Last weekend Ellie had a friend’s birthday party to attend. That’s always hard around our house. My girls are glued at the hip so when one of them is invited to a party and the other one isn’t, I usually have one pretty bummed out daughter. So to cheer Miss Addison up, I told her that we would have a special party. Just the two of us. A party to make her Valentine box for school. Addison decided we would wear our house shoes and call it our “Valentine box house shoe decorating party.” So last Saturday afternoon Kenny took El to the birthday party. Kole took a nap. And Addie and I took up some serious Valentine box decorating. In our house shoes of course.
This child of mine is so different from her sister. I remember helping Ellie with her Valentine box for Kindergarten. Ellie was so happy to have my help. She would have let me do the whole thing if I would have wanted to. Not Addison. This girl wants NO help. She wants to do everything herself. She always has. She has a pretty hard working, determined, stubborn little spirit. That sometimes drives me straight up a wall. And other times I love and admire like crazy.
I also picked up these adorable matching sacks for my girls to carry their Valentines in. Target! $2.00 each! Love them. And I love Target. A fact that’s worth repeating.
