Madeline delivered Girl Scout cookies. She also worked at her troop's cookie booth at Carolina Pottery last Saturday. When I went to pick her up, the leaders said that she had been very diligent about keeping up with the cookie sales. She had made neat little tally marks on a sheet of paper. So everything was going well last weekend until this:
This is a note that Madeline put on the kitchen island Sunday night! Many of you may have seen this on facebook. Let's just say that mama was practicing some tough love. There were lots of tears and drama. Grandma came to the rescue and now all is well :-)
I found this cute idea online for homemade valentines and couldn't pass up the opportunity. Lydia and Margo gladly participated. Madeline was happy with her Wizards of Waverly Place valentines.
That night we had dinner in the dining room. I even pulled out the fine china. I used the dozen roses that David gave me for Valentine's Day as a centerpiece. Lydia was so excited about a candlelight dinner, soft music and fancy dishes that she put on an old ballet costume and "dressed up". She was practicing her best manners during dinner. She was so cute.
Here is my beautiful butterfly card from Lydia. She worked so diligently on it last night and made sure I didn't see it....she was hiding it behind her back when she asked me if she could have an envelope. Today is also her teacher's birthday. She also made her the perfect birthday card!
