Celebration of the Good Old Days
Chef Shana did an excellent job on the fries. I was on salad and beverage -- I'm pregnant!
My Goddaughter came home for a visit. She has been living in Chicago for the past year and I haven't seen her since the Thanksgiving Holiday last year right before she and her mother moved. Her mother is from Chicago, and decided to move back there after about 15 years in Little Rock, which is where Skylar was born. She spent a couple of days hanging out with the Blockers. We did the movie and the mall and she spent a lot of time texting and playing with Max. I cooked while she was here also, an amazing accomplishment!
I guess it's okay to pose and make a complete idiot of myself, if I am only going to see her once a year. I guess it's okay to be accommodating! I miss her already. Hopefully, we'll get to see her this summer. She used to go to Chicago for the entire summer. Now maybe she'll come here.
Rodney of course got his camera and more camera accessories. The kids got lots of clothes, undies, shoes, and a few toys - keep in mind this is Gigi's house. Rodney and I always get the whole family movies passes so that they can go together as a family. I agreed to keep the two little ones when they went. Kobi and Lenika got a really cool picture of Kobi Janai taken at Max's birthday party, a new DVD player, and a dictionary. God is good!
He took 350 pictures on Christmas day. It was him, his pj's, and the mega camera (Nikon D40) all day long! Now we call him "Pappa"razzi!
Max has a full social calendar, not to exclude the annual cookie decorating party held by my friend Anne Weaver and her daughter Olivia. This year he was able to do more decorating than eating. Olivia provides the cookies and frosting and the children bring their on sprinkles. Rodney took Max while I stayed behind to do house work and wrap gifts. They had a great time. Rodney ended up leaving his knife at Anne and Tony's - I still haven't figured out what he needed a knife for at a cookie decorating party?!?!?!
As usual Max enjoyed playtime in the kitchen. Olivia has an indoor playground in her house so he also enjoyed the slide and other play areas.
