The Morning After at the Redmonds (Photostory)
The Redmonds are the first family to use to new Pink Dreamhouse. For this first story, I left the walls as is. I did have a problem with lighting. I need to filter the light to avoid the spotlight. I'll work on that next time. In the meantime, it's the day after Christmas ......
"Good morning, honey. The coffee is ready. Have a seat. I'll bring it over." (Sylvia)
"Well another Christmas is gone. Every year I say I'm going to get things done early, and I never do." (Sylvia)
"But everything was great. Just like it is every year. Are we going out visiting today?" (Christopher)
"I don't think so. I promised Jessica she could have a couple of friends over later. This morning she is making blueberry muffins for them." (Sylvia)
Sylvia finishes her coffee and heads upstairs to check on the baby and then get dressed. Christopher remains for awhile, then he too goes to get dressed.
After getting dressed, Sylvia checks in on Sophia, again.
She is still sound asleep. All the Christmas festivities must have tuckered her out.
Sylvia heads downstairs to get things prepared for Jessica. She has located the recipe for blueberry muffins.
"Did you wash your face and hands?" (Sylvia)
"Mom, where's the box?" (Jessica)
"What box?" (Sylvia)
"The box of blueberry muffin mix." (Jessica)
"Oh, that box. I thought we would make them from scratch instead of using the box mix." (Sylvia)
"What is scratch?" (Jessica)
"That's when you use the fresh ingredients. It's much healthier for you. I need to get another bowl and the measuring cups. Pour the blueberries in that bowl." (Sylvia)
"Okay. The blueberries are in." (Jessica)
"Good. I have the measuring cups. We will need those in a minute." (Sylvia)
All of a sudden Sylvia can hear Sophia.
"Honeeey? Can you get Sophiaa?" (Sylvia yells upstairs)
Sophia is waiting for someone to come get her.
"Hey pretty girl. You ready to get out of there?" (Dad)
Meanwhile, Jessica has made a lot of progress with her homemade muffin mix.
"Should I add more blueberries, Mom?" (Jessica)
"No. I think you have enough." (Sylvia)
"I think it's done." (Jessica)
"Well grab your muffin pan. I already sprayed it with cooking spray." (Sylvia)
"Good morning, sweetie. You slept a long time." (Sylvia to Sophia)
"Come to Mommy." (Sylvia)
"Dad look. I'm making blueberry muffins without the box." (Jessica)
"That's great. What's next?" (Dad)
"I have to put it in the muffin pan and then it goes in the oven." (Jessica)
"I guess Mommy needs to get you some breakfast." (Sylvia to Sophia)
We will check back on the Redmonds, later. If all goes well, the muffins will be done when we get back. I have to hop over to the Taylor's home now. Today is the day Rod, Danielle, and the kids leave for Florida.
