Hello there Monday.
Here’s what’s been going on around here :).
Ahhh! This was my sweet girl on her actual birthday (September 15!). I feel like she woke up and even looked older! What in the world?!?! She requested her daddy’s Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Pancakes for breakfast and he was more than happy to oblige.
A few little things to open before heading to school.
Look at my seven year old! I can hardly stand it :).
Side note, she said seven was the age where big girls start wearing jeans, so weeks ago she asked me to buy her a pair and she held on to them until this day. I don’t believe she’s worn a single pair of pants since she was two.
A quick selfie with my girl before she headed off to school.
And yes, I’m wearing those adorable leggings that I talked about on Friday because they’re super cute…even in the front yard ;).
My baby girl.
After school smiles :). Our friend Mark stopped by and brought her two gifts. She was so excited!
For lunch, we had Chinese food per Kensington’s request and for dinner, we had Japanese. She wore her birthday crown from school all day.
Too cool to take a pic with mom.
These girls were in heaven at dinner!
After dinner, she requested fro-yo with toppings. Done and done!
Are my kids the only ones who do this? We’ll be getting out of the car and I’ll give very clear and specific directions like “take your shoes off and head upstairs for your showers” and they hear this…
…pile on top of each other in the hallway until the bottom person starts screaming.
After her shower, she stayed up a few minutes later than the two younger kids and worked on her bead art while also watching a movie on her iPad…and she still wore her crown.
Saying goodnight to my seven year old :).
In other random Monday news…
…someone was super excited about being the Star Student at preschool last week.
And archery is the new favorite thing to do in our backyard :). Smith is going to be the next Robin Hood.
I know, I know…you have to make dinner tonight for the family. But what to make???? No worries…
