Tomorrow is Ella's Valentine party at preschool and I signed up to bring the treat this time (I'm wondering if maybe I can sign up in advance for drinks at the next party?!). We had some left over frosting from all of Addie's birthday cupcakes, and we never made our sugar cookies at Christmas, so I decided to go for it today. Time had erased my memory of what an ordeal they are...despite the less intense decorating of hearts as opposed to various Christmas shapes...I'll just say I'm glad it's done and my kitchen is clean again!
We also has to get our Valentine's prepared to exchange in class (luckily there are only 7 other little kids so this wasn't too bad). The teacher encouraged them to write the names of their classmates on the Valentine's to practice their letters and Ella was so proud of each name she finished!
Addie found other ways to entertain herself...like looking through the sprinkles and running up to me saying, "Look, Mom!" and laughing...until she realized what I wasn't letting her eat yet...then her mood took a drastic turn.
Luckily for all of us Meema called and the girls were both in very talkative moods.
Any guesses which one Ella decorated? :-) I'll be posting the recipe on my other blog soon.
And some randoms from yesterday...Addie walking with Great-Frog when I went to pick her up after my appointment. Thanks Grammy for playing with her!
Addie trying to climb the wall...and then Ella nearly decapitating her when she tried to help.
And lastly, Addie getting Ella back for all the smothering hugs she has received throughout her life :-).
