I had a great night last night. I got a "little girl" fix and I loved it! Chelsea was home and wanted Austin's girlfriend "K" to come over, but she was at home caring for her little sister "E". We, of course demanded, uh I mean requested, that she come over and bring E with her.
E is adorable! She is very tiny and petite and reminds me so much of my girls at that age. She has this tiny voice and the cutest giggle and her laugh is contagious...and I loved it!
Chelsea, K, & E played with the dogs and to say the noise level was high is an understatement. Between the barking, squealing, laughing and shouting, the noise level was deafening...and I loved it!
Then we got out the boxes of artsy craftsy stuff that I have. It includes construction paper, rubber stamps, markers, glue, and glitter. We all made pictures - even me....and I loved it!
E helped me with my picture, which was 3 goofy stick figures (that were to resemble my kids lol) and some rubber stamped pigs with a cut-out sun and a horrible drawing of what was supposed to be a pine tree. E said in her sweet tiny voice "I know how to draw birds. I could draw a bird for you." So I passed my picture over to her and she drew a cute purple and pink bird. It was larger than the pigs LOL....and I loved it!
After we were done with our pictures, I was so excited to have a little girl who loved doing crafts (like my girls used to) that I wanted to keep her forever. Since I knew that'd be slightly illegal, I decided to indulge her (and myself) and teach her the fine art of making a paper plate bird feeder. She kept saying "this is cool" or "Do you know other things to make?" And I loved it!
The funniest part of the evening was when K showed us her finished picture. She used rubber stamp alphabets to make it. In case you can't read it, it says "My boyfriend said I had to pick between him and golf. I better get my clubs." LOL The funniest part of that is the goofy attempt at a sad face Austin has in this picture. They both love to golf, so no worries on having to choose.
When they left for home, I asked E if she'd come back over again sometime and she said she would...and...you guessed it - I loved it!
