Nina and Papa arrived today, and they came bearing gifts for the girls. Apparently Nina was feeling guilty for not remembering in time to send them each a Halloween card (Silly, right? Missing a birthday? B-A-D. But Halloween? Quite forgivable.)
Ivie was the recipient of a few princess items (wallet, lip gloss, and magnet), along with a Hello Kitty headband. Macie got a play skillet, a snowman bowl/fork and spoon set, and a stocking cap. And, for both of them, adorable matching aprons.
Maybe someday I will cook and they can join me?
Until then, we'll just let them model the aprons for the camera...
We went to Rudino's for dinner tonight (Papa loves the grinders, Nina was craving pizza). After finishing her dinner, Ivie was rewarded with a quarter from Papa to get a gumball. And, for the first time ever (and trust me, we've tried several times!), she got a RED one! So she "won" a free cookie. And, of course, I had to capture the moment.
