Last week was "Bring Someone Special Day" at Kid's Day Out.
On Monday Grandma Odie came to be Lilly's someone special. Lilly was very excited that Grandma came to be in class with her. For someone special day they got to come in the class for the first thirty minutes and see what goes on in the class and then have a special snack.
Grandma read to Lilly before KDO started. Then we read a class book about the symbols of Christmas and then we did an activity together that tied into the book. (I can tell you what we did since I am the teacher in that room. I was also a little bit nervous about teaching in front of my grandma.)
Then they went and had a special snack.
Reid went out to have a special snack with them, too.
Lilly has asked if Grandma was coming with her every KDO day since then. She really liked having a special guest and I am so glad she got to come, too!
On Thursday it was Reid's special day and Matt came to be his special guest. They did a special craft and had a special snack. Matt said Reid refused to participate while he was there. On the note home it said, "Reid was so very excited to have his special guest today!" I showed it to Matt and he said, "Whoever wrote that is a liar! You can't trust them anymore!" We have laughed and laughed about that. I think he was excited Matt was there and was just acting out a little bit. ( ; And then, just like on Monday, Lilly got to go out and have snack with Daddy, too. We sure do our love our special guests and are thankful they are in our lives!
I snagged Matt up out of the dating pool and we got married 8 1/2 years ago! He is an amazing husband to me and awesome father to our two little ones. We are just a couple of Christian people trying to get closer to God, reflect Him better, and raise our children in His Word and His Way!! We are loving every minute of this busy/fun/blessed life!
This little princess is a mixture of sweet and sassy! She keeps us laughing with practically every word that comes out of her mouth. She can melt your heart with a smile and a giggle and then turn right around and keep you on your toes with some mischeviousness! Her facial expressions give away her every thought and we just couldn't love her more (but somehow tomorrow we will)!
This is our boy with the magic smile! He is a perfect mixture of sweet and snugglie and ALL boy. He is laid-back like his Daddy and full of energy like his sister. He is happy climbing and dancing or curled up reading a book with Mommy. He is always learning some new trick and we can't wait to see what he is going to do and say next!
My handsome man and I have been married for 7 years. We are the extremely blessed parents of Lilly and Reid. This blog documents our lives, allows the grandparents and other family to see regular pictures of the little cuties, and helps friends and family stay in the know about us! Overall, we are simply a God-loving family of four!
