Today, we had a lot of fun!! :)
We did several fun things and just enjoyed each other!
Here goes ~
Here the girls are making LEIs!
They are also making a frog pinwheel.
Each girl does part of the frogs and Madi did the flower center.
They were having a great time.
I love to see my children smiling and enjoying life!
Here Miss Sarah Faith is showing her lei!
She did a super job on it!!
Here's Madi Grace being silly as she strings up her lei.
She is such a HOOT!
Then our gifts to them for their baptism arrived today!
Their Bibles!!! Sarah's cover was too small so we're going to go exchange her cover tomorrow. :)
Madi already has hers in it's cover. Sarah Faith is holding her Bible up so we can see. It is a NIrV early reader for God's Princess.
They are both the same. :) Pretty too!
My Bible also came in but I thought it was going to be a small one to put in my purse - bought it online - and it's full size.
King James version and I had my name put on it.
Nonna & Popaw would like this one.
Hannah is eating some of the Sweetarts they brought them when they came for their baptism. Hannah accidentally got Sarah Faith's. They're all the same so I just told Sarah Faith to eat Hannah Joy's when she's ready for some! lol Hannah Joy helps herself around here!
The other three shared fruit cocktail together.
(our friend Brittany was here as you can see)
I put the pinwheel outside by the privacy fence when they were finished.
Here it is upclose. They did a great job! I love it!
Brittany took turns painting everyone's toenails. Including MINE!
The girls got theirs painted gold and I got mine red! She is such a sweet friend and a really good girl! We enjoy her company!
The girls wanted to take a picture OUTSIDE of them wearing their LEIs. This turned out cute, I think! The sun was so bright!
Daddy came home and gave the girls their allowance. This is the first week we've gone to allowance. They do chores and help me so much and they get $5 each per week. I'm taking them tomorrow to see if they find something they want to buy with it.
Hannah Joy got hers too - right in the middle of eating! LOL!
Each girl gives their BEST so each girl gets the same amount. We do not think it's fair to pay according to age as long as the child is doing their best to help also. Hannah Joy fights to keep her pile of towels to fold. She helps unload the silverware (other than knives, OF COURSE) out of the dishwasher. She helps clean up. She takes things to the trash when I ask her to or to the laundry basket when I ask her to. And she's SO excited each time she gets to do something.
We had a great day and plan on another great day tomorrow!
