    Weekend Recap Part 2 AKA Gabby and the Castle Mailbox
    I had one of those rare moments when I got creative AND motivated at the same time. Alex was making room in Gabby's closet and cleaned out two medium/large boxes and me being me looked at it and said "Don't throw those away I want to make Gabby a Castle." His response was one of those along the lines of what ever that will happen when pigs fly in a frozen hell. But I did!!

    Sunday Morning I told Gabby what I wanted to make for her and she didn't quite get it. But the more I cut and started gluing the more excited she got. (which that is an awesome feeling!) She got to tell me where the door was to go and where the window needed to be and what kind of window (one big hole or four little squares). And her only real demand is that there needed to be a flag.

    I wish there was video of her during the creative spurt, so you can see the wonderful mixture of little girl (giggling hysterically when I cut a circle in the door for a door knob) and the decisive big girl giving her opinion and suggestions ("I don't want to paint it. I just want it brown. I like the brown."). Like telling me she didn't want star shaped stars cut in the roof, "just little circles".

    I enjoyed the time we spent building her castle, I loved watching her help me glue the squares to the roof and place her flag.

    But I think I'm just babbling, So here are some pictures!
