Emma had her very first Valentine’s Day Party at school last week. She was so cute! We went to Wal-Mart to pick out Valentine’s Day cards and she stopped in front of the aisle and said, “What do I do Mama?” She hasn’t ever done anything like this and was completely lost and confused. Emma ended up with (of course) puppies and kitties. She’s such the animal lover.
Ellie got to go to the party Friday afternoon after a long lecture of “NO WHINING, NO CRYING, NO TELLING MAMA NO, etc.” The lecture was a little lengthy, but it got through to Ellie. On our way into the room, Ellie kept saying, “I no cry, I no get spankings.” I think I’ll remember that approach rather than shaking my finger in front of Ellie’s face!
Dustin and I had a great Valentine’s Day on Saturday. Well, Red Lobster was okay, but we went in and out of stores all day long looking at stuff. The girls were at Meme and Papaw’s for the day, so Dustin and I were able to hit every store we’ve been wanting to go to without loading two kids, a stroller, two sippies, a diaper bag, a teddy, a binkie, a back up binkie in case the first binkie fell on the ground, jackets, well, you get the idea. I ended up with Jessica Simpson 4 1/2″ heels and Ed Hardy perfume and Dustin’s going to buy a piece of a gun. . .ahhh true love. You should have seen Dustin sitting in the middle of Dillard’s shoe department during its 70% off sale. . .priceless.
All in all, one of the best Valentine’s Day weekends ever. The girls are loaded with crackers, cookies and candy from Nana and Papa that should last until Halloween so we can pass out that candy instead of buying any (I’m kidding).
Mama and Emma doing the Valentine’s Day cards
Emma wrote her name and I did the other kids’ names. She’s getting really good at writing.
Emma using her stamper and Ellie being warned to get away from the table and do not touch that pen! Ellie and pens have a bad relationship that usually involve stain remover on my couch or her comforter and Ellie in the corner.
“Daddy’s Lil’ Heart Breaker” decorating a cupcake and cookie.
Mama: “Ellie do not feed Lily Kate. Lily Kate no eat cupcakes.”
Ellie: “Wilwey nwo eatch cwupcakech.” She had a mouthful of cupcake when she repeated me.
Some of Emma’s classmates on their squares.
I’m not sure if this is Emma’s friend Emilio or his identical twin brother Emiliano decorating cookies, but according to Emma, Emiliano has longer hair in the front. I still can’t tell them apart!
Just like at Christmas time. . .yum?!?
Emma: “I love parties. Parties are my favorite thing because you get to wear pretty clothes and decorate cookies. And don’t forget the punch, I love punch. . .”
Ellie: “Is that a sprinkle from your cupcake on the ground?”
Mama: “Girls, look at Mama so I can get a picture of you two.”
Emma, Graci and Ellie. Most of the little girls in Emma’s class have fallen in love with Emma’s little sister Ellie. Everyday when Ellie hugs and kisses Emma bye, many of the other girls want hugs too. Ellie, much like her Nana, has somewhat of a bubble. Graci and Keeley are the only other friend’s of Emma, Ellie will hug everyday.
Kylie and Ellie. Kylie is Khloe’s little sister. Khloe is in Emma’s class. Kylie played with Ellie during the party and kept her entertained. I’m pretty sure Kylie, Khloe, Emma and Ellie will be playing alot with each other this summer. Can you say those four names three times fast??
