Love Overflowing


I was trying to think of cute gifts Emily could give her teachers for Valentine’s Day. I honestly can’t remember the website where I found the idea.
We made salt dough x’s and o’s, plus some hearts thrown in for good measure. Emily had a great time rolling out the dough and pressing out the shapes. After baking them, she spent a good hour painting them the next day.
The end result was super cute and the bonus is that it was a project that kept her busy for some time.

Stephen had a birthday

Man, he is getting old! I can only get away with saying that because he is two years older than I am. Still probably can’t get away with it but I am just saying it anyway.

Stephen celebrated the big 3-5 on the day after Valentine’s Day. He took the day off and got to spend some quality time with me and the kids. Emily had preschool that morning and her Valentine’s Day party so he really got to spend some good time with Zachary while I helped out with her party. We celebrated with a yummy lunch and dinner out. Grandma and Aunt Kristina came over later that evening for cake and presents. I hope Stephen had a wonderful day. I am so very lucky to have spent another year with him. He is a wonderful husband, father and provider. I am very blessed to have him in my life.

Teddy Bear Picnic Program

Emily’s preschool has an annual Teddy Bear Picnic Program. It’s a big deal and they practice for weeks. Unfortunately, it had to be pushed back a week due to the awful snow and ice we got but I think it just gave the kids some extra time to practice. It was so cute watching all of those 3 and 4 year olds sing.  They performed several songs and had cookies and punch as refreshments. I think Emily was more excited about the punch than anything.

Emily was the loudest in her class by far. I took a couple of videos and you can hear her above most kids. One of the parents of a classmate told me that they had a great video of Emily singing. What can I say? My girl is going to be a star! Watch out Broadway!
