Kyndall's got her Grandpa's genes!!

Most of you know that Bill Kelly (Kyndall's Grandpa) is one of the best carpenters in the USA!! He has made us a tile kitchen table, custom entertainment center, chess table, trash can (wooden and super classy looking), shelves for my craft shows, a gliding bench for outside, a changing table for the girls, and helped Jim build our playset outside etc....(meaning there are many more things I could list!!) Jim is also a great craftsman building a rocking chair (with his dad), Kyndall and Avery's crib, the playset, etc.... So knowing that you will see why I wanted to take Kyndall to Lowe's with her friend Kate (and my good friend Jenny) for some tinkering (we told Kyndall she would be tinkering like Tinker Bell-gotta see the movie-). So Kate and Kyndall did Awesome!! First of all, it was completely free. The girls got a little kit to make a wooden garage with a wooden car to go in it. They got a loaner hammer and their very own carpenter apron with a patch to sew on everytime they make something new there!!! Kyndall just loved hammering the nails in and putting the garage together...and she especially loved doing it with her friend Kate. I was amazed at how much patience and determination these girls had to finish their projects. They helped find the short or long nails, read the directions, counted, and hammered all the nails in themselves!! They were pretty excited with their finished projects too!! Thanks Lowe's for the fun Saturday morning activity!!!
Kyndall and Kate: The absolute CUTEST Lowe's builders in the whole world!!!
All the girls doing our carpentry!! Notice the aprons Lowes provides for the kiddos for free!! Jenny and I decided to "jazz them up" a bit for next time....ruffles and bows??
The finished garage!!
This last pic just shows you that she has a little of her Mommy's "Jazz it up" (her words) ideas in her for her garage....and she is definitely a girly-girl...the garage promptly became the Barbie's bed as soon as she got home!!

They do the same thing at Home Depot the first Saturday of the month. In December, they get to make a little wooden wagon! My girls love it!
