Sunday Snapshot

Ni Hao Y'all

Today, The Boss set about finishing the last steps of our little kitchen re-do.  He laminated our new kitchen counter and finished off the end of the newly-shortened peninsula. Pictures from that project will come later, I promise!

When he took the laminate out of its packaging, Lady Bug and Baby BlueEyes decided it would make a perfect spaceship for a certain little astronaut.

The Mei~Mei 3, ready for launch . . .

Every commander needs a headset!

Command Central, keyboard and all!

All of their engineering, manufacturing, and interior decorating went very well. Until Li'l E was IN the spaceship. She leaned out the window of her aircraft to get a better view of the moon and the whole thing started tipping right over.

If LadyBug hadn't moved so quickly, Li'l Empress would have broken her spacecraft's fall. With her face. My heart was in my throat as we righted the ship and realized just how awful that engineering error could have been.

They rescued our poor little moon-walker
from her command post and turned the
spacecraft in to a boat.

  Ahoy, maties! Permission to come aboard?

good idea...a boat always seems safer :) never run out of oxygen or water, not likely tip over

Nothing like a big box to really get the creative juices flowing! What fun!

What a creative use of a box. And I'm thankful that the rocket mishap was stopped in time!
