... last night, due to the generosity of some great friends, Eric and I got to sneak in one last date before we are the parents of 2 children. We had a Firebirds giftcard, so we headed over to Patton Creek for a night of dining and window shopping. After dinner we headed to World Market to torture ourselves with all the things we'd love to own but can't afford right now and we found this for Emory:
We left it until this morning since she was so very tired when we picked her up and we really wanted her to be able to enjoy her surprise. After breakfast and Daddy was finally up, we told her that we had a treat for her in the kitchen. We left it sitting on the counter and told her to pull it down and take a look.
She pulled the package down and stared at it for a moment and looked at us as if she were unsure as to what she was supposed to do. We asked her, "Who is that?" (side note: this kid is crazy about the movie Monsters Inc. so we thought this would be a great treat for her.) Breathlessly she turns to us and says, "Is it Ethan?"
