She hasn't taken this dress off for the past 2 weeks. It's just not worth fighting over. What other time in your life can you get away with this, right? Could you see a 38 year old woman walking around in a Sleeping Beauty dress day after day? People might think she was a bit strange. Although I have been tempted to wear a tiara to the grocery store...
Yes, she has chocolate smeared all over her face and a scratch under her eye from where Austin headbutted her. He's part mountain goat. They were jumping around in a pile of leaves at the time.
The kids were ever so helpful. They went into the neighbor's yard and raked up all their leaves. They raked and scooped and gathered them up. They loaded up their arms and carried the leaves out of the neighbor's yard for them. And they dumped them into our backyard. Joe was thrilled with this. We have like 50 trees of our own too so they had a leaf pile back there that was 10 stories high. Gotta love the fall!
And, on an unrelated note, I did a review on my other blog for the VTech Kidijamz Studio HERE. I noticed that Peggy Larson had left a comment on that post saying,
"Caden: ooooo I want that!
Cman: yeah, I want it too!
Can we get it?
will you get it for us?
will ya? pweeeeze?
Good enough for me- ummm of course they say that about EVERY toy commercial that comes on tv! But it would be cool to win something, so it's worth a try. LOVE YA DAWN! And we're not saying that to win- we know you do the random thingy."
I really wanted to give them the Kidijamz Studio, but I'd already said I was going to draw a random number, so I asked Stephen, the PR guy for VTech, who I was working with on this review, if he might be able to come up with a second one for the Larsons. And he did! I'm so happy to be able to send the boys their own Kidijamz Studio courtesy of VTech! Thank you Stephen and VTech!
If you see this, Peggy, act all surprised when you get it. ;)
