Party #2 started at 10:30. It was Alise's school party and I was there with bells on. I am so thankful that my job allows me the time to go to all her fun activities. Ms. K was there, too, visiting from her maternity leave. Alise was so excited to see me! All her little friends wanted me to sit by them and they wanted to see my camera. Alise's class had chicken nuggets, fruit, cheetos, and cheese for lunch. The reindeer cookies were a hit! Most of the students left with their moms after the party and I thought Alise would go into meltdown mode when I told her I had to go back to work for a meeting (I had been bracing her for two days). She ended up being okay with it when I promised that I would be back to pick her up at 3:00 and she wouldn't have to go to extended day.
Here are a few pictures, but they aren't that good. I couldn't convince the kids to step back because they were too close.
The "Three Amigos" are still together...Alise, Emma, and Allie.Alise and one of her best friends, Scout. By now you've noticed Alise's antlers. We were in the Dollar Store last night and she insisted that I buy her those antlers. I didn't really want to because I didn't think she would really wear them. It was the best dollar investment!! She wanted to sleep with them last night! She wore them all day at school. I said something to Ms. K at the party that I couldn't believe that she allowed Alise to wear them - they are so tall and distracting. She said that since it was more or less like a headband and as long as she kept it on her head, she could wear it. Whatever. I think she's the cutest Rudolph ever!
After I picked Alise up at school, we headed to get her haircut so the pig-tails are probably no more for a while. I told Tiffani to bob it off short and stack it in the back. It looks so cute!
Then we went to Target and boy, was it crowded! As soon as I walked in the store, I thought, "What in the world am I doing?" We shopped for about an hour and then we came home. Right now we're waiting for Wayne to get home so we can "revive" the "Horton Friday Night Ritual." Because it's so warm, yet again, here, he decided to wait and go to the camp tomorrow night. Chic-fil-a, here we come!
