got some cleaning done. We did a "fork" (fort) about a month ago. I don't know why we don't do them more often, because the kids LOVE it.

Love the picture of Abby in the previous post. Classic. Also love reindeer Abby. I used to make Ashley a reindeer too but I was the Grinch instead of Santa. hehehe.

Hooray for forts and keeping kids busy! And you reminded me that I need to vacuum my couches (gee, thanks!) :D
