I hadn't seen Kyla for a while today, so I called out for her, and when she came to the kitchen, where I was cleaning out my snail tank, I asked her what she was doing.
'Making you a present.'
'Because I love you.'
Awww, sometimes I have the sweetest kids. First I got cards from Denver and Kyla.
(Kyla and I)

Then they both disappeared into the garage to organise a big surprise for me. They were in and out for most of the afternoon, eventually I was asked to cover my eyes and come in to see what the had made.
Ta Da!

A model mummy, and her very own sunshine!
As well as bathroom...
(Is the toilet adorable or what??!And yes, I always bathe with a zebra.)
And of course a bed...

Did I mention my kids are the greatest?


Karen said...

That is so sweet! And really? You bathe with zebras? I prefer hippos, myself...

Karen said...

Oh, and I will concede that your girls are the greatest, though Nathan is STILL the greatest boy!

Hay said...

Lol Karen, he IS! x

Sarah said...

Awww, that's so cute and amazing too!

The Word Party

Loving words clutch crimson roses,
Rude words sniff and pick their noses,
Sly words come dressed as foxes,
Short words stand on cardboard boxes,
Common words tell jokes and gabble,
Complicated words play Scrabble,
Swear words stamp around and shout,
Hard words stare eachother out,
Foreign words look lost and shrug,
Careless words trip on the rug,
Long words slouch with stooping shoulders,
Code words carry secret folders,
Silly words flick rubber bands,
Hyphenated words hold hands,
Strong words show off, bending metal,
Sweet words call each other 'petal',
Small words yawn and suck their thumbs,
Till at last the morning comes,
Kind words give out farewell posies....
Snap! The dictionary closes.
