Cali's First Playgroup (without big sis Ella)

Our ward's Playgroup Valentine's Party was today and I originally thought I wasn't going to go since Ella has preschool M/W/F. But then I thought, wait, Cali is getting old enough to enjoy something like this, I'm going to take Cali girl! It was really fun to take "just her" to something and have some real mommy and me time. I'm so glad I went. My friend Katie put it together and she did a great job. There were stories, Valentine decorating, and yummy frosted sugar cookies to eat.

Look at that happy smile. She felt like such a big girl today. I can't believe she is this little girl walking around and learning to talk now. She'll be 2 next month-my baby is growing too fast!

We had to take a cookie to-go because I had to get a few groceries before Ella arrived home from school. Cali was SO thrilled to have this cookie that I had to take a picture of her in the car(yes, I take my camera with me just about everywhere I go). Just look at that face! This kid loves cookies. Just like her Mama. I love this time of year. Love, cookies, smiles and candy.....the stuff lifes made of.

I'm so bummed we missed it. I had to go to the doctors for my ear. Looks like Cali had a fun time.

It was such a fun little activity. It is crazy how our babies are getting so big. It seems to happen over night.

She is too big! Where did that baby go - I hope she always smiles like that at least when she feels goofy!
