The Big Girl Journey: Milestones


 This weekend a new milestone was achieved in the Kantola household.    

 
Daddy took a break from college football to tackle the project.


 
 The instructions proved that while they were written by someone who probably spoke English, the writer himself had most likely never actually assembled, disassembled, and then reassembled one of these bad boys.


 
 Little helper.


 
Did Daddy want the Phillips or the flat head?


 
 It's hard to tell in the still picture, but here Siennalee is mid-jump - a sure sign that she's excited.

 

 Um guys?  This isn't looking so great...


 
 Ah, that's better.  Even the cow approves.




 
 Everybody needs a helping hand every so often - even a little one.


 
 Joy!

 
The finished project!
(Temporarily minus the adorable window valance.)



Oh!  What a cute little big girl bed.  :)
