Our Kids Are Weird Part 3,512 + Plans For Caroline's Visit

Seriously. I don't understand many things about our children, but the latest has me completely dumbfounded.

Lainey has developed a love of all things cold. Not food or weather.....but her lovies, instead. We constantly find odd things in the fridge and now they're moving to the freezer.

That's Lainey Kitty right there, crawling into the Uncrustables box.


What. The. Hell.

Moving on.

Caroline arrives tomorrow! We have been preparing all week. Stocked up on vodka and Twinkies because in light of her recent medical advances (no more dialysis and a change in heart meds!), we're going to be celebrating. With class, of course.

On the agenda:

*Lunch with California fam.
*Point Loma visit.
*Disneyland.
*Jay Leno show in Burbank with Matthew McConaughey as the guest!!!!!
*Disneyland, again.
*Zoo.
*Carlsbad Flower Fields.
*Day trip to Santa Monica.
*Lunch with my boss (totally not a meany....it will be fun).
*Lots of gossip and making fun of our kids.

OK, so we may not get to all of that, but definitely the last one.

For now, I'm off to Preschool to help with the little ones. Share day, Letter R! Gonna get pretty crazy.

Yall send some good luck our way. Carter advanced to the final round of his Spelling Bee. The whole fam is headed up to the school this evening for a Spaghetti Dinner and to watch our nerdy kiddo spell! He missed "cachet" last time, but got "frugal". Wicked smart, I tell ya.

Later!

Is that Meow Meow?!?! Back in her good graces, perhaps?

Tell Lainey to bring her kitties to Wisconsin. We've got more cold than she'll know what to do with!!

and HOOOOOOOORAY for a visit with Caroline!! I got to see Hann last night. I knew I missed, but didn't realize exactly how much til I saw her again. I hate being far away. So you two have fun... and please blow kisses to Matthew for me. Sweet baby Jesus is that man attractive or what??

That all sounds super exciting...from the Twinkies and Vodka to the Spelling Bee...oh, and Disneyland, of course!

I'm a wee bit jealous of your locale and everything you have at your disposal.

Good luck to Carter!!!

My dream is that one day I will retire and get a job playing the Fairy Godmother at Disney World. Until then I shall live vicariously through your trips.
