Time With Zoey

This is my granddaughter Zoey, she inspires me. See that sweet smile.
My Sweet Granddaughter Zoey is spending two weeks with us. What a blessing she is.  We love to have her and she wanted to help me today. In fact she really did help me. This is one of those projects that I have been meaning to do for years. In fact I am ashamed to say I meant to fix it up for my own daughter, her mother, years ago. Anyway Zoey came to me and asked me if she could play with the doll highchair that was in the garage. Now I got that highchair for Christmas when I was about five. It is very old and very ugly and very wobbly. And missing two supports. With her helping out I went to the garage and found a dowel and glued in the two missing supports. Then glued the whole thing back together. She dusted it off and started sanding.
 And sanding.
 And Sanding.
Isn't she just the cutest little helper?
Then I let her paint the chair while I painted one of my own projects. I didn't even supervise which is amazing for me since I always want to over supervise, but totally working on it.
Hard at work.
 I will have to post finished pictures when we are all done with it. But thought this was just too cute for words. She really did a great job for a seven year old. Nanna is teaching her right!
