Yet another Daddy-daughter date to report. We bought a treadmill not too long ago, and sweet Steve has been saving this box downstairs so he can “build” a house for Hallie! So Saturday rolled around and I worked in the morning so Steve had Hallie to himself. He pulled up that box from downstairs, cut a door, a few windows, drew a few shutters on it, and a welcome sign above the door! They had a blast together in this house.
Hallie did have one complaint, “Daddy, too dark, no lights.” Steve may be able to work his magic with a pair of scissors but wiring a cardboard box was above and beyond his abilities! Hallie put her baby to bed in this “house” and made herself quite comfortable. That is until she tried climbing in through the sunroof, which of course she fell miserably through, landing square on the stool sitting inside the house. The tears were a flowin’, but dangle one sticker in front of her and her bruised and possibly shattered cheekbone is suddenly forgotten, and all for a sticker! Oh to have the resilience of a child again!!
so i remember when hallie use to be "cute" . . .and now i find her in the "not a little girl anymore stage" and she is really a beautiful girl. just look at those golden locks of hair. you think she gives you trouble now . . .i'm thinking by dating age you will have more than your hands full 🙂 love the new house-brady and i will be lucky if we can ever afford anything that nice!! go daddy yo!!
I particularly like the "welcome" sign above the front door. That is some sweet handwriting…did Steve write it or Hallie?
Kevin (my bro) tried to build a fort like this for Zack not long ago…Zack was not interested & Kevin was sitting in it by himself. Classic.
I know I always tell you this, but Hallie is darling…so beautiful! Stephen and Hallie will never forget these priceless times together..bravo Steve!
Wow–there are pictures of Kara on the blog!!! I'm so proud of Steve for taking pictures!! When are you coming back to Idaho??
Steve is the coolest Dad ever. Props to HIM! 🙂 That house is rad. Will Steve make me one?
