Field Trip













This year's field trip was to Old MacDonald's Farm.  Gabby insisted that we allowed her to ride the because because of the issues from not riding the bus last year.  Since it was much closer than the zoo last year, we allowed her to ride the bus. She also requested that we BOTH attend the field trip and of course since we are both wrapped around her tiny perfect fingers, we obliged to this request. However, Michael and I were both quite sick.  After an hour or so Michael went to rest in the car, since I was on the mend and he was feeling terrible.  Gabby adored spending the day with Bella and Leah her friends we were assigned to spend the day with.  They rode the train, rode the pony twice, fed all of the animals, went down the slides, and the favorite attraction was a huge mound of dirt that they all played in.  It was a beautiful day and the kids really seemed to enjoy the field trip.  Finally, they gathered with their class, chose a pumpkin, and then we took her home early from school for a bath and some fun at home with our extra time. The finale of the day was Gabby getting a chance to get to know two of the deer.  They ate out of her hand and allowed her to pet them.  She thought this was a magical moment.   It was great having a field trip near by and we felt so blessed that we could both be there to experience the day with Gabby.

Rock Star Party

Gabby's party was everything she imagined it.  The 22 girls enjoyed getting their hair and make up done.  Then they all put on their head set microphone and then headed onto stage and enjoyed performing their favorite songs.  The girls seemed to really like the party that Gabby planned.  After cake and gifts the girls went back to the stage for an encore (or 5).  A few of the moms at the party even attempted to escape from one of our escape rooms.  Gabby seemed to love having the run of Escape Artist and showing off the rooms to all of her friends.  It is amazing how many people love and care for Gabby.  We are so grateful for all of the friends and fun that was had at her party!  













Happy Birthday Grandma!!

Today is Gabby's Grandma's birthday! We were very lucky that we saw Grandma close to her birthday so we could celebrate together.  We all really enjoyed seeing Grandma and Grandpa, especially Gabby.  It took her about 5 minutes to warm up to them, but then it was hugs, kisses, and showing off for the two and a half days they stayed with us.  We celebrated Grandma's birthday with a quiet dinner and a birthday cake; although it was Grandma's birthday cake, I think Gabby thoroughly enjoyed it more than even the birthday girl! Grandma graciously gave Gabby the large white chocolate square with her birthday greeting written on it.  Gabby took large bites into it and LOVED it!




The day they were leaving Gabby and I took Grandma to Chik-Fil-A (to see Gabby in her element) for lunch.  While we all ate our chicken nuggets Gabby grabbed Mommy's drink and took big gulps, because she is too big for a juice box.  Then, once she was bored with her lunch she began waving at each…

Deep In the Heart of Texas!

Gabby's dance recital theme this year was "Texas."  Gabby's tap and jazz class chose "Deep In the Heart of Texas!"  Gabby worked extremely hard to learn her dance over the past two months and I must say she did amazing! I loved watching her put on a big smile and shake her hips in her tutu while pumping her heart in the dance.  She did very well and seemed so confident while performing on stage (although that wasn't truly the case).



Yesterday at the dress rehearsal Gabby heard people laughing (because her dance is so stinking adorable) and Gabby was very upset that people were laughing at her.  I calmed her down after ensuring her everyone loved their dance and were just being interactive because they were enjoying singing along \the song and clapping when while singing.  They ran through their dance twice on stage and did amazing the second time, but I think the fact that they ran through their dance twice made Gabby feel like they weren't doing i…
