Wear a Book

Today was "Wear a Book" to school day. I couldn't decide how I should interpret that and so it took me a lot of searching to do something that would be unique and fun for the girls.
They took me all night to make.

They literally wore books.

They decided how they wanted them on their shirts. So excited!

Our Weekend

Two of my sisters and some of their kids came down to visit this weekend. It was mostly wonderful!! While they were here, we went to the park.

We played in the backyard with cousins.

We went to the Shark Reef (blurry pics ahead).

GiGi found the glass bottom and decided to lay on it.

We had a little meltdown when Miss Z was leaving. The girls miss her and wanted her to stay so badly.
We love having cousins (and sisters) here to play.

Love Day

The girls weren't allowed to make a regular valentine box for school this year. They were given an assignment that they had to make their box around a book. They had to write somewhat of a book report and then make their boxes into the book. Quite different and although at first I was annoyed, it actually turned out to be a fun project for the girls.
Jo Jo picked out "Pinkalicious".
and Annie "Fancy Nancy"
We turned Fancy Nancy's box into a clubhouse and Pinkalicious had a mailbox. The girls loved decorating them! These are all the sides.

The table for breakfast.

Some decorations I've made.

For dinner I got everything ready and the fam ate at Cupids Crazy Café. They also got to wear fun crowns. Even Dan got in on the fun! Good thing he is ok with it, because he has five of us crazy ladies surrounding him. :)

Dinner was really fun. Everyone had to pick numbers and put them on a sheet of paper menu. Then whatever number they "ordered" is what they got for that course. (i.e. Dan got a fork, napkin, and drink for his first course.) The crazies were loving it. Well until the "dessert" portion of the meal and then we had a very major meltdown. Jo Jo got a fork and spoon for her "dessert". Oh man that was so annoying and tiring trying to explain that she still got everything that everyone else got just in a different order. Almost ruined my night (she wouldn't stop crying).

It has been a fun day and I am in love with my Valentine. He is amazing and he treats me wonderful.

Love you babe!!!

Air, Land, and Water

The girls worked on a school project for the past couple weeks. Well they should have been working on them the past couple of weeks, but because I am who I am, they didn't start working on the actual project until this week (we did get the paper done earlier). ha ha
The project was all about natural resources. They had to write a paper and then make something that showed the 3 resources: air, water, and land.
They got to pick either Dan or I to help them and then together we picked out what the project should be.

Annie picked Dan and they decided on a diorama. It turned out really nice and Dan has said that he wants to do another one.

Jo Jo picked me and since she is such a great artist, she painted. She did great.

They also had to stand up in front of their class and give a presentation of their project. I was able to go watch them and they were so quiet and shy and cute. I just wish I would have gotten a picture of them with their project.
