Blanket Party -> Fort -> DOOM TRAP

Sunday evenings can be the witching hour at our home - Mom and Dad are trying to do all of the chores neglected all weekend, plus trying to make dinner, plus getting things ready for resuming real life on Monday.  This past Sunday, instead of bouncing off the walls as per usual, Luke and Harper made their own fun.  Mom only got suspicious when it was oh so quiet in their room.

It all started out innocently enough, with an invitation for Mommy and Daddy to join them for a "blanket party."
 And it was all very calm and orderly at first
 And then it got a little crazy blurry
Suddenly a room change was needed to BUILD A FORT!
 Mom suggested using the playhouse as the entrance
As Sunday is Change the Sheets Day, there were many blankets at their disposal
Harper was not afraid
 They were oh so very proud of themselves
(when she learns how to slam doors, we're doomed)
 An annex was added for increased "spookiness"
 Luke's fireman sleeping bag was employed
And Harper added her own touch
But then she took a break to tend after her doll, "Baby Goldfish" (her name, not ours)

 "Night night, baby. Night night, Baby Goldfish."
 She is very methodical about it
I think she needs a swaddling tutorial
Luke beckons from the fort
No idea what thy were up to here
 Finally, Luke dragged Daddy's shoes and hats out of his closet to create the DOOM TRAP (a la an episode of the old Adam West era Batman show he has been watching on repeat)
 "Harper, don't you want to come into the DOOM TRAP?"
 Harper, wisely, was all "Lukey is loco."
