March 8, 9, 10... Time Flies!!!

We packed as much fun and excitement into this weekend as we could :) Can't believe how fast time goes when you are staying busy!!
March 8-- Saturday
I took the girls to the mall to see Clifford, the big red dog! Hallie was THRILLED (must be like seeing Oprah for a four year old???)


We also made a stop by the Easter Bunny's Garden. Hallie sat on his lap, but because picture packages START at $25 I just had her stand by the scenery for a photo :) Cheap, I know... but nothing bugs me more than over priced crappy pictures! What happened to the day of the free poloroid??? Don't get me started...


Miss Reese slept through all the chaos!!

Then we were off to get Grandma Carmel. For supper we went to Outback...




Sunday, March 9th
We had a day of errands, then sushi and seaweed salad for supper, followed by Oprah's Big Give!


(we got my mom's new vinyl, from Jodi up... so cute!!)

Monday, March 10th

We woke up at 1am to begin our day... we left at 2:30am to head to Chicago!! When we
got there we were 6,7, & 8 in line. We were so excited when we got seated... in the third row!!! Up close and personal! The show was about the Big Give. Charlize Theron was the main guest... but we also go to see Malaak Rock and NATE!!! We had a fabulous time!! Then we were off to shop in the Oprah Store!! They had so much I could hardly narrow it down! Can't wait for next year!!!!!!

10 friends had to say...:

Clifford? I won't mention that to the kids - they would be so jealous. They find any stuffed dog and it's name is Clifford.
When you come for Easter, we can try to get pictures with the Easter Bunny - hopefully it will be a little warmer this time?
Oprah sounds like it was so much fun!

Looks like you had a fun extended weekend....with your mom here & Oprah...what more could you ask for?

Sheri said...

So...what did ya buy?

I recorded Oprah and looked for you in the audience. I even slowed it down, but I never saw you. If you were in the third row, you must have been on camera at least some and I just missed you. But I was thinkin' 'boutcha!
