Some Friday Favorites

Just playing catch up here...the first pics were taken last week before Lily's dance class. There are actually a couple new girls in the class now, but they hadn't gotten there in time for the photo shoot. Besides, these 4 girls have been there from the beginning and truly have become friends. Their recital is in two months! Yay!










Then, I had to post some pictures from Saturday's daddy/Lily trip to Home Depot. (just for you, Kim)...she made a planter box. Then they headed over to the garden section and bought a couple plants for it. Lily couldn't wait to show me my "pwesents"...














Lastly, these pictures were taken on Monday ("famiwee day"). Jay came home from work at noon so we could spend the afternoon together. The weather was beautiful, so we went downtown for lunch, walked around, grabbed a coffee, and spent some time at the bookstore. When we got home, Lily's friend Laney (from across the street) came over for a few...always a nice surprise. We had SUCH a sweet day together as a family. When I was leaving for work that nite, Lily asked "Is famiwee day gonna be over?" She seemed so sad. She gave me a huge hug and told me she'd miss me...I assured her that every day is family day around here. This seemed to cheer her right up. That's my girl. My happy girl.




Unfortunately, the weather is back to chilly and gray. But, we're patient. Hoping next week will bring the sun again.




Have a great weekend, everyone.

Love the little planter. It is always fun for a little girl to have daddy time. Just FYI the flowers on my girls toes are stickers for nails. It think I got them at Target. My girls love them, we use them everytime we paint nails.

The planter is great. That is neat that Home Depot does that. LOve the pics of Lilly, she's a doll.

Michelle said...

What great friend pictures!! They look so cute together! My oldest daughter (18) has her recital coming up in June, also. She has been dancing since she was 3, so this will be her 15th. recital. Where does time go? I will probably sign Ella up for dance in the fall, because she is always doing ballerina steps....but I don't look forward to starting with the recital thing again. : )

Hope you guys have a wonderful week-end!!!

too cute...love the planter box....

Mommy Spice said...

One thing on Spicy Girls prayer list is to be able to take ballet/dance. She's wanted this for several months now, but in our situation, we have not been able to sign her up for a class. We agree in prayer with her that when we get moved, we'll find her a dance class. I love looking at these pictures and can't wait to see my spicy girl at her first dance class.

Gee she does better at building things then I ever will.
Love the idea of famwie day!
Are you sure she is not actualy about 16? She is wise beyound her years.
Tell daddy to get the shot gun loaded to fight off the boys.

Oh, I haven't had a Lily fix in a while (so busy unpacking). Great pictures! I love her Home Depot projects. I could use some of Lily's planter boxes in my yard. Right now all I've got is a huge mud pit!
