Today Ian woke up in a REALLY good mood! It was a welcome surprise after the cranky moods he's had for the last few days.
It was supposed to be $5.00 music class day, but once we drove out there (in the rain) we discovered that Lisa had to cancel since the school didn't have space for her class today (weird). So with a pretty upset guy in the backseat asking for "art class" (he's got his classes a bit mixed up lately!) I told him we'd do something "special".
Special turned into a really sugary iced snowman cookie for him and a yummy gingerbread latte for me followed by storytime at Borders. Surrounded by a million books with airplanes, cars, fire engines, and pirates he lasted through 2 books and 3songs and we were out of there!
Home just in time for a nap! Did I mention he no longer will sleep in his crib? Big boy bed arriving this weekend hopefully!
Tonight we went to the Capitol to see the tree lighting (ok I really wanted to see Arnold since I've decided after 4 years I can admit he's our governor) We got there just in time to hear him say "People of Calefornea" and walk off the stage. A few songs, a little talkity talk by Leza Gibbons the Holywood production of turning the lights on ended and our fun began. We let Ian run around the water fountain, watch the lights, and smell the roses all dangerously close to his bedtime!
Topped off with a little pepperment mocha (cause it's the season) and our day was cmoplete. (have I mentioned I'm currently addicted to Starbucks again? after so long with not wanting it now I NEED it! ahhhh)
Happy 4th of December :)
