Too Young for Chores?

Nope! Mckinley loves to help me unload the dishwasher. Today she got a little independent and did it on her own.

I can't believe she's tall enough to put the silverware in the drawer by herself but apparently she is.

So proud of herself.

The finished product: (now tell me that doesn't put a smile on your face)

A kiss for a job well done.

It's funny the things she picks up on that you would never think of. She got Brandon's keys and tried to unlock the door (from the inside, ha ha ha).

She LOVES putting our shoes on and walking around the house in them.

The poor little thing has been sick the past few days. She loves her pink blanket (thank you McKenzie!) and was lounging around on the kitchen floor with her doll.

A self-family portrait in the backyard when the leaves on the tree were beautiful. Those leaves can now be found on the ground waiting for us to clean them up.

P.S. you were not lying about CUTE photos. you can Bomb your blog with photos anytime. :D

Cute! I think she seems older than Bryce for two reasons: 1) all that hair! 2) no older siblings pestering her all day = she can do what she wants! :)

oh goodness she is getting so big and manages to somehow get even cuter than the last time I checked in on your blog and saw sweet photos of her :) Good job on the silverware Mckinley! What a sweet little helper :)

and I love that family portait in front of those gorgeous, golden leaves :) They never seem to stay on the tree as long as we'd like! Glad to see you guys are doing great :)

So cute - I love the family pic with the yellow leaves. Ours haven't dropped yet, but raking time isn't too far away. :(
And Linc does the exact same thing with the silverware - so cute - you're right, you can't help but smile.

Lucky to be the mom said...

Oh, I am so proud! Busting buttons over here! Wahoo McKinley!!!! All of my kids have been just about that age when they started doing chores - and I found that they liked working with me as much as playing and really didn't know there was any difference!

I hope she's feeling better soon...and could she bee any cuter!?!?!!? I think not!
