because kisses and hugs are special…

Thursday was an exciting day at Hannah’s preschool.

The last 45 minutes of class the mommies were invited to join their child for some snacks and fun. 

When I got there, Hannah was sitting at the table, waiting.  She looked so excited and proud.  It was too cute. 

This was sitting at our place at the table:

First, we had snacks.

Then it was time for the show.  The preschoolers lined up and sang a couple songs to all the moms.

Then, we all got to open our presents.

It’s a planter and it’s not as fuzzy at it appears in this photo. :)

Then we were done and had time to hang out, plant our flower, and check out the portraits each child had drawn of their mom.

Teri,
That is an ADORABLE picture of you and your girl! And the picture in the above post of you and Mickey is SUPER cute, too! (But for some reason I can't leave a comment on that post.)

It's fun to see Hannah all lined up by her classmates: she's so tall! :)
