With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: Making a Fort

Making a Fort

Two school snow days in a row.
How does an eighteen year old... and a three year old and a dog alleviate boredom?
Why, you build a fort in the family room using all of the blankets in the linen closet and all of the chairs from the dining room and most of the pillows from the beds.
Of course!
I like to believe Abbey was mainly doing this for Ella's enjoyment...
but I'm not sure who had more fun.

Hi ldh....Sounds and looks like fun to me! And where is Grandma? Hiding under the fort? (I know. She's taking the photos).Sincerely, Susan from writingstraightfromtheheart.blogspot.com

Oh, this brings back such memories of when our daughters were little, and now our grandchildren love to make forts. For our Maya, it is more about the process of making them and putting things inside than actually staying in the fort. Jack, on the other hand, loves to settle in with books and toys and Grandpa! Thank you for sharing the photos. I enjoyed the smiles and togetherness that the snow days inspired!
In joy,
Laurie

I can remember Karen's children doing this at our mom's house when they were young. Oh, if I could just get down to the floor these days!!!!! Cute photos. Hope your weekend is very nice.

Blanket forts ~ what a perfect way to spend a snow day! You're right, it's hard to tell who's having more fun. I'm thinking it might be Abbey! : )

What memories!!! Our boys used to play "fort" all the time. Oh what a mess!!! But it was a good mess. In our Kingsport, TN house, we had a staircase into the basement...with a large landing. This was "the boat" or the "space ship". So many stories and games were played out there. Can't wait until we have grandkids...and plan fort once again...

Your post made me smile because I remember when my children were that age our house was always a mess for they used it as a playground.

I so love this....it brought back memories of my own youth, raising my kids and even times when I did some babysitting for friends on winter days.

Love it.

You can't get much better than that! Lovely to see this.

it's been a long time since I've had blanket forts constructed in my house. I do remember how much fun the kids always had though.

What could be more fun than that!??

I remember when my husband and I and our 3 children would use the 2 floors of our house and play hide and seek with only a small light on somewhere inconspicuous and it was delightful :o)
