The day full of PINK

Valentine's Day happens to be my favorite holiday, not because of the overpriced candy and flowers, but mainly because pink is my favorite color :) - shallow, I know. This year will be extra exciting because the girls were invited to their first ever Valentine's party at their friends Calvin & Patrick's house. Kathryn is beside herself with excitement, asking every day if this is the day for the "birthday party". She and I have been working for the past week making valentines. Seeing my daughter enjoy crafting as much as I do really warms my heart :). She wanted to make them "all by herself" and as hard as it was for me to see her misplacing things, I let her. After about the third one she really got the hang of it and started putting them together a lot better than I thought she would be able to!

The finished product... She was so proud of herself. Every time she would finish one she would turn to me and say, "You never said 'dood job', Mom!!!" :)
Last night Kathryn came running into the bathroom where I was getting ready. She was all out of breath, and she said, "Mom, I have a sensational idea!!! Let's have some TANDY!!!" (candy) WHERE in the world did she learn the word sensational? I don't think I've ever said that word in my life! Crazy, crazy girl... She'll try anything in the world to get candy :)
