She played with the coolest space ship balloon:

Then we decided to quickly stop by my friend Julie's house to check on her. She's been sick with the flu for a million years. It's great to have friends like her. I ended up staying for tea and sandwiches while the kidlets played.
The funniest thing about this jumpy toy is that Luke is way too small to get out of it himself sooooooo.....he'd just throw himself out. I could not stop laughing. Such a boy. Maggie would just whine to get in our out.
After I had been there a long while (I brought one diaper, no food or water for Maggie, and we were fast approaching nap time) a big freaky hail storm started. We watched it fall from her front porch before realizing a tornado was coming. Our town's sirens went off, the news cut into all tv shows and we were told to head to our basements. I did not exactly grow up in tornado country so I was totally shaken. Thank goodness for Julie the calm one! She took good care of us until things calmed down and I was able to head home. The tornado hit a bit north of us. What a CRAZY day!

Me: Are you my sweet pea?
We pretty much have a very limited number of places to eat in Longmont so we end up at TGI Fridays a lot. The other day I was shopping in a completely different city and I went into a store to wander. She was getting bored of wandering through racks of clothes and started yelling, "Friday's! Fridays!" The sales women were cracking up and one finally asked me if she loves to eat at Fridays. And now she recognizes the building. We drive past it daily and she always points it out and yells Fridays!
Her sentences are longer lately. Three and four word sentences.
I cant' believe how observant a toddler is! We drove past a fast food Chinese place that happened to be painted red and white--just like Dairy Queen. She pointed to it and said, "ice cream!". It took me a minute to realize how she made the connection.
Says Tebby Dare instead of Teddy Bear. So sweet.
Today she took a cup and said, "more water" as she independently walked up to the fridge, put the cup in the door water dispenser, filled it up, then walked off to set the filled cup on a coaster she'd set on her little chair--all without a drop spilled! I was shocked she was tall enough and even knew how to use the door water dispenser!
While eating breakfast, Maggie looked into her bowl of oatmeal to see how much was left. She looked up and said, "almost" then took the last few bites.

The other day I went out to get some sun and let Maggie burn off some energy. We don't even have a sprinkler for the hose so I just turned it on and let her play with it.

These are shots of the cupcakes I made for Enrichment Night. Lemon Drop, Raspberry Vanilla, and Chocolate. I'm most proud of the chocolate ones with the hearts I made.

The weather took a short break from being crappy so we took the opportunity to sit in the back yard and talk a bit.

Maggie has been HORRIBLY sick. During one of her better moments I took this video. I'll be posting on Grammy's visit soon. So far it's been a fantastic visit--even if we've had to basically hang out at home with a floppy, pathetic sickling.

Sometime that night Maggie developed a fever that is still going strong. She has been quite miserable and in turn has made things pretty rough for us (NO sleep). She does however have moments where she starts to feel better, hops up, plays, then crashes when she overdoes it. You'd never know from the pictures that she's even sick!
I think these are all the hats she owns.
Prepping the guest room for Grammy's stay. She arrives tomorrow (Monday).
Now I've gotta go and get my 30 minutes of sleep tonight before my daughter wakes up screaming.

I took a picture of her playing but she had such a serious face
Patrick actually took out the camera to document this--all on his own!
