No Sale

Yes, that IS a Cookie Royale -- YUM!
Friday the 5th was Mom's actual birthday and as luck would have it, she was already scheduled to be off work. Sa-weet! We chilled most of the morning then headed over to the mall so we could have lunch with Grandma Herbert and Aunt Abby at Nordstrom Cafe. Dad got done with his conference call just in time to join us too. And when Dad got there I looked at him and dropped this bomb, "Hi Dad!" And the amazing thing was that Grandma Herbert wasn't the only one to hear it!

This was SO close to being an awesome picture. I need to figure out how to fake a smile on demand and still keep my eyes open. Seriously, where I did I pick that up?
Hmm, guess that answers that. I'm only kidding of course, I'm sure GmaH was just caught blinking... probably.
Also, how cute is my dress? It's a komono style dress that GmaH got from... wait for it... wait for it...NORDSTROM! It's uber-comfy. GmaH actually just got me some leggings to match it... which means I won't have to wear the brown ones I wore on the fifth. Yeah, brown (that's dark purple on the dress.) And Dad wasn't even the one that dressed me!
Later that night, M&D dropped me off at G&G H's so they could go to the movies. I had a lot of fun reading books and playing the piano, you know the yuzhe.
One of the things I enjoy doing at G&G H's is playing with the... uh... vintage toys. It's pretty sweet that despite being 25 years old, they're still totally entertaining and magically in working order. I just wish I had more coins for the cash register because all but one are missing. Hey, maybe I'll Bing It and see if anyone is selling them.
M&D came to pick me up after their movie but I wasn't done playing yet. Like, I found this Nordstrom bag (shock!) and hadn't even dragged it around the house on my arm.
It was a great end to a perfect day. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!

Remember, you can't take it with you, but you can lick it so no one else can take it when you're gone.

Until Later,
Avery
