We love playing with playdough!!!






So we love playdough at our house! Ashlyn loves to make cookies, and bugs and any other random creation she can think up. So yesterday I decided to let alysse in on the playdough fun. And needless to say she had a blast! My biggest problem was trying to get her not to eat it. So we are having fun create-n' some playdough magic, and then ashlyn brings out a knife to "cut her cookies with" and alysse goes nuts, and wants a knife too. And yes...i will let my five year old play with knives but alysse i had to think about for a second. I already know...not gonna be listed as mom of the year! So after ten mintues or so of screaming I gave alysse a plastic knife to cut with...and she was happy as can be. Until she figured out ashlyn's was better so i gave her the real butter knife for like two seconds and she was cutting up a storm. It sometimes amazes me how much the second child picks up. So all in all our playdough playdate was a success and the girls played so cute together. Ashlyn made cookies and snails... and alysse... welll...she made a mess!

I love that picture of Alysse holding up the playdough with a smile of victory on her face! How funny are our girls...they just know when they don't have the same thing as the older sister!! I haven't had mailee play with the playdough yet....maybe I will...and I say me and you are in the running for the "NOT the mother of the year"award :)...cause I would've done the same thing as you! it makes me wish we lived close to eachtoerh so then our littles could play together :(

Looooved the makeup for FALL! Too bad in this dumb rain and humidity it would just melt off :(. I will get some once it gets cooler i think. You have to tell me what colors you get. You always had good makeup :)

Okay so how simple and clever, yet I would never thought of it. Playing with play dough on the kitchen floor - brilliant I tell you! :)

Hey girlie, I let my kids do that too! Don't feel bad, right now Hannah is watching Harry Potter #2, am I a bad mom or what? I can't believe she is not the least bit scared!
