So what did my kids do while I tore apart my house?
First they colored and decorated ornaments for our Halloween Tree. (Addison found Ellie's pumpkin princess costume from a couple of years ago and hasn't taken it off. She has to have the whole thing on at all times including the hair accessory and shoes.)
Then the girls had a fabulous time playing with all of the mess I made. They brought down all of their barbies and polly pockets and princesses who had all sorts of fun "living" in my various decorations.
And Kole? Well, I was busy so I sort of just turned him over to the girls...
