Early Works Kid's Museum

I took Emily to the Early Works kid's museum in Huntsville while Norm was at his softball umpire camp. She loved it there. Here are some pics from today.

There's a story to go with the water tubs shots...

When we got into Biscuit's Backyard Emily wanted to know if she could play in the water tub thing. I said sure. Apparently she thought I meant she could play IN THE WATER TUB because she proceeds to PULL HER PANTS DOWN!!! I guess she was going to strip naked and play IN THE TUB!! LOL!!! Needless to say I was rushing to pull her pants up and thank goodness NO ONE WAS IN THERE WITH US!!!

A Day Out With My Friend

Emily and I spent the day with my friend Karla. Even though I talk to Karla online, I haven't seen her in years! We went to the mall and window shopped, hit some more stores around town then took Emily to the Imagination Place. Here are some pics from today.

The carousel at the mall.

At the Imagination Place. Emily had a ball there! The blurrier pics were taken with my cellphone when Emily and I went back after Karla headed home. My camera batteries were dead. They still turned out semi ok for a cellphone.

Construction Gal Emily!

Meet the Fishies!

Meet the two newest members of our family... Dorothy the Fantail Goldfish and Minty the Black Moor. Dorothy is named after Elmo's goldfish "Dorothy", of course and Minty is named after "Minty", the green My Little Pony that Emily got out of her Happy Meal last week. I guess she thought it was a greenish tint of black. Who knows! LOL

Norm was blowing leaves in the front yard at his mom's and Emily had to be right in the middle of it. Oh, how she loves the wind blowing through her hair.

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas!!!

Santa Came to See Emily!

Here is the washing machine she's been asking for. She also got a vanity, a fish bowl, and some goodies in her stocking. We still have to get a fish. We were gone for over a week after Christmas so Santa knew a fish wouldn't make it on its own for that long! :) She wants a fish like Elmo's Dorothy - a gold fish! :)
