Life Right Now...

You know that feeling you get when you think your heart will just explode if you get any happier? Yeah...that's how life is for us most days right now.  Essie spends her days making us laugh, testing our patience, proclaiming her love for us, and begging to sleep in our bed. 

My favorite time of day is at the dinner table each night.  We of course ask Essie about her day and she often reciprocates with "Daddy...did you have a good day at your work?".

She loves to help us and this evening she rushed out to the garage to grab her "screwer" so she could help daddy hang the giant ruler we just got!  We've started rewarding her with stickers for good behavior and chores and it's working like a charm.  She will do ANYThing for a sticker! :)

We have quiet the artist...she came home today with a picture of her bff Camryn, Camryn's mom, me, her, and "daddy as a baby".  She also wrote letters to disneyworld the other day...she wrote one to Ariel and one to Rapunzel & Eugene!

Getting outside!

We had a beautiful weekend and Essie and the hubs spent the entire weekend outside.

Valentine's Day

On Valentine's Day, Essie had a big party at her school!  Travis got to attend with her and take pics...I was at my school with my kiddos getting ready for our own party.

That night we went to Chick Fil A for their valentine was our second time and we had a blast!

Valentine Box for a Princess

This year we had a blast making Essie's Valentine box for school as well as her cards.  She wanted a princess castle so we created one and she got to decorate it!  For her cards, she chose Princess for girls and we added a magic wand to each one.  For the boys, she chose Jake & the Neverland Pirates cards and we added pirate swords!

My Surprise Birthday dinner

Saturday (the day before my birthday) my parents came down and we had planned to go to my fav place for dinner.  When we arrived, we were greeted by a dozen or so friends who were there to surprise me!  We had a great dinner and I felt so special!

Two Jumpin Party Saturday...

We had a very unusual day today...Essie was invited to TWO birthday parties at the same place, Jumpzone.
The first one started at 10:30 this morning and it was a Star-Wars themed bash for her friend Trent.  They both go to Snugglebugs so all her school friends were there!  So much fun to be had! 

The second party started at 2:00 and it was a mermaid themed bash for her friend Lexie.  Lexie's mom and I teach together and the girls have become fast friends! 


Essie was exhausted after 4 hours of playing HARD and it was a BLAST of a day! :)
