So, before the arrival of Sissy, as Lib likes to call her, we really wanted to do something special for our little girl. We told Libby we could do whatever she wanted for the day. I realize we were taking a risk here...I mean, what if she'd asked to go to China? She has, in fact, mentioned this before and has made it very clear that going to China is at the top of her list of things to do. Anyway, we lucked out; she wanted to go eat at the Hibacchi grill and to see The Princess and the Frog. Well, we took that idea and turned it up a notch. :) Lib is very fortunate to have the best aunt ever, Aunt Ellie. Aunt Ellie (and Uncle Brad too) offered to let Lib spend the night with them prior to our big day. They took her to see The Nutcracker, which you know was a hit considering she only asked to go to the bathroom once during the entire show. Then Ellie, aka Best Aunt Ever, made ornaments and gingerbread houses with the Libster. As you can see, Lib has mad gingerbread house making skills. The Hibacchi grill and the movie were both big hits, and overall her special day prior to being a big sister could not have been more special. :)

Hi everyone. Hope you are getting all your last minute shopping done. I just wanted to share yet another funny Libby story with you. Meet Brandon. He's one of my favorite kiddos ever. He's really more like a little brother/bff than a kid who once served as my first period helper. Anyway, Libby is in love.....with Brandon. Did I mention he's in college, and she's five? Needless to say, Lee is not so thrilled about this idea. However, a few weeks ago, Libby wrote this 'love letter' to Brando. I knew we were in trouble when she asked me how to spell the word 'wedding'. In case you can't tell, the stick figure to the left is him, and the one to the right is her....in a veil and wedding gown. Notice how she drew a 5 beside her to remind him of how old she is, I guess just in case he forgot. :)

This is a pic. of Libby and Jordyn. Jordyn is the daughter of my very best high school friend, Jennifer. They had a great time playing together...until it was time to share the one pair of dress-up shoes, but what girl wouldn't argue for a good pair of glitter shoes, right?

One more thing for today, and then I promise I'm done. So, earlier I told you about how funny Libby is. Did I also mention that she's friendly? So friendly in fact, that she can find a friend literally anywhere. She's not picky....she'll even be your friend if you're made of plastic and don't talk....or move.....or breathe, for that matter. Don't you just love kids?
And it was right around this time last year when I quit my beloved Lewisburg job to move. I went to pick up Libby after a long day of quitting the best job ever and was beyond down in the dumps. Well, Libby, the fixer, asked, "What's wrong, Mommy?"
I replied, " Mommy is just sad becuase she won't get to teach at Lewisburg anymore, Lib."
And then here's the Libby that I love, " Well, you know, the Indians KILLED Daniel Boone, Mom."
While doing my best to stiffle my laughter so as not to discourage future prophetic phrases from my daughter, I simply replied, "Well, when you put it that way, Libby, I guess today wasn't so bad."
Needless to say, she was pleased with my response.
So, point being, I cannot wait to see the sort of trouble my little one will get into in the years to come. And I don't think I will ever stop thanking God for giving me a front row seat to witness this very entertaining show I call Libby.
