Paper walls

I woke up this morning to a very familiar feeling.
I felt creative. 
I mean I think I always feel creative, but sometimes the urge is more so than others.
Since I don't have my own house yet, I wanted to make my borrowed space 
feel a little more like me.  

So the girls and I (well, the boys came too, of course),
went to the craft store and bought three packs of brightly
colored paper and made paper fans for the girls bedroom wall.

I think the girls had so much fun with me, even though
their attention span was short.
Often they would come watch me at the table, or pick out their
favorite paper, then they would run off to play.
But they would always come back and check in.
The best part was showing Christian when he got home from work.
The girls made him close his eyes as they lead him into their room.
It was pretty cute.
I just hope they stay on the wall.
I'm afraid tomorrow morning I will walk in the room
to find 75% of the fans on the floor.
