childs play

my screen saver at the moment is the photo below.
i created a 'light box' of sorts to use outside when taking photos of my products and little miss Claudia just had to 'play' with some of my props. i just love her chubby little fingers and if only you could have heard her made up conversation with the little people. when my girls play together it is pure bliss to listen to and watch. of course 70% of the time they are bickering which i assume is NORMAL.
anyhow here is lilis first 'patient'...
poor old Sid needed emergency care as he fell off the bed and broke a few bones...
even his tail was injured. lili has a certain number of toys on her bed at all times and in a certain order. reminds me of when i was younger and i would surround myself with the toys to keep the monster under my bed from reaching me. 0_o
and then there is this wonderful show on the ABC that is called 'Mr Maker' which runs for about 20mins and this fabulous guy shows the viewers how to make great little pieces of art and craft. i have often thought that as a teacher it would make a valuable resource to view the program and then have the materials at hand then let the children create! if you get the chance watch it, 2:45pm on ABC2.
i tape the show for the girls as it is school pick up time and when they get a chance they watch it and create :) look at these wonderful 'box creatures' that they made all by themselves...
Claudia's skinny twin :)
ooohhh arrrgggg I'm going to eat you!
how gosh darn cute is that!
i have lots of memories from my childhood and now i am watching my girls make their own memories. SWEET!
i have some news to share but i will only share half of the news until it is market buddy Renata and i will be renting a space out at petrie markets which means no more packing and unpacking, we wont have to worry about the weather and part of my dream is coming true....of course we wont be in this space alone but that surprise will have to wait! very exciting!!
happy Wednesday

Lol, great attempts on scaring by the girls. Need much practice. Baby G loves Mister Maker too, especially the part when the shapes are dancing since she can't hold up scissors yet. It cracks me up all the time too! Those shapes!
