Dennie Kids: February 19, 2011

Fun Night at the Winter Festival!
Highlights from today: (click here for pictures)
  • In the middle of the night, Graham woke up a few times crying about his ear.  And because of his hoarse voice and runny nose yesterday, we decided to take him to the doctor at 8.  We didn’t have to wait long at the Saturday clinic last time since we were there when it opened.  And I didn’t worry about the alarm because I knew we would be up in plenty of time.
  • We woke up and looked at the clock and it was already after 8.  We haven’t slept that long in years-probably 5 years 5 months and 7 days to be exact.  Anyway, Graham and I were leaving for the doctor when Anderson stirred first and then Campbell. 
  • At the doctor, Graham was a perfect boy and sat in my lap the whole time in the waiting room (which I was thankful for because one girl had the flu and another threw up practically on our shoes)  Surprisingly, he got the all clear for his ears.  She said one was a tiny bit pink at the bottom but good.  Good news, I guess (doesn’t explain what was wrong with him last night)
  • Back at home, Anderson and Graham devoured most of the leftover cinnamon rolls and Campbell and Reagan chose jelly toast (weirdos!)    Everyone played for awhile and then it was time to run a few errands. 
  • We went to the post office, Burger King and a few other places.  The kids each had a turn getting out of the car but when it came time for Reagan and even Anderson to get out they didn’t want to miss any of their movie.  The kids had fries and some drink-a week ago today we were at the Reagan library, the beach and Disneyland-but the kids still had fun today
  • Back at home, Dad ran to take the van to the shop.  I can’t just drop him off and us all head home in the van since there would be no place to sit.  So Grandpa gave Dad a ride and then Grannymom and Grandpa came over for a few minutes.  Everyone played outside while Grandpa worked on the fence and then Grannymom even stayed and enjoyed a cinnamon roll (the kids had ice cream and Anderson even had one last cinnamon roll)
  • Soon it was naptime.  It was oddly quiet in Reagan and Anderson’s room.  Anderson had fallen asleep and Reagan had a big time playing with her dollhouse.  She must play but always keep one eye on the clock because she knew the second it turned to 4 (the time I had told her she could get up)
  • Dad picked up the van (new tires but couldn't fix the air until a part on Monday)  We then headed out to the Lantern Festival at Wildwood.  The kids were given glosticks as we walked in and they were delighted.  We could have gone home then and they would have been completely happy.  Every so often there were countries to visit-we had hot dogs from Germany, egg rolls from Asia, taquitos and churros from Mexico, cheesecake from Venice.  There was music and Campbell really enjoyed the music in Germany-tuba and accordion.  The kids even got to take part in making a sand picture and a karate demonstration in Asia. 
  • Were you watching channel 7 news tonight?  You would have seen Reagan breaking a board at the Wildwood Festival.  Graham was behind her and Anderson was in the background with his green plaid coat on.  We will add a link if we find one.
