Day Two Of Grandma T's Visit

(The grand kids totally enthralled with their Grandma T, and Taryn trying to eat Tyson's hair.) Day two with Grandma T was very eventful. We were up and at it early this morning. Taryn has slept through the night, 2 nights in a row!!! (I am dancing my happy dance.) I know this is just a phase that she is teasing me with, but let me say that the last two nights of uninterrupted sleep have been pure bliss. I feel like a new mommy! Okay, back to the day....we went to an early showing of the movie "Monsters vs Aliens." It is a new show by Dreamworks and it was okay, nothing to write home about it. Tyson liked the fact that we went to a movie, but he said that he didn't want to watch it again. It has a bit two much adult humor for a kids movie, I thought. After the movie and a quick lunch for all, it was time to show Grandma T where the rich people shop. I took her to the Somerset Mall. I had taken my sister Danielle out to this mall when she came a few weeks earlier and she told mom all about it. So we had to make a visit. This water fountain that she and Tyson are standing by is one of my favorite. I hope to have one like it in my front entry way someday.....someday..........This week at the mall, since it is so close to Easter, they are featuring a little Easter Village. It was really creative. The kids could walk through the makeshift forest, like you see Tyson doing.And they could play in the rabbit's house. Notice Taryn is totally bundled was still a bit nippy today. The frog in the tree was animated and moved its legs and arms. It was just a fun little play area. Tyson had a good time checking it all out. We window shopped, mostly, and oohed and ahhed at the expensive stores. After about a couple of hours, Taryn was done with it all and decided to cry. She had been great, all day, up till this point. Homeward bound we went and got dinner ready and stuffed ourselves silly. Grandma T made us Vacuum Cleaner Bars for dessert. I know, sounds different....but they are exceptionally good. I recommend them. Tomorrow will be a test for Taryn and Grandma. I have to have a lot of dental work done and so Grandma T gets to watch both kiddos without me. I know Tyson will be good, it is just Taryn and her clingyness to me that I worry about. Say a little prayer for us.....YIKES!!!

Sounds like you had fun with your mom, I love it when moms come to visit! It was fun to see pictures of her! Now I think I might need the Vacuum Cleaner Bar recipe it sounds good--any treats sound good to me!
