Two Rich Ladies, the Secret Service, & a Robber

While I was making lunch today, the kids ran upstairs and secretively got busy scheming and dressing up. They all raided their dress-up stashes and came out looking like this.

Among Kathleen's get up are her First Communion dress (underneath the red one) and a old doily on her head.

After the girls decided to be old fashioned rich ladies, the boys decided to be their robbers.

It was all going quite well, until... the last minute, Mikey decided to be the rich ladies' (not so) secret service protector.

Jimmer pleaded, "No Mikey, because then there would be three good guys against one bad guy."

Mikey insisted, Jimmer resisted...then refused to dress up.

Jimmer wasn't very happy about it...

...and said Mikey ruined his whole play.

Jimmer then fired Mikey and went back into the house.

He's okay. He was only upset for a couple of minutes because when he came in and looked at the pictures of himself crying, he laughed and thought they were funny!

Then off he was again to see if Mikey wanted to play with his Playmobil toys.

That clipped shot is so cool! Hope everyone is happy in the land of make-believe (and real life).

That was a good story- until the end- when Jimmer was sad :( I'm glad he wasn't sad for too long, little sweetheart. How fun that the kids can think up such cool things to do on their own- and there is enough of them to actually make an "event" of it!

Poor ol' Jimmer. I see those kind of tears a lot around here.

The girls looked so pretty.

Awww! Poor Jimmer. But what a resilient little soul to laugh at his crying pictures! I can say with absolute certainty that that would never be the reaction of my older one. It would have been a crying fest around here for a while. But what creativity for all of your kids!!!
