merry and magical

deep breath... the list is gone, the hustle and bustle has come to an end. nothing left to do but play! and that is exactly what we have been doing!

esme' loves lucy (she even kept her name... awww!) she opened her first and then sat and played with her while everybody else opened gifts. finally one of the big kids reminded her that she had more presents to open.
daddy made the kids a play kitchen this year! yay daddy!! it is not completely finished yet. it still needs little burners and he plans to add a shelf up above.

the kids love it and it has been played with non stop! and i have had plenty of wood and wool felt meals these past couple days. esme' and i have been busy planning more and more play food... knit food, wood food, hand sewn wool felt food... it all sounds delicious!

and now i am off to enjoy more of the after party!
playfully yours,

I love the wooden play kitchens and you husband did a fabulous job. Someone gave us a huge plastic one. Very fancy (and noisy thanks to batteries. ugh) and of course several plastic parts broke within days. It's in storage in the basement now since the kids never use it, but was so expensive that I feel guilty about getting rid of it!

"Lucy" is gorgeous. I'm glad she is so well loved. And that kitchen is awesome. :)
