Last Friday we celebrated Arbor day.
My sister and her two kiddos and Margaret joined us in the fun.
We read this book...
She only had it at nap time and bedtime, but now she is in a "big girl" bed and she can get to them whenever she wants. I put them up where she couldn't reach them and she was fine with that. But, last week was a bad week and I caved and let her have them. Shame on me, I know.
But it was BAD and I think that may be an understatement.
If you don't believe me, ask my sister who witnessed several meltdowns last Friday!
I keep telling myself she won't get married with it!
After they made their own trees ....and we put Mel and Keith down for much needed naps....we took the bigger kids outside to plant trees. Luckily, it was nice out and not raining like every other day recently.
They each took turns watering the tree...
I made apple tree cupcakes.
Brad said they looked more like shrubs.
Trees or shrubs, I thought they were cute...
