Saturday, January 9th, 2010

Six more fish joined the family today and initially all seemed well. They were getting along well with the other fish in the tank but by the end of the night one was not looking so good. Mommy let Daddy know that if in the morning he has passed on, Mommy will get him flushed before I notice him floating belly up. With 13 other fish in the tank, they figure it may take me a while to notice he's gone.

Mommy received one more shipment of used dollhouse furniture today that she had ordered off of Ebay. It had some really fun items like the minature version of the Little Tykes Cozy Coupe and a Fisher Price minature slide. They were great and I had so much fun playing with them tonight. During the afternoon, Lucille came to watch me so Mommy and Daddy could get out and run some errands.

Since Uncle Jeff's cardiac procedure earlier in the week, he hasn't been able to lift more than 5 pounds so all three of them went to Costco together. When they were done shopping, my parents helped carry the heavy items up to his top floor apartment. My parents shop at Costco once a month for items like diapers, wipes, meat and seafood. Looking at the cart, Mommy guessed a grand total of $430 after all the coupons. Mommy herself was even surprised when she came within $6 of the total! Now she is just trying to figure out with $424 worth of Costco items why they still don't have anyting to eat in the house : )

    We loved having your family here for the holidays,and it was alot of fun going with you to see Santa this year,I can't believe how big your getting,and what a bright and good natured girl you are.You shared so sweetly with your cousins and looked adoreable in the Christmas dress Granpa and Granma Smith got you!
    I sure like your dollhouse and the funky furniture and dolls that mommy ordered on ebay for you.I would have loved a dollhouse when I was your age.Heck,I would love one even now!
    Wish your Uncle Jeff a speedy recovery,say 'hi'to Lucille for us, and be a good girl for mommy and daddy(like the angel you always are).We miss you sweetheart!
