Today was an amazing day of relaxation. Lady Bug and I stayed snuggled up in our jammies for most of the morning. We ate breakfast in bed. I didn’t make anything fancy. We had a bowl of cereal with a banana and some orange juice. I set our breakfast up on these cute little trays that I picked up at a yard sale. They have little legs that fold down and out to rest above our legs on the bed. I love them because when we are finished with them they fold flat again and a perfect for storage because they don’t take up nearly as much space.
After we ate breakfast we watched a few more cartoons and then got dressed. I took her to the park to run around and play. She had a huge smile on her face all day! I love days like this.
What blast we had today! Lady Bug was totally enamored by all of the Disney characters she saw. We took her picture with every character we could find. She had soo much running around in her butterfly costume too! It was neat to see all of the other families in costume today too. Usually when you got to an amusement park only a few people are dressed up, and they work there. Today families were celebrating Halloween in full costumes at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.
There was a parade with the Headless Horsemen as the Grand Marshall. Lady Bug loved the fireworks show too. She named every Disney Villain she saw during the whole thing. I think her favorite part though was trick-or-treating around the park. Everything was decorated in elaborate Halloween style. The staff and the park was all very friendly and made Lady Bug smile all day long as she carried her little Mickey pail around collecting candy.
We had soo much fun I think we should do this again next year. I’m exhausted now though so time for sleep.
When Aunt Maggie called me in a panic that she needed help to find a printing company near where she lived, it only took a couple of minutes for me to go online and use a search engine to type in the key words “print services in new york” and find several places that were within an hour’s drive of her house. I sure wish Aunt Maggie would get with the program and get a computer and Internet service! I love her dearly, but sometimes it is annoying how helpless she seems to be!
Another Monday morning down. I didn’t want to get up this morning. I had such a great weekend that I didn’t want it to end. Lady Bug got up before I did this morning. She greeted me with a big kiss on the forehead and a, “wake up mommy. It’s morning time.”
She’s soo adorable! I just wanted to snuggle with her again today and let her watch a few cartoons as we lay in bed in our jammies nibbling on cereal, maybe even right out of the box.
Reluctant, I got up and got ready for my long day ahead.
Lady Bug and I went to the mall this afternoon to finally purchase the IPad I’ve been wanting for some time now. We stopped off at the Apple Store to find just what I had been itching to buy all week long. From the windows outside you could see the apples on almost everything.
Lady Bug was totally mesmerized by the pop up displays with the Apple logo on them. She thought that the curved walls were the neatest thing. She kept running her hand against the fabric and telling me how smooth it was. When she looked at one of the apples she pretended to take a bite and made a chomping sound. It was adorable.
One of her favorite pop up booths looked like it had three walls that were all connected in the center. She ran around it and told me it was a merry-go-round. I couldn’t stop laughing because I went there to buy an IPad and ended up staying so she could play in the playground of all the pop up displays. I bet these pop ups would be great to place in the play room I’m planning to make her. A few displays in bright contrasting colors would really set the room off and help keep each section of toys organized.
