At the chior performance with Mikayla

She is sporting some cute lavendar bows from Fig & Ruby kids (otherwise knows as...ME!) I am feeling generous and selfish all at once right now; selfishly I reeeally want to see photos of everyone wearing their bows and to make this happen, I am generously giving away not one but TWO $10.00 gift certificates to Fig & Ruby Kids! Go to the bow blog to check out the details!!!
The drawing is happening december 10th at 10pm so hurry up and get as many entries into the draw as possible!!!

We made these treats together for her to take to school. So easy, we just stuck 2 jumbo marshmallows in a stick, dipped them in melted chocolate and sprinkled them with non perils. She said they were a big hit and they tasted so good. (The rest of us didn't try them... We TRY not to feed our kids this kind of sweetness at home, I made exactly the right amount for school and no extras :)
Double bonus, today was report card day and grade 4 is the first year that the kids get letter grades. Mikayla was thrilled to have all A's and she made the principals list too! She reported to me that this was the best birthday ever. I was pleased to hear it!
We ate Mikayla's favorite dinner; mashed potatoes and home made chicken fingers. Maddie made the name cards. I let her use the paper slicer to cut the cards and my silver paint pen to write on the cards...all with no supervision. She did a great job!
There's my lovely girl :)
Happy birthday Mikayla, I love you so much. We've been together 10 years already(I always tell my kids "you and me, we've been together __ years, I know all about you!")! These have been the most purposeful, busy, exciting and fulfilling 10 years of my life!

Here's my little leopard! She sat so still at 7 AM to get her face painted. Minutes after I finished Maddie's face, she rubbed her face and smeared it all up. GRRR! She started crying...and crying.(if you know Maddie, you know she is a bit dramatic) The floods of tears made a huge mess of my pretty leopard girl's face! It took a while to get her to stop weeping and realise that her face could only be fixed once the tears stopped flowing. I fixed her up and we were on our way.
side note: Mikayla graciously agreed to forfeit her flamingo face painting fabulousness so that her sister could have her touch ups. What a nice girl, I love it when she is on my team!

Caleb is starting to have a little more fun with his baby sister...he plays with her a bit better which is really great!

She was really proud to add the yellow socks and shoes.
