Grammy came by first thing this morning to invite us Out.
The Mama told her that she had an idea of Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel at the dollar movie, and Grammy was eager to join in. There was a single eyebrow raised over that, but whatever. We're glad to have her.
Maddie immediately wanted to tell Trevelyn about The Plan, and then she reasoned that she should wait for him to wake up.
Since she just couldn't wait, she came up with the idea to make him an invitation.
And she placed it particularly, where Trev was sure to see it as soon as he awoke.
"Mom! Can I paint?"
And - Wow! Best Day Ever! -
We found Manilla (son of Godzilla) and Manda, and Bowser's Inside Story. : )
[Sigh].... "Life is So Good," says Little Son.
: ) Now you know I'd never ask for more than that.
So Grammy comes
and drops off us at the shopping center
and we go to buy tennies for Maddie.
Dora ones this time.
I think this is the first time she actually chose them above others, though it's been a near thing often enough.
To the movie!
Which wasn't as bad as the Mama thought it would be.
And the babes enjoyed it.
To the toystore!
To see if they had MarioKart for the ds.
They did - for a primo price. [gulp.]
Maddie got a Diego game for the ds, and a Dora umbrella. :)
She's a little pink and purple today, I guess.
And after slushing and scurrying in the cold and snow today,
we're home safe and sound.
Godzilla the the Earth Defenders are up for Play,
and of course the ds was on duty as well.
Next chapter of Harry for Trev and I. Only two chapters left!
And now it's dark and cold and time to settle in, I think.
'Til tomorrow, then.
