Wicked Fun!

A couple of weekends ago, Maggie and I had a chance to fly to Seattle, drive to Portland, see Wicked the Musical and spend time with our great friends. WE had such a fun time. Our friends called us and said they had two extra tickets and Maggie and I didn't have to think twice. The show was amazing! It was my third time seeing it and maggie's second. It was even better than the last time. Everyone loved it. A few of the young girls were having birthday's so when we got back to the hotel after the show, Tiffany had planned a fun sleepover for all the young girls. They painted toes, ate yummy treats, watched movies and stayed up way too late. Then they were up at 7:00 to go for a morning swim. I was lucky enough to not be in charge and get to sleep in til 9:00. We had lunch in Portland and then headed back to Seattle and spent the evening at the Family Fun Center. Just like old times. We had a wonderful trip and are so glad that even after being away for 3 years, we can still go back and it feels like home. Thanks friends!!!!

What's a Whopper?

I was driving Emma and cousin Jaynie home from school today and we were watching a movie and the girl on it was singing a song about how she wanted to catch a "whopper". So the girls started asking me what a whopper was. I explained that they were talking about a really big fish. They said, "well, what does it look like?" I said "It's just really big." They kept asking what the really big fish called a Whopper looked like. I realized that they thought it was a type of fish, so I continued to explain that "Whopper" to used to describe something that is really big. I said if you had a gigantic ice cream sundae, that would be a whopper. Then Emma said, "So if someone is really fat they are a whopper?" I just had to laugh.

I told her that Maggie's butt yesterday was a Whopper (Pic to come later). We all laughed, and you will laugh too when you see Maggie's picture.
