Here are April's and my big Thing 1 and Thing 2.
They got to make Fox on Socks and eat cake.
They got to visit the balloon man and the Cat in the Hat. They had so much fun. I have never been that into Dr. Seuss, but teaching preschool and having an emerging reader has made me change my tune a little bit. Patrick LOVES Dr. Seuss, and on his tuck in nights, he always reads Green Eggs and Ham. The girls love his funny voices.
We have had Community Helpers month at school during March, and I got to dress up in a Fire Fighter's Uniform.
Actually, Linds and I had to compete against each other in who could put the uniform on the fastest. It was comical.
Ansley wears ponytails now. She's potty trained; she sleeps in a big girl bed; she wears ponytails. She is sooooo big.
Last weekend on our only 2 warm days, I got Spring Fever and decided to decorate the house thanks to my friend Ashley's conglomoration of ideas that she posted on the_handmade_home. I love my banner of book pages and 3-d eggs.
We had our Spring Party and Easter Egg Hunt at Sunshine School, and it was freezing. I had picked out some cute little dresses for the girls together when I had dreams (delusions) that it would be Spring weather. Oh well, even though they were wearing sweaters, my little egg hunters still looked festive and cute. Their favorite thing to do at home is play Easter Egg Hunt. I have crushed many an egg underfoot during this funny-but-annoying game.
Daddy came to this party! Yay! Addison made him feel like a million dollars--introducing him to all of her friends and wanting to show him everything; Ansley--well, she didn't give him the time of day, acting shy and embarrassed. Bless them both.
My class had a brunch with breakfast casserole, cinnamon rolls, donuts, fruit, yogurt, and orange juice. Weren't the decorations precious?
We are enjoying our last week of March on Spring Break, having Addison's ear procedure, and preparing our hearts, minds, and baskets for Easter. Hoping for--and needing--some sunny weather.
