The Flower Shop

Last week, Kennedy lost one of her baby teeth. She was so excited because she knows that means money! Usually, when Kennedy wakes up and finds her tooth gone and money under her pillow, she comes to show us and excitedly says, "Let's go to CLAIRE'S!" where she usually picks out a new headband, a sparkly notebook or some new earrings. This time however, she decided she wanted to go to a flower shop and buy pink flowers. She's had a huge interest in flowers lately and has been saying she wants to have her own flower shop when she grows up. I'm not sure what prompted this new hobby as my thumb is most definitely NOT green, but the girl definitely has a mind of her own. :)

This morning Kennedy had a GI appointment so when we were done, we decided that we'd go find a flower shop so she could pick out some flowers...

Sitting in front of the flower shop

She went in, looked around and spotted this plant which she decided that she wanted. She paid for it with her tooth fairy money (and a little help from me with a debit card) and was so excited to have her plant. The florist gave her watering instructions so we'll see how long this thing stays alive. Hopefully her thumb is greener than mine is! ;) 


Who knows, maybe one day we can hang this picture in "Kennedy's Flower Shop" to show how she got her first plant!

Nice choice! Hope she can keep it alive!
Whatever lies ahead, the Lord is with you! Always praying hard!
Psalms 32:8, 10-11 I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye. (10-11) Many sorrows shall be to the wicked: but he that trusteth in the LORD, mercy shall compass him about. Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.
