Not too blah of a day for a Monday. The kids woke up early, at 7. After breakfast, baths and play time, I needed to get out of the house. I just can't sit still lately. Soon the snow will be here, and leaving the house will be a pain in the bootie. I called some of my peeps who are home during the morning/day, but no one could come out and play. So I took G&D to the mall and walked around there. I truly hate the mall, but now with the weather so cold, especially in the mornings, I don't have much else to do. G&D love strolling around, and there's always tons of other mommas and daddas just cruising around, wasting time. G&D stare at the other little ones and have a good time. I feel like I'm always posting about us being at the mall. So today we did some window shopping and then had lunch at Subway. I ordered a 6 inch turnkey, thinking it would be enough for all of us. Well, I maybe got 2 bites out of it. This was at 11:30, so now I am so flippin' hungry. I should have know better, but both Grace and Denny ate so much at breakfast, (banana each, 2 blueberry waffles each, & both had a piece of toast with jelly and a few french toast sticks). I thought they wouldn't/couldn't be hungry. Never under estimate the power of toddlers appetites.
I am looking forward to Friday, as it is me and Bob's 6 year anniversary. Grandma Debbie and Papa Joe are going to keep the kids overnight, and Bob and I are having a nice dinner at Delmonico's. Then the whole night is ours to celebrate and reminisce.

Later today G&D have a play date with Katie and Tyler next door. Grace is so excited, it's all she's talking about. Denny sometimes will go over in their yard and play, other times he sits on our side of the fence and watches. He's a wild card, you never know.
