Princesses, Potlucks, and Purses

Our weekend started on Thursday with a mommy/daughter date to Disney on Ice. When I heard they were coming to town I just knew that I had to get tickets. My neighbor also happened to be going the same night and she told me that she was going to let her girls dress up in costumes so I decided E needed to as well. She was so excited to be Tinkerbell! (I know it doesn't look like it but I promise she was. It's almost impossible to get her smiling on camera these days!)

There happened to be a Chick Fil A in the parking lot of the arena so we stopped there for dinner first. And this is the only picture I got. I think she might have been kissing the cow...
We arrived at the arena a little bit early so that I could take E around and let her look at all the vendors.

 And, of course, she talked me into buying her a very overpriced spinning light stick. Why is she so hard to say no to?

I didn't really get any pictures of the show but I have to say that we both loved it. I wasn't sure if E would sit for the whole show but she did great. I'm sure the popcorn and pretzel she ate helped too.
It was such a fun experience and I can't wait to take her again! Hopefully Jesse will be all healed up by then and will be able to go too!

On Saturday night our church had a potluck at a small park. Emerson loved being able to run around and play and it was nice to be able to visit and relax without worrying too much about what she was up to. I did have to keep a close eye on her around the dessert table, though. She kept running up and grabbing cookies and other treats. Little stinker!

The weather was perfect and it even started to get a little bit chilly as the sun went down. I love that it is beginning to feel kind of like fall- at least in the evenings and the mornings.

Yesterday was the 4th service at the new church. Each week there are less empty seats and it's pretty exciting to watch it grow. I know my friends have worked so hard to get it off the ground and I can't imagine how they must feel to see all of their hard work come into fruition. We are loving it so far and really looking forward to getting more involved. 

Emerson seems to really enjoy it as well. She happily goes into her Sunday School class each week and always comes out with a big smile on her face. I also love that their memory verse this month is Jeremiah 29:11. It's the verse that hangs in Emerson's room and what I've deemed as her life verse until she's ready to choose her own.  Hearing her recite it to me is pretty neat!!

And on that note, can I just say that my sweet girl is just getting too big! There is just something about these pictures that make her seem so grown up. Yesterday she insisted on her bracelet and these two purses to match her outfit. I can't believe the accessorizing has already begun, although I guess I asked for it by putting a bow on her head just hours after she was born. :)

So those were the highlights from our weekend. In between we played at the park, watched movies, cleaned the house (though it doesn't look like it now!) and just hung out. I definitely don't have any complaints! :)

The dessert table always gets me, too, Emerson! ;)

She is so cute and she does look so big. ;(

So glad you've found a great church and that's awesome that E loves to go to her class!

Disney on Ice is a lot of fun! We took Aubrey back in November when it was here last. Looks like E loved it!
