Remember when a pillow fort was the evil mastermind's lair?
Oh, to be a child again, and have the ability to turn pillows into spaceships, and cousins into horses and unicorns, or freeze the world with a flick of a magic wand.

The Peanut's new found love - is forts. She is crazy about building. She is all about the fort making these days. In fact she often has two on the go. And some are exclusive forts - meaning only non-slipper wearing people can enter :)
She has become quite ingenuitive and resourceful, and I have found many interesting things in the making of her forts. Things like hair clips, canvases, binder rings, twist ties are but a few structures and fasteners she has used.
Despite her major transformation and often tricky maneuvering of the living room as well as the complete loss of all the kitchen chairs, I love the creativity that she exudes and imagination that seeps from her precious little self.
So for now, I will rejoice in the fact that I am among the earthlings still welcome in her forts.
Especially while accompanied with cookies and milk!
Do you remember building forts as a child?
