As for what we did for Francesca's birthday, we decided to play it cool this past weekend because of Grandma's surgery and because of how cold it was (we were in the negative digits over the past few days). Since I was at the hospital most of the weekend, Francesca and Annabelle got to spend a lot of time with Daddy. They went to Dunkin Donuts every morning for breakfast and on Friday afternoon they all went to the store to pick up some ingredients to make some birthday cupcakes! Once the girls and Daddy came back from the store, we did some finger painting and marker creations while on Friday night (after the whole family stopped by the see Grandma) we went out for some pizza! Saturday night we did venture out in the cold to take Francesca to one of her favorite restaurants, Cooper's, to have a great 2.5 hour meal! (yes, you read that correctly, we were there for 2 in a half hours for supper and both kiddos we just perfect!) As for the rest of the weekend, we played "Disney's Scene It?" DVD game about a hundred times (it was left by Santa for the whole family to enjoy). She had such a nice weekend and I finally got some stuffed planned for this coming week. I know, it is not Disney...but I am thinking (and Daddy is too) that " the Disney thing"will happen sooner than we all think...
(sorry that the photos are a little out of sinc today)
Marker Creations too!
(just has to post this photo of our Annabelle...isn't she just so beautiful!)
Saturday night supper at Cooper's (wearing their pirate hats!)
And our Friday night pizza at The Library...
Even though we had a very emotional weekend, we still manged to have a little fun.
As for our "almost going to be 4 years old" birthday girl...she is currently watching (as I am typing this) the classic "Seven Brides For Seven Brothers" for which she saw the last 10 minutes of it the other night and wanted to see the whole thing. Lucky for us, I already had it on DVD! She is truly a girl after my own heart (and her Daddy's too - we both love watching the classic!)
