Valentine's Day Pictures ( A little late!)
So I know these pictures are a little late, but I had to post them, mostly for my family to see. But also because I have been meaning to write about Hallie's Valentine Party at school and the cutest thing that happened there. So all morning I was telling Hallie about her Valentine Party and Mag kep saying, " Hallie- party . . . me, too?" I said, "yes, you get to go to Hallie's party, too". This is a huge deal for Mag because she wants to do EVERYTHING that Hallie does. When we got to the party, I was cracking up b/c Mag was acting just like she was one of the older kids. She jumped into musical chairs and they couldn't figure out why the numbers were off, b/c Mag just blended right in. So once we figured it out, Hallie held out her hand and said, "Here Mag, come play with me" She led her through the game and helped her understand the rules. Then they played a game where they had to find a certain color of heart that was hidden in the room. Hallie found two hearts each time and gave one to Maggie and told her to take it to the teacher. She let Maggie help her make her animal sounds for animal charades. I was so impressed! It was so cute. Hallie was being such a great sister. They aren't always that agreeable, but they are really starting to get along and Hallie does such a great job with her "little tagalong!" Just the other day, Hallie was kind of sad that I don't sing her the potty song after she goes potty. (It is a really silly song that we sing to encourage Maggie) anyway, after I explained to her that she was a pro at going potty and I used to sing her the song and now we are trying to teach Mag, she was instantly satisfied and runs into the bathroom to sing for Maggie everytime she goes. I love it! I love that they are friends and that they are getting old enough to really play together and love each other! Sorry, kind of a different post, but I was just watching them play today and remembering the Valentine Party and I was so thankful for what I have.
