Stella was asked to give a talk one of the first Sundays in our new ward. Guess who gave the talk? Yes, it was I. Anyways, she was asked to give another one a few weeks ago. We practiced with her, and then Jonathan promised her a surprise.
So Sunday came, and she did beautifully on her talk. When we came home from church, Jonathan printed out a note for Stella. It was a invite to go on a date with him. They could go anywhere she wanted, and buy any surprise treat she wanted.

So yesterday, I could tell she was having one of those starving for attention days, and even though we played games, snuggled up and watched a movie, and made cookies... it just wasn't enough. When Jonathan came home from work, I suggested he take her on her date. It was just the ticket. She was so excited, and when she came home she could not stop talking about it.
I think it is so sweet to see my handsome husband making time for our amazing daughter. Just the two of them.
They went out to eat at Macaroni Grill, and shared a dish. They ate fish! I am sure Jonathan loved that, since I won't share fish with him. Then they went and browsed around Target, which is Stella's favorite store. She got to pick a prize from the $ section, and then she brought home a treat for Jex. Which I am sure was her idea. She loves to buy for others.
I am so thankful to Jonathan for making a special effort. I know it meant a lot to Stella. It was a nice night for me, because I got to enjoy some time with Jex. It was a reminder of how important one on one time is.
