We stuck the phone on there becuase the kids love playing with it. Allison frequently "calls Grandma and Grandpa." Its very cute... and the phone is more useful as a pretend toy for the kids than a connumication device when you don't have land-line service.
Anyway, the plans we used for the kitchen can be found here. There are several other plans on that page too. This kitchen is patterned after a now-discontinued Pottery Barn Kids play kitchen.
Allison loved ringing up her own groceries and pushing the buttons to make the receipt print.
So cute! The reading nook at Sesame Street!
They both loved the big aquariums at the entrances.

And what about those cleaning days? Seriously? How am I supposed to accomplish 2 or more hours or real, actual cleaning when I've got these kids following me around, asking for constant attention, fighting with eachother and whining about being bored, or hungry, or tired. Just exactly when am I supposed to accomplish that? Naptime... doesn't exactly last that long anymore. And I typically use naptime to "treat" myself to a nice, healthy lunch that doesn't consist of food leftover from my kids' lunch plates (and, furthermore, since when was a real meal a treat? At what point in my life did proper nutrition morph from need to privilege?).

Stilling the Storm, Artist Ted Henninger
She points to Jesus and says "There's Jesus! Jesus is a pirate!"
Doctrinally sound? Nope. But thats okay... we're pretty sure Heavenly Father has a sense of humor too. :)
