Summer Snowstorm

Ethan decided his room was a perfect place to create a snowy condition for his trucks. He took an entire bottle of "papa powder" a.k.a. Shower to Shower Talcum Powder and spread it all over his room. Just another one of those kid things that drive you crazy, but are a good laugh. I couldn't punish him. He knew he was busted when I came up stairs. He was sorry and knew it wasn't a good idea when it got all over the room. Daddy helped clean it up when he got home, so no real harm done. Yesterday was just one of those days ;)

Here are some funny pics, enjoy!

Oh man, I can't imagine that was easy to clean up. can you vacuum powder? Will the filter 'catch' it? Please let me know the secret incase I ever need to do this!

We used a shop vac. It didn't help. It spread the powder everywhere. We couldn't let the boys sleep in there.

You can run a humidifier while you vac to make the powder heavy and fall to the floor. Then vac and wipe everything down with a wet cloth.

My first thought was...so smart using a shop vac...

Then oh no...that didn't work?

Then...how clever to humidify first!

LOL...he did look really cute tho!

Actually got the humidifier from reading more about allergies for Gabby. Figured if the allergens fell to the floor, so would the powder! So, thank you!!
