Our morning started bright and early. Emily usually likes sleeps in but she was up before 7:30am today! I did hear a rumor that Grace may have helped her out with that. ;0) She loved her new ballet outfit that I hung up on the dresser.
Grace drew this ballerina picture for her sister. She worked all of yesterday afternoon on it. Grace also let Emily wear her favorite dress to Vacation Bible School this morning.
Clarice over at Storybook Woods posted about the cutest dollhouse book recently. The story takes place in a Victorian dollhouse. It is Annabelle's birthday and her mom has hidden wrapped presents throughout the house that you have to try and find. We gave the book to Emily this morning and she found the first present in the kitchen hutch. She was so excited to discover that I had done the same thing in our own kitchen hutch! Throughout the day we would have her read a few pages and then find a gift hidden behind a vase, on the bookshelf, in the bathroom cupboard, etc, just like in the story!
Emily chose potato soup, corn on the cob and chicken drumsticks for dinner. The cake was vanilla with pink vanilla frosting. We had a wonderful day together and she has lots of new things to keep her busy! Happy Birthday Emily!
