Happy Thursday! We’re chugging right along here at the Kissel house.
Matty had two special helpers in his office the other day. Penelope used to have a bed in his office, but she kept eating it! haha I finally got fed up and threw it away . . . and she promptly claimed this chair as her new snuggle spot.
We often put Penelope’s food and water bowls in the dishwasher in the evenings. The other night I found her sitting on her empty mat like this . . . poor thing needed one more sip of water!
My parents were finally able to come over this past weekend to celebrate my birthday. Instead of a cake, we decided to get donuts from Dom’s Bakery, which are the very best donuts in the world! There were only six of us, so some of these went to neighbors and some went to Zack and Carla’s house since they weren’t feeling well and couldn’t make it. Trust me, I would have eaten anything that was left at my house! 😉
The girls also got some Valentines from Oma, Papa, and Aunt Carla. Please note that Emily got into the chocolate candy right before this picture was taken.
Valentine’s Day came bright and early . . . these girls are always up for opening gifts, even at 6:45am!
They love their slippers, especially Emily. She wears them all the time!
I got one little Valentine off to school first . . .
. . . and then Emily was off to preschool.
Valentine’s Day falls right in between my and Matty’s birthdays, so we usually don’t do anything for each other.
Emily was having some Kindle time the other afternoon, and was clearly enjoying her show . . .
. . . while I was enjoying some snuggle time while I read my book.
And that’s a look at our life lately!
The girls are off of school all next week for Winter Break, which seems unnecessary after all the snow days they’ve had, but, c’est la vie. We’re kicking the break off with a big outing for the girls on Saturday!
Have a great weekend!
