Our week in review

Sunday: Tried to get a good picture of Lily and I for Mother's Day. Didn't happen. Jay took this picture of Lily being silly and rubbing my cheeks telling me "you're the best mommy EVER!" She tells me this a lot, and my response is always "You're the best DAUGHTER ever!" We probably make people sick. Oh well.






Wednesday: was cold and rainy. (yuck!) I wanted to stay in bed all day, but that wasn't an option. So, I asked Lily if she wanted to go to the store with me to pick out fabric for a couple of good-wish quilt squares. I have had this on my list of things to do for WEEKS. But, I am the opposite of crafty...so I do not ever set foot in stores like JoAnne Fabrics. BUT, I adore these 2 families that I have vowed to send a quilt square to - so off we went. Lily was very enthusiastic about "helping" me find the perfect squares. They were not what I would have picked, but she insisted that they were the very best patterns for her and her. She even had the woman who cut the square give her the extra material so she could wear it in her hair - Kim, look closely and you will see YOUR material...it might be the only look you ever get at it - you know how horrible I am at follow through. But, I have the squares here. Just have to write the wish and send them on their way. (whew) Oh, and while we were there we found the CUTEST umbrella ever, and had to buy it. Lily was happy as a clam walkin' in the rain with that...gotta love the simple things.











Thursday: The sun came out, finally! So, we had some fun outdoors. Went for a long walk in the wagon and checked out every last flower and weed along the way. And that night Lily was so excited to carry her dance gear to class in her NEW ballerina bag! And, of course, we couldn't get in the car to go until she had done several arabesques in the yard first.















That was our week at a glance...enjoy your weekend, everyone!

The umbrealla pics are darling.:) We bought a panda umbrella at walmart recently... lasted maybe 3 days with Ms busypants. She could not leave the thing alone. Open close open close
Our recital is tomorrow.:) Chloe had rehearsal tonight. When I see her dance I think of Lily and how much she loves to dance. Chloe loves it! Alot of the girls seem to be there for mom but Chloe is passionate about it like Lily:)
Have a good weekend :)

I cannot help but smile when I read how she tells you that you are the best mommy ever. I always think back to when we were in China. It is amazing what God can do with a little ones heart just by the love that we show them.
