My birthday plans went from going to a hotel for the night, to going to dinner and a movie, to just going to dinner, to staying home to paint! (my choice of course) So we took the kids to grandmas Friday evening and started painting both their rooms. It didn't take us long at all. We finished up the stripes in Madd's room on Sat. morning. I was really happy with how they both turned out, I esp. love the shade of pink in Emmas room.
After all this we went to DQ for blizzards. The kids are just like Mark-in LOVE with icecream!! So they were super duper excited to go; as we sat there eating our treats Emma looked at me very honestly and said, "mom, the next time it's my birthday I don't want to have a party. I just want to come to Dairy Queen!"
