This big kid got to stay for WHOLE day kindergarten rather than HALF day for the first time, because the Valentines party was later in the day... and my goodness was she excited :)
And so was I when I saw this sweet little girl with a sparkly hat and arm load of sugar hand me this...
Ah these are the moments... :)
Aunt Elizabeth came to pick Sammy up for their long awaited "date"... to... (drumroll please...)
CURIOUS GEORGE LIVE.
You might say he was a little excited!
After he left the sugar really started to kick in.
And these two had a blast just plain... laughing with each other... until finally Jacob proclaimed with certainty that he was going to marry his little his sister. To which Hannah replied...
"THAT'S RIDICULOUS JACOB! I LOVE YOU BUT YOU CAN'T MARRY FAMILY!"
And then she proceeded to stare intently at him through her cheerio (because what else are they for... really?)
Sugar started to wear off... the switch was made to pajamas... hat still intact.
Until the Curious George fan club arrived home even happier than imagined.
And so Jacob felt that he should relive his date with Aunt Elizabeth as well. :)
The smile was impossible to wipe from Sammy's face until... the unthinkable happened.
Yep. I know. Makes you cringe... doesn't it.
Don't worry. He was chattering about Curious George and the man with the yellow hat again in all of about 3 seconds. This took an remaining ounce of energy that Hannah had left straight away...
I know. The hat came off. This is serious.
And everyone went to bed... tired and happy as can be.
Tomorrow morning Hannah will have her big date with Aunt Elizabeth and she's so excited! Thank you Elizabeth for taking so much time out to make special memories with these 3! You are so wonderful!!!
I'm sure I'll post again tomorrow. I don't do well at keeping up with Christmas... Birthdays I do TERRIBLY with... but we sure do love Valentines day around here :) We didn't used to take much notice, but a few years ago the kids and I started a short tradition. It's not much but one that we all look forward to every year... it's that of a treasure hunt when they wake up in the morning for a small gift. I do enjoy an "event" to just plain love all over these sweet kiddos. They are one of the greatest and hardest to fathom expressions of God's love to me that I could ever imagine.
*** One final note: HAPPY BIRTHDAY KATIE!!! WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH :)
