Wendy House

 The Wendy house is complete.  It took the grandpa, the uncle, and a daddy to put the one million pieces together.  The box said, "Easy assembly!  Put together in one hour!"  Very funny.  It took three days to complete, but it was worth it! 

 Sometimes a girl needs to sit on a toadstool when she washes her dishes.
 Ding!  Dong!  It even has a doorbell!





 Yikes!  There is a very green lizard on the bar!  Birdie is ordering a cup of coffee.
 Glee!  The peonies are coming!

Happy Mother's Day!  I think I'll plant flowers, place gnomes and toadstools, and knit.  We'll gather the mothers and the kiddies, too.  We'll miss April and the four Ft. Collins cherubs.  Brad will treat her like a queen, I know.
I wish I could see my mama, but she's with one of my brothers and one of my sisters.  I'm thankful for that!
Thank you for peeking into my the grandkids' playhouse!  Flower beds and gnomes coming soon!  (LOVE!)

Your flowers are beautiful!
I hope you have a most relaxing Mother's Day! I have to work on Sunday, but I get Monday and Tuesday off, so I'll spoil myself then! Hugs!

That is just perfect. I really love the mushroom stool. That is just so awesome.
I bet they will spend hours in your yard playing. You are such a great Grandma

The Wendy House is so perfect. The little ones will spend hours upon hours playing. My little granddaughters have a little play house where they spend a lot of their time. I have even had the pleasure of being invited for tea. Perhaps you will receive the same invitation.

I love your Wendy house and I just know that when the children are away, grandma will play! What fun you will all have, can you even sleep in there perhaps at a squeeze? why not! Bettyx

Oh how glorious! What a treasure for you and your little ones to enjoy together. Like Frances, I would have adored one of these as a child.

They are called Wendy Houses after the heroine of Peter Pan - I'm sure you knew that PomPom.

Willows Three are well and gearing up for next adventure!

What a little palace! It brings back memories of my own childhood when my Grandmother had a little tool shed made over into a playhouse for me. She had all the furnishings, dishes, curtains...you name it! The girls look thrilled! Love your gardens!
Happy Mother's Day!
Hugs,
Courtney

Oh Pom Pom I adore that Wendy House of yours! Can I come & sit on that toadstool..I'll even do the dishes : )
Yes, one hour does seem overly ambitious, I must say.
I can't believe how much Atticus has grown..isn't it amazing how quickly babies turn into "people"!
So many peony buds...how marvelous!
Of course we should take pictures of dinner..although I read once that 80o/o (can't figure out where percent is sorry) of blogs have fallen by the wayside after the first month??? Much love GRAND mother. Catherine x0x0x

Happy Mothers Day to you, Pom Pom.
The Wendy House is adorable. What fun that will be! I think we would all enjoy the task of dishwashing more from the comforts of a toadstool :).
Your peonies are going to be a beautiful sight.

Perfick- may I come play? I have a yellow snake to go with the green lizard?

catkin tales said...

how sweet this post is. it takes me right back to the days of my own wendy house, only it wasn't nearly as wonderful as yours.
i love peonies, i can never remember the name of those blue flowers but i always think they smell like strawberries.

Oh how great...I pray my son will be building one of these soon...after he finishes up the play ground in Cambodia...this would be an answer to so many prayers.

It is just precious...way to go Dad and Granddad...may there be years and years of wonderful memories

Vicki said...

Hi, Pompom,
I hope your Mother's Day was perfect in every way! You and your grandbabies will have a lot of fun in that cute playhouse. I was just thinking today that I would love for my four little stair-step granddaughters to have a playhouse. I know I always wanted one when I was a little girl. Have a happy week, sweet friend. Sending love to you~Vicki

Lynn said...

I love it - I could live there. And how lovely to find toadstool seats in your year of the toadstool!!

Thanks for the giggle...takes 3 hours...how funny...took 3 days. Maybe it would take 3 hours now that you've put it together and now how it fits, ya think? -hahaha-

Nicole Sanders said...

Wow I love the Wendy house. What lucky little grand kiddies. My girls would adore it. Happy you enjoyed a lovely mothers day.

Gumbo Lily said...

Oh, I like this Wendy house. So good of the men to put it all together. Is it in your yard for the grands to enjoy during Granny Camp?
