Christmas Break Day 1
I have been cleaning and spiffing up my sewing room today. I noticed Kendal and Emmitt sneaking into the closet and picking out a few pieces of Dora the Explorer fabric that they were laying down in the hall and playing hopscotch with. I told them that was fine, but no big messes. Well, this is what I came out to in the living room a little while later. My sewing room looked great, but all my novelty fabric stash was all over the living room floor! They were having a fantastic time! I must have really been into my cleaning not to see them sneaking all that fabric out of the room I was cleaning!
About an hour after we got all that cleaned up and put away, I was pinning a quilt in the front room. I heard Kendal yell "Eugene, please, help me!" I turned around to see Kendal as Rapunzel with a long green fabric scrap for hair, and Emmitt as Eugene climbing up to save her. They crack me up. When I told Kendal that whatever was in the box was a breakable Christmas present from Grandma and Grandpa in Missouri and that it could not be her tower, the two immediately began making a couch cushion tower. That is what they are doing right now. I can hear them now, and I hear the farm horses and cows have joined them in the tower. I hope it is the plastic horses and cows!
