Fancy Nancy Sophie

Our Barnes and Noble had a Fancy Nancy party at their store on Saturday in which all girls were requested to dress up in their fanciest apparel.  Sophie and I were unfamiliar with the Fancy Nancy books prior to this party, but we went anyway and had a great time.
The fanciest thing Sophie currently has is a dress that will be her Easter dress this coming Sunday, so she got to break it out a little early.  

They started out by reading two Fancy Nancy books to the girls.


Then we had fancy treats and they did a raffle.  Sophie won the grand prize: the newest Fancy Nancy book!  I think we've read it 5 times already and she loves it.  It's really cute with lots of "fancy" words and a fun topic about exploring bugs and birds and gardens.  We had so much fun dressed up in our fancy clothes going out together.  Love you, Sophie Girl!

that looks like so much fun! my girls would have LOVED it. we've had the original fancy nancy for a while now (ethan is actually the one that picked it out and really likes it, too), and just his last week we bought fancy nancy and the posh puppy, and fancy nancy bonjour butterfly. they are all very cute books...we'll have to see if we can find this newest one!

and way to go winning the grand prize...we NEVER win anything. :)

p.s. some other FAVORITE books of my girls are the Ann Estelle books by Mary Engelbreit. the heroine is spunky and fun, and the stories are really cute. the ones we have are Queen of Hearts, Queen of Easter, Queen of the Class, Queen of Christmas, and Queen of Halloween.
