Hat’s Off to a Good Week

Due to the busy Easter weekend and some of our group being out of town, we didn’t have play group this week, so DD had to fill her time with other activities. She tried her hand at making a hat. She did pretty well, but she just couldn’t decide which way she liked it best.

Like this…

Or this…

Oh well, she’s cute either way and soooo stylish…matching stars and all. If you look really close, you can see DD’s drawing of Clifford the Big Red Dog.

Wednesday was our library day. The topic this week was Bunnies. The firemen read several stories about bunnies, and then the lady in charge (Ms. Sandy) taught them bunny songs. Amazingly, most of the songs mentioned shaking their little bunny tails. You know DD loved this! Anything that has to do with “Shakin’ in your pants!” (re: earlier posts)

This is a picture of her doing the Hokey Pokey…. “and you shake it all about.” You get the picture. (Cute overalls, Aunt Sherry). After all the shakin’ DD made a bunny puppet. Ms. Sandy really does a good job with our children. I guess it could be because she has 5 kids of her own! Next week, the topic will be “Flowers.” She mentioned that she might be letting the children actually work with dirt! DD may need to stay home next week! We took Desheng Darling with us to have our taxes figured on Thursday. When I told her where we were going, she said, “Oh, that has an 8 in it. I saw it on television.” That statement made very little sense to me until we arrived at the tax office. Once there she said, “See, that’s the 8 I meant.” She was referring to the ampersand (&) in H&R Block. Don’t ever think that kids don’t pay attention to commercials. Although she has no idea what taxes are, she knows that H&R Block is the place to go! I don’t even remember seeing the commercial, myself.
We met Auntie Anne, Matt, Jonathan and PawPaw for dinner last night at a restaurant about midway between our homes. DD had a great time. Matt and Jonathan always treat her like a princess giving her anything that she wants. This is a picture of her decorating cookies at a special table, just for kids. Matt and Jonathan made arrangements with the staff to allow her to do this. After leaving the restaurant we went to the local Wal-Mart and Auntie Anne took her straight to the Toy Dept. They pushed every button on the TRY ME toys. We must have spent 30 minutes in that dept. Can you believe it?? I know what you’re thinking…No, she’s not spoiled! Actually, she is, but we love her anyway.

PawPaw spent the night at our house last night. Daddy Darling took him to the airport this morning to catch a flight to Arizona to visit the Desert Rats. We hope you have a great trip, PawPaw!! See you next weekend.
