These photos are straight out of my iPhone and not fancy. The 3GS’ quality is “iffy” when light does not fall directly on the subject. Please excuse.
But wait ’til I get my Amazing Camera this summer! Oh, it’s gonna be sooooo Grrreat!!
This morning Kelly went up to her clubhouse to brush her hair and arrange Kirsten for breakfast.
I came back from dropping her at school to find Kirsten still at table.
She sat there all day like that. Such amazing staying power! Just sitting and sitting.
Kellllllly, where arrrrre you?? I’m waaaaaaiting.
The photo directly above is one of those “iffy” ones due to the 3GS’ lighting challenges.
But enough of that…
Yesterday Kelly and her pals had a little American Girl Doll party in the clubhouse.
The dolls got so sleepy…
Mid-afternoon I arrived with a tray of apple juice and popcorn to find Kelly wedged between the bed and the frame.
Luckily her friends managed to pull her free.
I still have to set the bunk bed up correctly. We got it off Craigslist, and one bolt was missing.
But I WILL get it together. And take photos when I get my Amazing Camera!
See all the great stuff to look forward to in Funsterland??
Yep, Jim had the clubhouse hard-wired. That’s an A/C / heating unit in the back wall.
And Kelly amazed me the other day by asking for the little cuckoo clock I got in Germany to hang on her wall. I said “Sure! Why not?!”
Who am I to stand in the way of an 8-year-old’s decorating dreams??
She arranged everything in there herself.
She even brought her broom up and keeps the floor swept!!
And finally, a Kodak action shot of Kelly supervising her dad on construction in April, 2008…
Good-used American Girl Doll Kirsten off eBay, landed — $97.50.
Total building materials — $2000.00.
Jim’s labor for 12 months working part-time on tree-house — Priceless!
Do you or have you ever had a cuckoo clock? Any cuckoo clock stories to tell?
