And the crazy thing about her favorite book, back at the beginning of the school year someone contacted me through email and said she had some books for me if I would like them since she knew I was adopting. I am now not sure who that individual was, I wanted to write a thank you note but... well I guess you have figured out that I have not been able to properly thank them.. since I have no idea who that person was. I thought it was a woman I met this summer that has adopted and is head of the FCC in our town. But when I ran into her at Chinese New Year, she said no it wasn't her. And folks these books were brand new or like new, all but one for the parents. And The Queen has really enjoyed this one. I haven't pulled all of them out yet, just one at a time when we are needing a change. So that is the book she shared with her class yesterday. I hope they enjoyed it.
more updates later.....

The boys had a boys night out last night and went to see the Harlem**Globe*trotters. They enjoyed their evening out while The Queen and I went and did a little window shopping at home decor store. We just enjoyed the peace and quiet of being able to look at girly stuff. And then we stopped and rented a princess movie. I am not sure I enjoyed it, it is the latest one where a frog is involved and it involved a lot of sorcery and witchcraft. So it won't be added to our collection. The Queen and I also bought our items to make her a poster for "student of the week.
And this is how we spent our sunny, warm day off. We, I mean I , cleaned the house and the males + The Queen washed the cars. She had the best time. It seems to be her first time washing a car or having people spray her with a water hose. It is her first bathing suit. She had the time of her life. She got pure wild out there with all the fun. She got so wound up I didn't think we would be able to bring her down, she had such squeals of delight. But really she was easy to bring down or maybe it was the cold she had started to feel after getting so wet and she was ready to change back into her clothes. And then she was ready to cook with mama.
I joined *w.watchers* a couple of weeks ago and then my husband got bad news from the doc that his cholesterol is sky high. I had already started dieting but it is so hard when no one else in the house watches what they eat..... till now, ha ha. So now someone has joined me watching what we eat. And now begins the process of finding healthy foods that fit both of our peramters and taste good. I started trying recipes I got from ww. I have made some good dinners and breakfast dishes, but tring to find the right desserts, uggg. First htis week I made some kind of pumpkin custard. I used to love it at a restaurant on the Eastern Shore, till they closed. So I had to give the recipe a try. One word, YUCK! Second try was today, a peanut butter, chocolate chip pie. It was kind of, uggg. It involved fat free cream cheese, light peanut butter, lemon juice, some cool whip and some chocolate chips, but that was it, no sweetner. So it was kind of like peanut butter with lemon juice mixed it, just kind of uggg, no yummy yums in my household. If it had been in China, might have gone over better since they don't really sweeten anything, but being back in the states, uggg.

And then today daddy picked up the oldest son from school and The Queen was on the playground while this was going on so they waved and the males left. Then after I was done with a meeting I went and retrieved the oldest son from dad and we also exchanged cars. So when I picked her up from school in dad's car with the oldest brother in tow. Well that just blew her mind. We explained the best we could. She seemed alright with this for the moment. Then halfway home, she brought it up again. She was going through it all, who was where with who and when. I couldn't even keep up.
The list probably could gone on and on.
Like why you where green so you don't get pinched when we have taught her you don't pinch? Figure that one out.

Then today it was a friend's son's birthday and he had a skating party. So The Queen experienced her first child's birthday party and her first experience skating. She loved them both, but she didn't have time to eat pizza or cake today because she was enjoying the skating or should I say falling. But she did stop for ice cream.
