Sweet Dolly Baby Food

These little baby food food jars are the most played with toys in house.  I just whipped up little labels on the computer & used contact paper to keep the labels safe.  Even after being banged around by 2 kids for 2 years...they are still intact AND still have their lids...Amazing!
The little girls love to use them to feed their dollies.  The little boys love to screw & unscrew the tops over & over again.  You would be amazed what my son puts in these jars.  If you would like a copy of the labels I would be happy to send you them in a Microsoft Publisher document.
My kids practically live in their kitchen set.  So I enjoy making it a sweet little place to be.  Here is Annie's little shelf. 
   The other day Annie told me, "Mom, I make good decisions, do you want to hear them?"  Of course I did!  "One...no drinking beer.  Two...no touching my glass animals.  Three...Don't watch too much t.v.   Aren't those good?"  I actually let her play with the little glass animals if she is just by herself...note the chipped ears.  When friends are over things tend to get broken.  But what fun are they to have if you can't touch them?
The little glass chickens are her own collection just like mine.
Here is just a peek inside their world:
And hopefully that will keep this little messy thing...
...busy enough so that he isn't quite as curious in my kitchen.

And you blame me for that dishwasher door breaking ;)

Your girls are adorable, Libbie! I wish that my daughter was that little again! Believe it or not, in many ways, having them young and in diapers was a lot less complicated! ;0)

My daughter loved tea parties, too! Take advantage of every opportunity to bond with them in that way. I don't think I did enough of that and am really wishing I had now. It gets harder and harder to connect as they get older -- especially in the middle school years. But everyone tells me that they come back around! ;0)

Thanks for visiting my blog! Yours is too cute!

That is so adorable! I am looking forward to buying my little girl a kitchen set :) They look like they are having a wonderful time.

I was also looking at the kids costumes, Great Job!

Oh my goodness... how totally coincidental... but my two year old does this exact same thing... but what is really crazy is that I have the same starbucks mug (its huge and I <3 it), and the same green and white frog sippy cup! :-)

So I was visiting your blog yesterday and all day I wondered if I had left a comment about your childrens beautiful play room. Then I was thinking - how on earth do I find that blog again. Anyhow, here I end up again tonight! And no I didn't leave a comment - how rude!
My daughter would love to join you for a tea party! Together we are tea party queens. And do you have space on your dishwasher door for my son? Cause he would be happy to join yours there too, he's very disappointed that our new house has dish drawers!
