We all had a wonderful Valentine's Day filled with loving and sweet treats. Drew and Elson spoiled Emily and I with beautiful flowers and the twins had a great time at school exchanging valentines with friends.
The BIG event for kindergarten at South Highlands is the Literary Ball. All of the children dress-up as their favorite literary characters. The twins went as Dr. Seuss' Thing 1 and Thing 2. The principal (dressed as a fairy godmother) introduces each child after they performed a dance as a class. It was adorable. After the performances and introductions, the children attended the "Under the Sea" party. The biggest hit of the party was the live goldfish on each table.
Elson and I had our first Mother and Son Dance at East Ridge Country Club. Sweet Elson was so nervous that it would involve me kissing him in front of his friends all night. I think he was pleasantly surprised that it was kid food, a photo booth and a dance party. Needless to say, with those things involved we had a blast. We even managed a dance off. He is such a joy to my life.
It's been a few years since it REALLY snowed in Shreveport. When we woke up Tuesday to a yard full of about two inches of snow we were VERY excited. Emily and Elson both said their favorite part of the snow day was building a snowman.
