A Great Day

We had an absolutely wonderful day today with Shawn's parents. We left here this morning and headed over to my in-laws house. We dropped Cameron off and headed to the grocery store. Shawn and I got a few groceries, but the good thing is that we didn't need a whole lot so we got out of there spending around $45.00. We headed back to his parents house, picked them up and then off to the pizza shop we went to see my SIL and of course get a pizza. They have really great pizza's. My favorite thing that my SIL got me started on was burnt cheese. I know it sounds weird, but it is so good. She basically takes some foil, sprays it with non-stick spray, spreads mozzarella cheese on the foil and puts it into the pizza oven until it is brown on the edges. Oh, it is so good and well I must admit that I am addicted. YUMMY!!
After lunch we headed back to Shawn's parents house and sat around for a visit. I love that I have so much in common with my MIL. I helped her change her blog background and also helped her with her signature and it looks pretty good. She even has a new blog header that she put together on Scrapblog. Cameron ran from room to room sharing his love among everyone and Shawn and his Dad sat and watched some tv. Shawn's sister Karen came home shortly before we left and noticed that Cameron was really into music so she got out her guitar and played it for Cameron. Well, Cameron LOVED it. He danced, clapped, snapped his fingers or so he thought and just had a blast. It was so cute to see the boys having so much fun together while listening to Karen play the guitar. It was just a fun day today and to top it all off..... I got new slippers. I know, it sounds like no big deal, but my Mom bought me a pair of slippers around Christmas time and I have worn them non-stop since then. I must really be wearing them alot because I am starting to break them down. I wanted to see if Wal-Mart had anymore before it was too late and luckily they had 1 more pair left in my size out of 7 pairs so I was pretty happy!! These slippers are so warm and they have memory foam inside so they are quite comfy too. Perfect for these cold winter days and nights we are dealing with all the time. Anyway, my little man is sleeping peacefully after a fun day with his Mimi, Grampy, Zoe and Kee.

Oh what a great day you had! First of all, congratulations for getting out of the grocery store for only $45. That is pretty amazing these days, which sounds terrible to say. Second of all, I am so glad that you got the slippers that you wanted. I love slippers and wear them often, especially in the winter because with the "cellar" type basement underneath the house, the floor stays cold all of the time and so do my feet.

Annie's blog looks great! I just left her a comment. It is so nice that you two have so much in common. I admire your great relationship. I love my MIL very much, but she does not have some of the same interests that I do. Kind of a bummer. But, I have you, a girl after my own heart! That is a wonderful thing for me!!!!!!!

I'll have to try burnt cheese somtime. My mouth is watering at the thought of pizza. It is my favorite food and since Scott and I are eating better, we have not had it for a long time.

You should put a little video on your blog of Cameron dancing and singing. :) I would absolutely love to see that.

Love and hugs,
Stacey
