Saturday, March 16 -- Gram and Grampa are here, but we need to get to bed because the leprechaun is coming!
Sunday, March 17 -- What a mess! Woke up to a crazy mess from that leprechaun!
Sunday, March 24 -- Palm Sunday
Sunday, March 31 -- Easter! The Easter Bunny came and brought us some really cool things!
Thursday, April 4 -- Class field trip. Mommy chaperoned! We went to Portland to see a live production of the story book "Click Clack Moo, Cows That Type."
Friday, April 5 -- I lost my first tooth! It was reallllllly loose and Mommy said "pop it out," so I did!
Saturday, April 6 -- Hooray! I woke up to a gift from the Tooth Fairy, and after bath time and brunch at Cracker Barrel, the whole family headed to NJ for my cousin's christening. Exciting! We stayed in a hotel with room service and Daddy ordered me pancakes at 10 pm. He's the best.
Sunday, April 7 -- Christening. There was a big party and we drove back to Maine late late at night. It was fun to get all dressed up and play with other kids, though.
Monday, April 8 -- Mommy and Daddy let me sleep late because last night was a late drive. We got home after 1 am so Mommy said waking up at 6 for school would be too much. I slept really late and Daddy and WHM and I went to lunch. It was a family date, except we missed Mommy. Then Daddy took me to ballet class this afternoon.
Tuesday, April 9 -- Today was a regular school day.
Wednesday, April 10 -- Baton class! I am getting ready for my very first competition at the end of April.
Thursday, April 11 -- One more day until vacation!
Friday, April 12 -- Last day of school until vacation! It is soooo cold out, and Mommy and I had to get up early to buy cupcakes for my class on our way to school. Then on the way home, we stopped at the store to buy a cake for Daddy. It's his birthday tomorrow, too. But it's snowing out! I can't believe it is snowing!!
Saturday, April 13 -- I turned six today -- and got my ears pierced! I picked where we went for lunch but I picked "mine and Daddy's" favorite restaurant. Happy Birthday to us! When we got home we had birthday cake.
Jen here again... Let's recap. In less than one month's time, CAM had treats from the leprechaun, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, and her birthday.
We've got one lucky little girl over here, and she is THRILLED beyond belief by all the good stuff that's been happening lately.
This week has been our spring break, and here it is already Thursday and I can't believe how little I have accomplished on my mighty to-do list ... but let's face it: it's been worth it. (Just don't ask me next week how stressed I am to still have an unpacked, messy house, okay?! Thanks!)
In the meantime, we are busily planning CAM's birthday party. We couldn't do it on her birthday weekend or the one following because those weekends bookend Spring Break. (We thought that was a sure way to ensure that people were busy, and since we have really only her class to invite, I didn't want a heartbroken little girl if no one could come.) The weekend before her birthday, we were in NJ, and the weekend after the weekend after, CAM has her very first baton competition. So we've pushed back to May. The only thing we know so far is that we're having a Fancy Nancy party ... it won't be quite the Strawberry Shortcake extravaganza, but I am doing to do my best to make it as wonderful as possible. Stay tuned!!
