our weekend

Kennadie got a little radio with a microphone for Christmas & the song Bubbly by Colbie Caillat is one of the songs on there that she sings along to. She immediately liked the song & learned the words in no time. Friday was sharing day at school & Kennadie picked her new radio to bring in to share with her class. She told me that she was going to sing Bubbly for everyone at school. I was surprised that she would even say this as she can be pretty shy & isn't too comfortable with being the center of attention. When I picked her up from school, her teacher greeted me at the door & told me that she sang for everyone. I was so proud of her!! I would have given anything to see her sing in front of her class! 

My best friend of over 15 years has three girls, all very close in age, & we try to get all the kids together as much as we can. Kennadie loves being with them & she is completely herself with these girls. We have had them here for a sleepover before & all four of them constantly ask when they can have a sleepover again.We had plans to go bowling Friday night with them but we decided to have them for a sleepover instead. Kennadie immediately started running around the house, smiling, & talking a mile a minute. She was so excited. 
The girls played the entire time-with dolls, dress up, they had a tea party, they sang like little rock stars, & they giggled in bed. 
The girls made their own ice cream sundaes covered with M&M's & warm chocolate sauce, & they piled on the whipped cream.
Other than taking pictures, I left them alone to do their own thing most of the time. Right before we were going to start getting ready to wind down with a movie before bed, I found Kennadie & Leah sitting quietly in her room having a tea party-sipping on miniature tea cups together & with their stuffed animals. There was something about watching them that melted my heart. It was precious. 

The room was quiet a little after we started the movie & then all of a sudden Leah started crying, saying that she wanted to go home. Luckily, we convinced her to stay but the girls were up every few hours all night long-one crying to go home, one that snuck out of the bedroom to play downstairs, Kennadie woke up at 2am because she was getting pushed off the bed, & all four of them woke up crying at 7am. It was a rough night for all of us, but soo worth it. 

For breakfast, I made them pancakes & fruit bowls & then we all headed outside to play in the snow until the girls were picked up to go home. I am so glad Kennadie has these girls in her life that are like family to us & that she gets to have these experiences at such a young age.
