My Friday Favorite is all about our family book club day!
It was all about Pinkalicious!
The girls love Pinkalicious so I knew it would be the perfect book for our first family book club day.
The girls came downstairs to a pink table.
Wearing pink dresses (and pink socks!)
Ben made pink waffles for breakfast.
He's wearing red (oh no, not red!) because he doesn't own any pink ;)
These girls were so excited for Pinkalicious Day.
They enjoyed pink waffles, pink yogurt, and pink lemonade for breakfast.
My pink waffle and juice :)
After our pink breakfast, the girls enjoyed their first pinkalicous craft.
I found these free printable cupcakes (just google pinkalicious free printables).
I gave the girls pink pom-poms, feathers, tissue paper, and crinkled paper and they went to town decorating their cupcakes.
They immediately used all the pom-poms.
Their finished cupcakes
After decorating the pink (paper) cupcakes, we headed to the library to
check out more Pinkalicious books.
These are two of the six books we picked up.
When we got home, we read through several of the Pinkalicious books and enjoyed some quiet time.
Before lunch we tried pink smoothies.
Frozen raspberries, frozen strawberries, and greek yogurt.
Elizabeth and I really liked them.
Ben and Caroline did not care for them. :)
While the girls played, I made a Pinkalicious lunch.
Elizabeth had salami, pink goldfish, and pink applesauce.
Caroline's lunch was part Pinkalicious because she opted for a cheese sandwich and peach applesauce.
Ben enjoyed his Pinkalicious lunch with a salami sandwich, pink goldfish, and pink cookies.
After lunch, we made cupcakes.
While they were baking, Caroline went down for a nap.
While Caroline was napping, Elizabeth and I worked on her Pinkalicious writing skills.
She loved the tracing activities and asked me to print out more.
After nap time, we iced the Pinkalicious cupcakes!!
Caroline LOVES being Pinkalicious!
We iced a bunch of cupcakes and took them to some neighbors so they could also enjoy Pinkalicious day!
After cupcakes we made pink bead necklaces.
They loved making the necklaces!!
After a little free time, the girls worked on their last Pinkalicious crafts.
Finding the 'Ps' and coloring them with a pink marker.
And the other activity was using a pink dot marker to make a 'P'.
After this the power went out. We had a huge storm come through and we lost power a little after 5pm. We had been debating what to do for dinner and ended up ordering pizza. We went for a walk around the neighborhood after the storm left and we played with the girls in the basement. Once the girls were in bed, Ben and I played Yahtzee by candle light and enjoyed a gadget free night. The power came on about five hours after it went out.
Hope everyone has a great weekend.
Happy Friday y'all!
