Our celebration

Friday, April 6, 2012
So, as I said in my last post, it has been 5 years since Kate joined our family.  We planned a little Mother-daughter celebration to mark the occasion.  Kate wanted to "go the the salon to get her nails done!"  Since this was a very special day, I agreed.  I picked Kate up a little early from school for this special treat so that I could fit it in on a weekday (she had a substitute and it was free play time so she did not miss anything!)

Kate was quite the hit at the salon.  All the ladies (clients and employees) just adored her.

Kate was so adorable.  I could not stop watching her.  I did have trouble getting good photos as I was having a pedicure simultaneously in the chair next to her with a fixed lens.

Her lil feet barely skimmed the water as she was so small for the chair!

She DID enjoy the pampering massage!

Kate could not decide between HOT pink and super glittery glitter.  So she got every other nail done in each color.  The girls back at school loved it.  They all ohhhed and ahhhed!

After the mini mani-pedi, I took her for a quick ice cream cone before we had to pick up Harry from school...

She chose cotton candy with gummy bears mixed in.  It was so melty.  She was covered in blue!

It was such a sweet few hours with my girl.
And true to her gracious spirit, she thanked me profusely and declared it "the BEST day ever!"

{she says everyday is the BEST day ever!}

We are off to see an interactive display of the Passion.
 I will be back this weekend with an Easter post.

Happy Easter and Passover!


P.S. Erika, here is a photo of her lil monkey toes. They are already chipped:0)
