I hope you all are having a wonderful Mardi Gras? How did you choose to celebrate the day? Drew, Blair and I ended up going to Evie’s school and giving a presentation to her first grade class about Mardi Gras! We took them beads, made and brought king cake, and did a quick little slide show about everything Mardi Gras. I think they enjoyed it! We spent the rest of the day relaxing, playing with Georgiana, cooking, baking, and just spending time with family. It was a great day! 🙂
Yesterday, after spending the majority of the day driving, we (Blair, Bob, Evie, Gigi, Drew, my mom, and I) went to a young authors presentation for Evie at her school. It was really cute!
Evie posing with her first book. Written and illustrated by herself!
Her teacher projected the books onto a screen, so that the kids could read them and the parents/audience could see the illustrations as well. A cute idea! I got these pictures of Evie’s book as she was reading it. Sorry that they aren’t perfect, I had to snap them super fast because Evie was reading so fast! 🙂
And of course, as if the young authors weren’t enough in the way of entertainment, we had this cutie on our hands:
She has grown so much since I saw her last! So cute and full of personality! 🙂
She even gave a big round of applause for all the aspiring authors. 🙂
Of course, my favorite, is when she gives me cutie little kisses. 🙂
