Some pictures from all my girls time here the last weeks.

Sorry dear friends, I know, I´ve been a bit slow here lately, but it has been quite a busy time here after the surgery, as it´s vacationtime here in Denmark now, and as usual I´ve ha lots of the girls staying here until their parents could get their vacation too. So there has been  between 1 and 4 girls here all the time for almost the last 3 weeks, and this last week, I admit, I haven´t been worth much after this, and haven´t done much else but cleaning out after these busy weeks and then finished some different things, I had going on already.
But as usual the girls were so busy, while they were here, and ofcause we also had to do some other things with them, while they stayed here, so here´s all the pics from their times here. I warn you folks, it´s a picture heavy entry.

 Tascha and Simone were really busy building a small house and a stable with all to go with a couple of horses LOL.
 Really busy


 And finally we can begin to see, where this goes.
 Their barn and a field with grass and their horses in the barn ha ha ha
 And all the paperdolls to go with it too
 And ofcause they needed a wagon for the horses too.
 And a nice house, where they could relax with TV and everything too.
 Tascha all busy.
 And Simone very busy too.
 But there was timne for a big smile too thoug.
 And here´s Emilie, when she came by too
 She wanted to make a jewelrybox for her sister, while she was here, so the next pictures shows, what she managed to get done too and all on her own. She ponly had a tinybit of help to find out, how to make the divider inside.


 She found all the images herself and also colored them and cut them all out as she wanted them to be.
 Shealso made a small minialbum too.
 And one day, I was teaching them to make tiny bears from Pipecleaners, and here´s all Emilie got done in one afternoon LOL.
 I challenged her to make some clothes for them too, and here´s the one she actually did put clothes on ha ha ha
 Tascha made a princesscrown, we found online somewhere, she printed out and cut and put together herself too.
 Then one day we all went to a place not very far from us, whixh is called The Worldmap.
It´s made by an old man with his bare hands a showel and a wheelbarrow.
It´s taken him over 20 years to make it out to a small lake, and it´s a cpomplete map made in the ground over the entire world, and there´s pput flags on every single country in the world here.
The poictures is taken up from a tower, they´ve build now, so you can get up and have a good wiev out over it all, and it´s actually quite an amazing sight, and just to think about, how much work, he´s put into making this back then and all just for fun, but now a days, they have about 500.000 visitors every year, and I´m sure, you can see why from the pictures. People find it really fun, that they here can jump from country to country and visit every country in the world in just one afternoon LOL.
I would love to know, what you think about it too??







 And here´s Tascha, Trine and Emilie, who was here on that day.

 And they were also able to take a boatride over the Pacific Ocean too, and ofcause they had to try that.
They wanted to show of a bit and wave with the ores, but Trine didn´t think all about, where she kept it then ha ha ha
It was a huge expirience for all the girls too, and a good way to teach them a bit og Geography.
We also went to visit the huge Saltcenter here, where we have a swimmingpool with water like in the Dead Sea, but unfortunately I have to admit, I completely forgot my camera that day, which the older girls were a bit grumpy about, as they really wanted to show, how easy it is to float in water with that high saltkoncentration. But they all had a great time and enjoyed it, while they were here, and that´s what matters.
I hope, you´ll enjoy to see the pics here and all the girls work, while they stayed here. I promisse I´ll share my own work probably tomorrow, but it´s getting late here now, and I´m pretty tired, so it´ll have to wait til tomorrow.
Have a wonderful week-end sweet friends and lots of great fun I hope.
Take good care til next time we meet here.
Biiiiiiiiiig warm hugs Maryann

Maryann sure your worn out haveing all those girls to stay. Know you love having them and I'm sure they love coming to you but we are all getting older and don't take too much these days to wear us out Ha ha so I'm sure it has taken at least a week and probably will take more to get over lol. Wonderful to see how much fun the girls have at your home thats why they love coming I'm sure. Please tell them I really enjoyed seeing what they been making again the next time you see them . Lovely idea of the gentlemans to make a map of the world and sure would be a great place to teach the kids about the world. Hope you have a wonderful restful weekend and manage to get recovered to do some more of your own crafting soon warm hugs hun have a great weekend Marie
