Girls' night out!

This past Friday, Daddy sent his girls out for a fun night together . . . isn't he great?!!! (Then again, maybe he and Jaden just wanted us out of the house so they could do "boy stuff" like wrestling on the living room floor?)

Either way, we took him up on it and went out to do something I've wanted to do with Lael for a while . . . we went to a pottery studio to paint pottery! We decided to paint bowls so Mommy and Daddy would have special bowls for ice cream and popcorn eating too (in case you don't remember, I made bowls for the kids back in July) . . . the only ones they had were a bit fancier than what I had in mind, but Lael liked them, so that's what we went with.

Lael painted a bowl for Mommy, and Mommy painted one for Daddy.
Don't worry, honey . . . it's supposed to be red when it's finished (not pink)!
Between coats of glaze we used a blow dryer to thoroughly dry the glaze we had already applied.
And what better way to end a girls' night out than to head to Barnes and Noble for Double Chocolate Chip blended cremes (ala Starbucks) and Cookies and Cream Cheesecake (ala Cheesecake Factory)?!
Lael, I had so much fun hanging out with you . . . let's do it again soon!
