Family Heirloom

Years (and years) ago, Vickie painted this sweet little step-stool as a gift to me. It's been well loved and saw a lot of use when my kids were growing up but for the last few years, it's been more of a decorative item.

Until this week, when Leia discovered it.
She uses it all around the house, but especially in the kitchen where it's perfect for searching the counter-tops for num-nums. Just the right size for a little girl to practice her independence. Thanks again, Auntie Vickie.

Elizabeth loves to swing so high,
Bearleigh chases a butterfly,
Daisy weaves a flower chain,
Three little dolls a friendship gain.

Running, jumping or pulling a cart,
these three dolls are never apart.
The secret, you guessed it,
Lives in their heart.
