A good time was had by all!!  She loves having all her friends over and we were so happy everyone shared in this special day!!

Another something special happened on that day too.. Savannah tied her paci to her balloons and let it go to heaven to be with all the babies who need them.  This is the last thing she has held onto that really needed to go.  She was such a big girl.  I was so proud of her. This was a very tough time for her. The paci has been her source of comfort for 4 years but she knew it was time to let it go and kept telling me she was going to do it when she turned 4 and she was true to her word.  The first attempt was a fail but we tied a few more balloons to it and off it went.

Of course it helped there was a pile of presents waiting for her when she let it go.  Nice trade-off don’t cha think..

The end to a great birthday

 

 

 

Later that night when it was time to go to bed she was sad and cried ” mommy I miss my paci” and I told her it was ok to miss her paci and she responded with ” I don’t want to be 4 anymore”…  After a few rough nights she has not looked back!!

 

 

 

Last Day of Preschool 2013

Standard

Wow I can’t believe the end of the school year is here.. It has been so great.. Ms. Kelly & Ms. Holly have truly been a blessing to have as Savannah’s teachers.. She has grown so much over the past year.  Looking forward to moving ahead but kinda sad to leave them behind. I think Savannah is kinda sad too.

Miller Street Recital 2013

Standard

Crazy busy week and of course there has to be a recital thrown in there too.  Savannah‘s dance class at Miller Street has come to an end this week too.  So sad all the endings but looking forward to new beginnings.  And at the end of every dance class is a Recital and Savannah’s was tonight.    She doesn’t love her dance class but she LOVES being on the stage so needless to say she was excited.

I have a short clip from her rehearsal

 

We got to the recital just in time so I thought.. Unfortunately mommy got the times wrong and we barely made the show.  Mommy & Nini made it but Daddy, Cindy, Mimi, Uncle Steve, Justin, Jordan, Ashley, Mark, Maria & Mercy missed it.  But I want her to know they came.  I felt awful..  Mommy will be double checking the schedule next time!

End of Year celebration 2013

Standard

Wow.. I can’t believe the end of the school year is already here.. It has been an amazing year. Savannah has had to of the most awesome teachers and we are sad to be leaving them.. I sure hope the teachers she has next year can live up to our expectations. Ms. Kelly & Ms. Holly has set the bar high.  Today the kid’s celebrated their year by have a party.  It was supposed to be a water park party but alas the weather had other plans for us.  We stayed in the gym and I don’t think they minded one bit.

Piercing

Standard

Since Savannah was born I had made up my mind that I would not get her ear’s pierced.  I felt that it was her body and that should be a decision that she would make on her own.  Plus she is forever putting things in her mouth and I certainly didn’t want to take the chance of a swallowed earring.  AND not to mention it hurts.  I mean it doesn’t hurt forever but it does hurt.

Savannah and I started out the day running errands.  It’s the last week of school and we have a packed week ahead.  We have several birthday parties to attend and presents that need to be purchased.

We stopped by Pandora to pick up our dear sweet friend Miss Wanda a birthday present.  While we were there Savannah asked the woman if there was “anything here for me” to which the woman replied ” are your ears pierced”.  Noooooo I don’t want my ear’s pierced.  I have told Savannah all along that it would hurt and that it wouldn’t last long but that it wasn’t going to feel good.  Kinda like getting  a shot in your ear.  I didn’t want to lie to her and her get in there and be mortified and think I lie to her so I chose to tell her the truth.

Well after I little trip to Pandora we had one more stop to pick up another gift.  After we were done I remembered that Claire’s was at the end of the shopping center so I headed towards Claire’s.  I told her she didn’t have to get it done but I wanted her to see what they would be doing so she would know in the future.  So off to Claire’s we go.

Once we got in the sale’s associate came over and gave Savannah a little tutorial about ear-piercing.  Once she was done she pulled out all the shiny PINK earrings and showed Savannah what she could choose from if she got her ear’s pierced.  And Savannah replied “ooooo I’ll have the pink sparkly heart earrings”. lol  I explained she couldn’t have them unless she got her ears pierced.  She sat there for 2.3 seconds and said ” OK I’ll do it”.. I was shocked.  But way to suck it up to get what you want..lol

So of course the store got slammed as soon as she decided she would do it but luckily by the time she had time another associate had come in and they were able to pierce them at the same time..  It was a little traumatic and she was a little dramatic but she’s very happy with them now and glad she had it done!!
