chateau joelle

I love it when kids just play. No fancy toys needed -- just their imagination.

This afternoon Joelle and Malia were playing 'hotel' (that's a new one for them as far as I know). They spread out the gads of blankets that have been stock-piling in Joelle's room to make different beds and called it their hotel.

Now, I'm sure any of you would be welcome to stay at the ritzy Chateau Joelle -- but let me warn you that the prices are fairly steep.

When I questioned the hotel owner -- Miss Joelle herself -- what the cost was to stay at her hotel, she said that the price sometimes changed. At times it is "ten twenty eighty", at other times it is "fifty twenty eighty" and...apparantly it has even gone up as high as "forty hundred billion."

So, I'm thinking that the guests who will stay at this new hotel will be pretty few and far between. Afterall -- who can afford forty hundred billion?

So guess where Joelle wanted to sleep tonight?

Not in her comfortable bed. Oh no -- she wanted to sleep on the hard floor in her beautiful hotel. It's a good thing that as the hotel owner she gets to stay for free since she doesn't really have any money of her own yet -- and there's no way I would foot the bill for a night at that rediculously over-priced hotel!!

It's so great when kids know how to play like that. With that kind of imagination they'll never be bored. Good for you for taking pictues of and appreciating the everyday moments of your kids.

That's funny. Forty hundred billion! Must be some amazing continental breakfast for that price. Did Joelle say anything about that?
