It really is the simple things in life that can make you the happiest. For example, an ice cream bucket... simple, but it sure can make two little girls very happy! Last week we finally finished off a giant tub of ice cream, alright, so maybe I shouldn't say finally because it didn't last that long. Anyway, I decided since the girls love carrying things around with them in bags, boxes or whatever else they can get their hands on, they would love the bucket. Sure enough, they carry it full of toys, use it as a stool and it has even become a snack bowl.
The other day after the girls woke up from nap, I had their snack and water sitting out for them as usual. Claire took her little snack bowl and dumped it inside the bucket and ate her snack from there. Lillian decided to join in the fun and empty her remaining snack in the bucket as well. They sat so happily on the floor together sharing their snack. Claire was even a sweet little sister and feed Lillian some crackers.
