Girl's Night Out

Abby and I went out on a date Friday night just the two of us. We were celebrating her wearing big girl panties. Even though were still having some accidents, she is doing great. So we went out to celebrate by going to dinner and to paint some pottery. We had so much fun together and it reminded me that I need to spend more time with Abby by herself than I do. Plus I'd forgotten how much easier it is to get out with only one kid. I loved watching her get into the painting of her rabbit. I painted a plate that we put Abby's hand on. She placed her hand down a little weird which is why it looks funny but I still love it. I love doing creative things and wished I had more time to do it. I think I'm going to take the kids back and do some things for the grandmothers. Anyway we will be doing it again. Abby really needs quality time with me and I need to give her that. I know I need it too.

Valentine's Party

Wed. we went to our annual Valentine party with some of our dear friends. The same group gets together for everything. It was so much fun watching the kids decorate their cookies and make their cards. This year the little ones got to be in on some of the fun too. Charlie couldn't wait to dig into his cookie and got it everywhere. Abby really concentrated on her cookie and they looked pretty tasty. Next year it will be really interesting with all the little ones really into everything along with the older ones. Should be fun!! Happy Valentine's Day!
