After she got the sauce going, we got to work on the pasta making! I've made pasta with Celeste before but it always amazes me how a little flour, egg, and olive oil turns into a pound of fabulous pasta.
By this time, the house smelled amazing. We have pasta hanging and drying. We have made a cannelinni appetizer. We have dipped some fabulous bread in the sauce (just to make sure it is edible).
I don't know how I missed it but ended up without a picture of the HUGE pot of sauce. Here is the bottom of the pot after we took out what was needed for dinner and then packaged 12 bags for the freezer. Nothing like a fun day of cooking and a dinner full of comfort food! Thanks Celeste!

Mom and Carly got all the supplies gathered and spread all over the counter. Besides pipe cleaners we discovered we could use some pompoms, beads, and glue.
They made butterflies that turned into pencil toppers. They made a dragonfly and a snail. They made jewelry. And, they made lots of flowers.
Here is my "vase" of flowers now at home on the refrigerator.

Of course, there were mail bags full of cards and treats. Carly wanted to "buy" valentines this year. So she took Pixie Stik Valentine cards. I tried to tell her that we could make them that in fact I had made them before but she wanted to "buy" her cards.
As much as I love good mail, I guess I have to understand how much fun it is to dig in that bag of goodies from their classmates.

The skit was about a boy in the 3rd grade who is bullied to be mean to a new girl in his class. He talks to his mom & dad and his preacher about what he should do. There are lots of lessons about how we should treat each other.
They did a good job and were all super cute!

Kenny and I gave her an "in-n-out" movie bucket. For the "in" part, popcorn, candy and the DVD Charlie and Chocolate Factory. For the "out" part, a gift card for the movie theater.
We also gave her a sundress with an IOU for yellow box flip flops to match. Gabby gave her orange converse sneakers for Julie (AG doll).
Happy 9th Birthday, Sweet Girl!
