Because of the cold weather, Bo has been staying inside and soaking up the warmth. Of course, Alise loves having him inside. She talks to him and reads her AR books to him.
Wayne and I got a sitter one night and had a date night. We bought the $3 refillable popcorn and $3 refillable drink cups. For some reason, he was so excited about this! I think he thinks he won't have to buy the kids meal anymore for Alise when we go to the movies, but little does he know that Alise likes her own popcorn and treat via the kids' meal. I took her to see Frozen again, too, during the holidasy. OH! And for you "Wicked" fans out there, did you know Idina Menzel was the voice of Elsa?? Makes me miss New York and Broadway!!
Speaking of movies, Alise discovered Star Wars over the holidays thanks to an all day marathon on Direct. Oh. My. Goodness! The child is in love with the characters! She's watched 5 out of the 6 movies. And what is really weird about this is that the third movie came out while I was pregnant with Alise. I remember when Wayne and I went to see it, the sound was so loud that she got real active that night in my belly...just kicking and doing somersaults...it was like the louder the music got, the more active she was! Well, guess which movie is her favorite? The third one. Go figure.
She has also discovered Subway! Bleh!! I'm not wild about sandwich shops. i mean, I really have to be in the mood for a sandwich. She asked to go last week because she had never been before - I'm really not sure why. It's not like we boycott Subway or anything, it's just not one of our go-to places to eat - and now she loves it! Or maybe it was because she got a free Frozen baggy to go with her kids meal?
Alise had all A's again this 9 weeks! So proud of her! Ms. R says that she is doing great but that she likes to second guess herself. How well do I know this! I told Ms. R that it starts on Sunday night for us. Alise knows signed papers come home on Mondays, so on Sundays at bed time, she starts wigging out over her grades and saying things like, "Mama, I don't think I did good on such-and-such test," but she always makes an A. Ms. R did tell me that alot of the kids that normally make straight A's did not do so this nine weeks. Third grade is tough, y'all!!
Life is good for the Horton's. We're trying to get back into our routine this week and that's never any fun, but it's necessary in our world. Hope you're able to get back into your routine, too!
I wanted to leave you with this link to Kelly's blog. I think it's a great post for everyone, whether you are a Christian or not. Enjoy!
