The kids have had small colds. Nothing horrible... just lots of boogers. But that doesn't stop Isabel from trying to be a rock star. She really is groovy. And moves to the beat. And she doesn't miss a beat. Anastasia is harder to photograph. I finally was permitted to put away her playmobil calender... but she loves her Mapletown-esque pals and dollhouse. And she just learned to cut today. I cut some strips of paper, and she went to town making confetti. She was occupied for SooooOO long. We should definitely do more cutting. Nick and I went out the other night... we don't get out much:
We were supposed to eat at this quaint Irish restaurant, but it was closed... as seems to be the case when I try to visit. But I think I wanted Mexican more anyway and Los Portillos just amazes me with goodness. It is so. seriously. amazing. The shrimp fajitas will knock your socks off. Nick ordered a Large Margarita. They weren't kidding labeling it "Large". We had to take pictures since it was so big, and eating out is so rare for Nick and I... alone. We hardly knew what to do with ourselves, and spent a long time at the restaurant, and even, *gasp* ordered dessert!!! And hung out a little after that. I forgot what it was like to be normal. lol.
Well, there isn't much to do around here so we thought we would rent a movie. Again, not something we EVER do because we have Netflix and LOVE IT!!! Turns out Blockbuster in town is going out of business... and I am perfectly fine with that because I don't like Blockbuster. Victory for Netflix!!!! YAY! We went to Movie Gallery and realized, we don't even like movies anymore... at least it seems like most movies they put out these days are REALLY REALLY LAME. Do people really watch these horrible intelligence-undermining movies? So we went home, and watched Miracle on 34th street... the old 1947 one and we loved it.
I still have most of our Christmas Decorations up... including the tree. I am not ready for the holidays to be over really. But I need to start getting geared up for some one's 3rd birthday!!! I got her a wooden barn and plan to get a few more mommy and baby animals for it. I think she will LOVE it. Horses and ponies are the "in" thing around here. Well... Isabel is fussing so I better *try* and get her to sleep or something. :)
