the other day riley was in a blessing mood.
she cleaned and organized her room like only she can do and then proceeded to bless her sister by cleaning hers, folding her sheets down for the night and putting away the mountain of laundry she let pile up. she did it while janey was in the shower so it was such a wonderful surprise for her when she came into her room to find her nightly chores already completed.
this makes my heart so very happy.
janey wrote her this note and made riley's bed the next day.
today we are keeping the girls out of school and taking them to the big city to visit the american girl store.
janey has saved her money for many months to buy the doll of the year...mckenna...and she has been planning this day since the moment she saved her first dollar.
sadly, we found out last night that all of the dolls sold out of the stores.:(
janey was heart broken and shed many a tear since picking out just the right one for you is half of the magic.
after drying her tears and giving lots of hugs we convinced her that it was a good thing she checked last night, she had some time to prepare herself and time to place that order on-line. who knows if they all would have been sold out if we didn't find out till today.
and to make the day even better, we are picking up two of my besties who had a teaching conference in chicago and bringing them home for a weekend of good food and fun.
i have a feeling this weekend, filled with some of my favorite girls, is going to be a wonderful one.
have a happy day,
