Presents’ Day!

On Monday, when Isabella woke up–Sam told her it was President’s Day but since it sounded like Presents’ Day–she should be able to get a present! I was off of work on Monday so as soon as Sam got home—we had a family day! We went out to eat– and then went to a couple of different stores so Isabella and Landry could get a couple of small presents! They each got a new book and then each got to choose a  toy! Landry chose a helicopter that flies and Isabella chose a “girly” dr. kit. These toys and books were very inexpensive, but the price did not matter at all to Isabella and Landry–this was such a fun family day! I loved this day that we all spent together and hope that it will turn into a tradition! Hope you each had a great “Presents” Day as well!

We also had such a fun Valentines’ weekend! On Thursday, we went to the Victorian Tea Party at the library! Isabella and Landry got all dressed up and we had the BEST time! Their picture made it onto the front page of the Lifestyles section of the Commercial Dispatch on Sunday! If I must say so myself–it was precious! Then on Friday, my mom had a party for her grandchilden at the Fashion Barn! It is so wonderful that I get to be with them during the day, and I am so appreciative that my mom goes above and beyond to do special things for them while they are at work with me! She plans activities, does projects with them, brings cookies to decorate, etc.  They are just like me—they LOVE Holidays! We make such a big deal over them and Valentines and Presents Day were no exception! Sam was so sweet–he got me some beautiful roses and let each baby pick something that they wanted to get for me for Valentines and I love what they chose! Isabella wanted to get me some “soft lotion” I thought that was so precious—she also got me some candy and a Tinkerbell card! Landry wanted to get me a bridge so I wouldnt ever have to walk in mud! How precious is that? Well, as you can imagine–WalMart was fresh out of bridges on Saturday–so he ended up getting me some candy and a Cars card! The sweetest part though is that on Sunday when we were getting out of the car for church–Landry and I had this conversation:  Landry said—is it muddy outside of our door mama?    And I said—well, even if it is–it doesnt matter—I will carry you! And he said–I tried to get you a bridge at WalMart where you wouldnt ever have to walk in the mud –but they didnt have any!   OHHHH!   My heart melted! I love those babies!

  6. Erika, I almost called you when I thought that Savannah might have broken her collar bone, because I immediately thought about Isabella & thought maybe you could give me some advice! It was Friday night though, and I decided I would just go ahead & take her to the ER! Better safe than sorry! I was surprised when the Dr. told me it was broken though, because she was being so good & hadn’t been crying for a while. I’m glad I took her! Fortunately, it isn’t a “bad” break, so she just has to wear a sling & not a brace. She has been playing like usual & is doing great! I’m so thankful! I just have to keep her and Isaac from running around, jumping off of things…you know how it is!

  9. fantastic put up, very informative. I’m wondering why the opposite specialists of this sector don’t realize this.
    You must proceed your writing. I am sure, you have a great readers’ base already!
