and Grandma's birthday cake. We are spoiled!
She wanted a purple cat for her birthday, but we could only find this grey cat with a purple ribbon.
I made these cupcakes and took them to Taylor's classroom.
She also loves "footie pajamas", as we call them. I had to find some in her size!
A big Thank-you-for-the-presents hug!
Here she is at school on her b-day.
So Taylor got invited to Brooklyn's (a school friend) birthday party. The date was set for Sunday 12-3pm. I asked Taylor what we did on Sunday. Then I asked her which choice Jesus would want us to make on a Sunday.
My sweet girl, without one word of complaint and without one moment of hesitation, said that the better choice would be to go to church. I was very proud of her.

I found this article that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints put out and thought you should read it.
Especially if you live in California.
Maren can do the pig-tail thing now!!! I love it.

We went in the backyard and planted a seed. We talked about how to nourish the seed so it will grow. Well, a week later we checked on our neglected seeds and had to talk about the consequences...the soil had dried up and our seeds were "dead".
Last but not least we always have a treat (that is corn bread and honey if you were wondering). This is a key element to a successful night.
Yay for Family Night!
Oh yes, and speaking of planting, I did plant a very late-in-the-season "garden". I planted at least 10 different things and only two are thriving. Sad. I have to work on getting my thumb green.

I'm a school Mom! I have loved going to help out on Thursdays.
I look forward to PTA meetings.Taylor's proud of her backpack. She picked it out herself.
She's doing great in school. We're proud of her.
