Well yesterday was picture day...at "Waldoo" and I had the best of intentions of only buying the $8.99 package...no getting sucked into a hundred dollar package, just the basic ... this time. When we got there they were having a special and the package was only $5.99, wow, I could spend under 10 bucks and prove to Dave that I can do something without breaking the bank. Then the kids were super cute for every pose and blew my grand intentions out of the water. Why do they have to be soooo cute when you want then to throw a fit and make fussy faces and when you want them to be cute there is no coaxing even a smirk?! I think they were in a conspiracy with the photo people to squeeze my wallet!! Soooo, I blew my little plan wide open and spent 62 bucks, still managed to stay away from the hundred dollar packages but only because they were all on sale! Tisk!!
Grandma A. came to town on business and we all know the business trips are just a sneaky way to see us more often. (wink) We sure can't complain though cause we love to see her too!!!
I used the visit as an excuse to wear my new dress again, since I am usually a frumpy mommy it feels good to put something nice on and go out! I tried to take a picture of myself.... not so good huh?! So Dave took one too, and Kaitlyn tried to steal my shoes so she could wear them.
But Grandma showed up with a pretty princess dress and Kaitlyn was soooo happy to go out in style. She also brought Ethan a little Nike body suit, so we all went out, dressed in completely miss matched clothes, Kaitlyn as a little ballerina, Ethan as a little jock, me as dressed up hot (well I wanted to be) moma, Dave in casual beach and Grandma in her casual evening wear. We must have been a sight to behold!!!
We went to Skara for supper. Thank you Grandma!! The food was great and they were so kind to remove the trout head for me! Dave had steak and Grandma the chicken. Appetizers were lemon chicken wings and pitas with three dips. We had a section to ourselves which was so great since it in not rushed dining and Kaitlyn got restless and ran around our little area, like a terrible little two year old, while Ethan was totally chill on Grandmas knee.
Later in the evening I tackled a few canvases and even though it took me till 1 in the morning I pulled off a finished product. I wanted to do these for our house but I would have to get the rest of it decorated to match so for now the duo is for sale and I am taking them down to Urban-1. They are also on the art blog now too.
