So, why would I think last Saturday would be any different?! We had attended Cousin EJ's college game & then made it to Cousin Caleb's jr. high game. Zoe was really loving Caleb's game because Cousin Bethanie was cheering.
Shortly after arriving home, I'm coming out of the laundry room & sure enough, I turn the corner to only be greeted by this:
Zoe the Cheerleader!!!!

I just happened to stumble across this etsy shop & boy, am I glad I did. You must check it out for yourself. The quality of work is unbelieveable. Breanna is so easy to work with & very fast. In fact, I had a proof within 12 hours. I did end up asking her to reduce the size of our card once I realized I had enough credits at Sn*pfish for printing all 300 cards that we send out. That wasn't a problem either. After sending Breanna the e-mail, I had the final proof with the size correction within 2 hours. Now how's that for service?! (By the way, you can either use her printing service, or you can have them printed yourself.)
Anyway, I'm not going to tell you what card we chose, but just know, that I will post it on-line closer to the holidays!!!! Until then, go check out her site for yourself. You never know, you might just find your perfect holiday photo card!!!!

Later as we're driving home from the game Zoe says: "You know, Mom, if EJ was younger, I'd probably marry him!"
Got me thinking......perhaps that's why she was hoping he was only in 8th grade!
(Don't ya love the crown: the price tage thing-a-majigger & all?!)

We set her "classroom" up the other night & she has been "teaching" every day since. She reads to her students, sings songs, teaches the letters of the alphabet, & even teaches a little bit of math.
Here's she singing the months of the year song!
(She's really into it!)
A few of her interested students!
The students' sticker charts....
So, last night, Zoe asked her daddy to join her in her "classroom". While they were in there playing, this is the conversation I hear between the two of them:
Paul - "My feelings are kind of hurt that you didn't want to turn your playroom into a funeral home."
Zoe - "Well, I want to be a teacher like Mommy."
Paul - "Why can't you be both?"
(Zoe doesn't answer!)
Paul - "You know, Zoe, we could clear out that closet over by mom's scrapbook stuff & make that into like a funeral home. That way you could play funeral home director like me in that room just like you're playing teacher like mom in this room."
Zoe - (After a several seconds of thinking about) "Um, no. Not gonna happen!"
