Sunday is my day to sleep in and when Waldo and Lily came to wake me up I got a surprise. Lily showed me her new kitten Snow Flake and I saw she had some special Lily made wings taped to her back.
Me: Those are beautiful wings Lil, nice work.
Lil: I made her wings because it’s been her dream to fly.
Me: Oh yeah. That’s cool.
Lil: I made her dream come true.
Me: Wow, you rock.
After we got dressed I grabbed the camera and asked her why she made the wings. I just needed that for the future.
I missed last week accidentally so this post is going to be for the last two weeks.
We were at a store getting new beds and they had a little room with chalkboard walls for kiddos to play in. Lily had some fun.
Lily decided that Kitty needed to get her hair done.
Dr. Lily and her grandpa (Papa) playing XBox party.
Lily set these guys up and asked me to take the picture.
My Mother in Law made this princess doll for my niece. We’ve made some changes to the doll at this point, but she still looks mostly the same.
After the zoo last weekend we went to get frozen yogurt instead of zoo ice cream. It was a good decision.
Lily was dancing the ‘neigh neigh horse dance’.
My little crafty princess made some wings for Clifford while Waldo and I were rearranging the family room.
Lily in her new bed.
Lily drew Mickey Mouse and the clubhouse gang from memory.
Lily also drew this fire truck while we were rearranging.
Wow, this post is from last summer. It’s been sitting in my pending posts all year and I totally forgot about it.
To make goop you mix about equal parts of corn starch and water. You can add food coloring if you’re feeling crazy. Lily loves this stuff. She’ll play with it for hours, or at least she would last year. We haven’t made it in forever. I think we’ll do some this afternoon.
I took over 750 picture while we were in Montana last week. I’m working on processing those pictures and posts for them and I’m still finishing up my post about CA. I am just so tired from all this traveling that it’s hard to get anything finished. I thought this post would do for now at least. 🙂
I hope when you read the title you think of Saved By The Bell and Zach.
Over the last few months while I stalked Pinterest I kept running across recipes for GAK, but it required Borax and I didn’t have any. Well I finally found Borax at Whole Foods so Lily and I made some Gak.
Out of all of my food coloring colors Lily decided on orange. Not my first choice, but she likes it.
She loves the texture and feel of the Gak. She played with it for a very long while.
We still have it in a zip lock bag and Lil gets it out and plays occasionally.
I think Gak gets a 4 out of 5 crayon rating. I totally recommend it.
I made leek and potato soup last week and froze the leftover for later use. We decided that later was this past Monday. To make the leftover special I made Parmesan fricos to go on them. They were super easy to make and very yummy.
While we were at Hobby Lobby last week Waldo bought a little balsa wood plane for him and Lil to play with. It was a big hit.
Lily is very much in the stage of life where she is very opinionated about well everything but especially her clothing. So I have decided that as long as she’s weather appropriate it’s her choice.
This is one of Lily’s newest paintings. We have so many wonderful paintings on our walls. Who needs to buy artwork when you have a kid who loves to paint? Lil says it’s a man with really big pink feet balancing on sticks. I thought it was Lorax trees, but what do I know?
