Zach and I met Jerri and Jillian at Pizza Hut for lunch today and then, after Jerri picked Alexis up from her play date, went to Wal Mart to pick up a few things we needed.
I was much impressed with how mature Alexis has become while shopping with her mom. I don't think she asked for one single thing the whole time we were in there except for some cucumbers. I finally told her she could pick out a prize and she chose a Brats book. I also bought her some seamless panties that we found because the child hates panties with seams. Zachary could take lessons from her cause he and I constantly argue about what, if anything, he can have, and I still often end up with several items at the checkout that weren't intended purchases.
Jillian is a serious little shopper. Groceries are mostly at the top of her mind's shopping list. She loaded up a huge pizza into Jerri's cart, while in mine she put her own bag of powdered donuts, and a couple little boxes of Valentine chocolates for her "dister" and herself. We'd told her she could pick out a new Strawberry Shortcake book and she did, plus 2 more. She also found a Strawberry Shortcake shirt that was just her size, I knew she was in love with it because she carried it all over the store.
We're back from shopping now, Zach and I stopped and got a few movies on the way home, James is gone on an overnight hunting trip with his brothers, so we've donned pjs, made hot drinks, and plan to snuggle down and stay warm this evening.
Hope everyone's having a great weekend!
