Tea anyone? This is a question that we get asked a LOT. She'll say, "comin' right up!"

Ally picked out the exact same shoes for "pink bear". She LOVES this new bear and sleeps with her every night.

Peacefully asleep in her big girl bed:)
For some reason this really caught me off guard and I was a little sad. I know it's silly but this is after all my BABY! After she woke up she was so excited about her big girl accomplishment, we just had to have a little pedicure. She picked out my favorite color, OPI's Aphrodite's Pink Nightie, to match her nightie:)
She asked to sleep in her big girl bed again last night and slept all night long right in the middle of the bed. I guess since it was her idea that's just what we do now. Thanks for taking the pressure off of Mommy to make that decision, I am just so proud of you Ally!

Ryan's Party in Mrs. Dunlap's class. This week they learned a lot about the history of Valentine's Day and that it is a day to celebrate friendship as well. I sure have learned a LOT from my 5 year-old son this year. In this picture Ryan is smiling his real smile, which has to be caught quick, and he is enjoying Nacho Cheese Doritos and a ice cream sunday. It really doesn't get much better than that.
Honey and Ryan at school. It's hard getting a hug from Ryan, but Honey can always make it happen. She'll just chase him down until he gives in. (I think he secretly LOVES that game!)
Me and my favorite little guy. OH MY, Look who got a highlight! A very special Valentine treat to myself.
If we could just all be that joyful!!! I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day!

The Silent Auction set up. We were so fortunate to have 136 items to auction off to the highest bidder this year. It was a lot of work but it was fun.
Our art teacher, Jennifer Barnett, took a class picture of each class dressed in "cowboy gear" and they turned out absolutely precious.
Each teacher also created a teacher/student activity that you could bid on. So cute!!!
Here are the class baskets. Each class was assigned a different theme and students brought items to fill each basket. The teachers were in charge of organizing this and they turned out awesome!
My favorite student! Ryan did not sing, but he did occasionally move his mouth. He said that he was "talking the words" not singing. Where does he get this stuff?
My sisters were both here and helped a TON! Sorry Caryn I don't have a picture of you to post. But I can tell you that the Waco Trib was in attendance so go to www.wacotrib.com and click on slide show to see a great picture of Caryn and StaceyIII. :-)
550 plus in attendance
And here is my favorite picture (minus the blood-shot eyes and the obvious need for a hair highlight). Heather and I literally worked so hard on this event that our bones hurt on Saturday. She is such a great friend and there is no way that I could have done this without you, so THANK YOU!!! There were several disasters that went along with planning this party and she was just so calm and cool under pressure. It was really amazing to watch. Thanks for being so supportive of me and everything you do for the school. Love you!
