Hours of Free Entertainment

Friday evening Aunt KK (who's finally back in town and over a cold) came over and we packed up all the girls and went to the Chic Fil A Dwarf house. Who knew??
Lindsay went in and out of this "little door" at least a thousand times. Here she is coming through it the first time and she's already saying "I wanna do it again".
Hooray for KK and a good idea. So it's not totally FREE if you want to eat there. We used some coupons and the three of us ate on 8 bucks...not bad! Can you tell I'm waiting on a paycheck?!
Lindsay was gracious enough to let this crowd go out the door in between her rounds of in and out. She hasn't stopped talking about the "little door". I actually had not been to the dwarf house before myself. I had NO idea that they serve BREAKFAST all the time! They also have stuff on the menu that the regular ones don't have. Maybe you are reading this and thinking "where has she been?". I swear I had NO CLUE. We are SO going back to the dwarf house next time!

So in our quest for more FREE stuff to do and get mommy out of the house we decided to go check out how the ducks were doing. We haven't fed them in a while and Lindsay has been talking about it for a couple of days now.
Of course we took Brooke with us! This is how she experiences most everything right now.I couldn't resist a TOE shot!
Aunt KK posed us up for a photo. Lindsay is pointing at the ducks of course.

THANK YOU SO MUCH KAREN for coming over tonight and breaking up our evening routine. Last night was our first really rough evening. Lindsay really showed some of the jealous side and for about forty minutes last night I had TWO screaming girls. It was NOT fun. For the most part Lindsay is a great big sister. I think the time of day (close to bedtime) and Daddy not being around made for a cranky girl last night. Today was much better. Also, getting out of the house a bit was good for us all. Even Brooke was wide eyed at the restaurant and seemed to enjoy the attention she was getting from passers by. Sometimes a change of scenery is all you need! Karen, I can't thank you enough!!! Love you!

Nothing like some free entertainment! So glad you all had fun and that you got to get out for a bit! That's the best medicine to me. I get so stir-crazy when I have to stay home I can't stand it! Oh, and might I add that you are looking FABULOUS by the way!! Love the pic of the three of you together! I'm still envious of all Brookie's hair!!

Ok, I have never heard of that Dwarf house either. We may have to look that up. We are always looking for free entertainment. Linds looks like she had a great time.

I love the pic of Brooke....a girl and her blankie....PERFECT. look GREAT!

Okay I do know of the dwarf house(s) as there are actually several locations in Georgia. But I worked at chick-fil-a for two years in high school so that is how I know!

You really do look great Chris!

The little house reminds me of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory! It's always nice to get out for some free entertainment! You look great and the girls look like they had a great time.

I think this past week was the week for kids to get jealous and for some of the PPD feelings to start coming out. I hope things get better for you.

I hate witching hour. Around here it's between 4 and 6. Both girls are totally cranky and a mess until Brent gets home and they get dinner on. Unfortunately, you can look forward to many more days of two girls screaming. You can always lock yourself in the bathroom with an iPod if it gets to be too least for a few seconds since I don't trust Lana alone with Calli for long. :-)

At least the girls look to be getting along most of the time. Give it a few months and they'll be trying to play together (when Lindsay isn't pushing Brooke over like Lana did today - so not fun). Brooke is going to adore Lindsay. Just give her a few months. Then Lindsay will love that until she gets sick of it. Ahhh. Sisters.
