star of the week, dr. suess, and a playdate!

when i was growing up, i was mad at my parents for giving me a last name that started with a "P". i was so envious of kids that were towards the beginning of the alphabet because they got to do everything first. well, i didn't marry up in the alphabet, that's for sure. so, now my kids have the same problem as i had. hopefully they will learn patience, something i still haven't mastered.

Avery was finally star of the week this last week! she was sooooo excited! she spent a very long time making her poster just right! we took photos of her room, and special photos of her American Girl dolls, too. she was very excited for a week all about her at school! during her week, she got to also bring a show and tell each day too! she chose to bring an american girl doll, her dental molds, a collector barbie, her pillow pet, and since it was a 4 day week, she gets to bring one more (yet to be determined).

on Wednesday, it was Dr. Seuss' birthday, so we had a blast going around town trying to find some stuff to dress up like the cat in the hat! We found the hat for $2, the bow for $2, shirt for $3, and tights for $2!

I wanted to get a picture of her with her Star Student board in the classroom!!!

on Thursday, we brought home one of Avery's good friends, Kylie, from school for an American Girl playdate! They had such a great time, and played all night long!

At 9 o'clock, we finally said it was probably time that we take Kylie home, and our girls did not want to let her go! so glad they had such a great time!

Fun times at your house!

Do you ever play with your girls? I did but sadly they don't even remember now. My pretend name was Charlotte and even though they don't remember, I DO. It was totally fun for me to have a second childhood with all of the cool toys I'd wanted as a little girl. One thing the girls do remember is that our basement/play area ROCKED! Looks like yours does too!

Fun for me to remember. Thanks, Jennisa!
