Together Time

There is one thing true about the Lee Children, they love each other!  Miller's asthma has been acting up this week so we have spent a lot of time at home (and doctor's offices) this week.  Which means lots of brother and sister time.  And through it all, they still love each other!  Ella and Miller love taking care of Sara Wells.  I think they might even be able to manage without me.
Even though it has been BEAUTIFUL outside, I have had to make playing inside very enticing.  It has been awhile since we have made playdough, so I thought that might keep Ell and Miller busy for a little while.

 Of course Ella chose pink!

 And Miller wanted blue and green (blue and green like Buzz Lightyear)

And after all the effort of making two colors, the first thing Miller did mash the two colors together.  
I have found memories of making playdough with my mom.  There are lots of recipes out there for play dough, here is the one I grew up making.

Easy PlayDough Recipe
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
2 T. cream of tarter
1 cup water
1 tsp vegetable oil
food coloring

Mix flour and salt well.  Cook low about 3 minutes constantly stirring.
