My Girl Wants to Party All the Time

We are doomed to fail to live up to Jane's inborn high standards of festivity. Last Monday (the same day that she was begging me, "Please, pleeeease can we have a Martin Luther King, Jr. party with all of the cousins tonight?), she felt we were unacceptably tardy with decorations for Valentine's Day, so she enlisted Zuzu and they took matters into their own hands:

I was impressed.

They were so pleased with the first doorway curtain, they spent the next day after school putting up another.

Was Jane done? Certainly not. Here are the fruits of her labors from the day after that:

(If only she would direct the smallest bit of that energy toward making her bed.)

Next Monday, I will most certainly awake to enthusiastic shouts of "Happy Groundhog Day!" Thanks, kids, for giving me so much to celebrate.

Wow. Very, very impressive.

I'm sad at how often I rain on Mabel's parade (but astonished at how much of a parade there constantly is for me to rain on.)

You already showed me, but I didn't properly see them. They're awesome. Remind me to talk to Jane next time I'm stumped with party ideas.

(7 days 'til Groundhog Day!!)

Thanks for the comment on my MADE blog. Your kids are adorable. And that construction paper hideout looks too fun!

Simply wonderful.

Melissa came into the Fitness Center yesterday to reserve a park pavilion for her high school class reunion. I'm thinking she and Jane have that gene in common.

my kids are ALL about holidays - I think I'll let them look at your blog and they'll say - let's play with those kids! They think like us - they know how to have a good time!
