Luau At Home
Everything is finally unloaded, and found some place to rest. So, what can we do with all of these beachy decorations? Have a luau of course.
I told Gracie yesterday that we could have one. We made a grass skirt out of a paper grocery bag, and I pulled out all of her leis from Bible School. So, when she got up from her nap yummy tropical snacks were waiting, and so were blown up beach balls (also courtesy of Bible School).
Gracie and I spent hours at our beach party tossing the balls, and snacking. She has her surf board and played with it yesterday, but she didn't surf today. Did I mention they made life sized surf boards at Bible School! I have no idea where I am going to store that, but she is especially proud of her artwork on it, and she will even show you the moves she learned in Tennessee.
Gracie has been in a beach mood for many days now. She is looking forward to going with mommy and Grandma here in a few weeks. She has a new Ariel swimsuit, and today we found a matching Ariel towel during our grocery shopping at Walmart.
Mommy also got to catch up on her bargain hunting. We got 2 games, one of those child-sized puzzles, 14 books, and the prettiest dress for Gracie, a soft aquarium toy, a new pony and more minatures all at my favorite thrift store.
