Hailey was invited to her friend, Becca's (far right), 2nd birthday party. It was princess themed. All the girls were dressed in there princess outfits. It was adorable. Loved the games. The first game they played was find the poison apple (the red apple). After the game we cut them up and had them with lunch. It was the first time Hailey had ever been invited to a birthday party (that wasn't for a cousin).
Michael took Josiah to the AWANA games. His team won second place. Michael didn't take any pictures because I had the camera. Mmm, thinking maybe two cameras would be a good idea on days when we need to divide and conquer.Last week, the kids begged to have a tea party. We all dressed up and I ended up using it as a homeschool tool. First we made cookies to go with our tea and then I got out the fine china (Hailey's first time). We put on our best British accents and pretended that Josiah was a British soldier whom I (loyal to the English crown) invited to tea because he reminded me so much of my own son who had run away from home to join up with those "rascal rebels". We had a wonderful conversation, talking about actual historical events surrounding the American Revolution and working on tea manners. Don't mind my unpolished tea set! This was impromptu. The set was given to my grandma and grandpa for their 25th wedding anniversary.I didn't feel like putting on the whole costume. However the kids were thrilled when I put on my tea hat and Hailey's boa. This tea cup belonged to my step-grandmother. I love it!Josiah lost another tooth last Wednesday. Before he let me help pull it out, he asked me to write a letter to the Tooth Fairy. It said, " Dear Tooth Fairy, I want you to leave my tooth on my desk because I want to have it for show and tell. Please go ahead and leave a $1 and on Friday you can take my tooth. Love, Josiah" This kid knows how to work the Tooth Fairy. Being a mom and the Tooth Fairy can get complicated! I remembered to leave the dollar on Wednesday, but forgot to get the tooth on Friday. Luckily, Saturday morning I woke up before he did and remembered. I was able to sneak into his room and get the tooth. Whew!
Hope you all had a great week and I look forward to catching up with my blogging soon.
