Well, turns out, it's not SO bad after all. When Hadleigh is distracted by friends and new to her toys, Taryn and I can get a lot done together. Tyson was chatting with those at the party because he claims he does not have the artist patience :)
That is one happy girl! She kept saying, "Ok, now I want to build the big one!"
So next year we're buying our kits before Thanksgiving!
