Artsy Fartsy

     I get to have 4 of my favorite kids over today! Add them to mine and it makes 7 kids age 6-2!

I don't have a picnic table but had an idea rolling around in my head and decided to try it out this morning...

It was what my mom would call an "Artsy Fartsy" morning!

Along with my trusty helper

I took Ravenna's old metal bed that has been sitting behind our house since Georgia came home and the kids switched to bunkbeds...

added some old wooden boxes to make a table top...

Then added the tablecloth

and Woila! (as Parker says)

It's Tea party time!!!!

Meanwhile, inside the kids were prepping for their friends as well...

Getting funky

Sister's setting up "camp" in the living room

Everyone snuggly!

Love you Becca and Rach and cannot wait to have your kids here!

That is seriously impressive and pretty cool that those boxes fit that perfectly.

LOVE the bed and the tea party. Oh how fun! You are a FUN mom! (And Artsy Fartsy is totally a word that is used around here too.) Looks like it was a fun time and a success.

Hey! I have little beaded spoons to go with those very teasets :)
Hope it was a blast!
