"Fancy" Dinner

There's a book Mackenzie & Reagan love for me to read to them. It's called "Fancy Nancy." It's about a little girl who is very "fancy" and everything she says and does is "fancy." In the book she convinces her not so "fancy" family to dress up and go out for a "fancy" dinner. They wear dresses, and boas, jewelry, & hats. Last night we took the girls to their own "fancy" dinner. They picked out what they wanted to wear. They wore dress up things, jewelry, and shoes. We took them to Macaroni Grill because that was the most kid-friendly restaurant we could think of that would still seem very fancy to them. (We weren't about to take them into Perry's or some place like that!) Anyway, we had a great dinner and they got lots of ooh's and aah's in the restaurant, "fancy" desserts and curb-side pick up from the restaurant thanks to "Prince Daddy." They really got a kick when all the prom people starting coming into the restaurant. They thought it was a Princess night out for everyone! Wow, we couldn't have timed that better! Here are a few pictures from their "fancy" evening.

Yes, we have a few Fancy Nancy books. The girls love them. When I read them, I say everything in a "sweet southern drawl." They just giggle away.

Too cute! What a great idea-how fun! We don't own any Fancy Nancy books- not yet anyway. I'll have to work on that. :0)

Guess what you inspired me to go buy yesterday?? Yep, Fancy Nancy. I read it to Ellie last night, she loves it!! What a cute book- I love how it teaches synonyms too- are all her books like that? Great for their little vocabularies!

So glad Ellie can now enjoy Fancy Nancy! There are a bunch of cute books. I think they do all have the synonyms. We have "Fancy Nancy and the Posh Puppy" and it has the synonyms.
