Today was a work day for the most part, and all three of us went to the church to prepare for our upcoming series, "Weird Science." Only later in the day did we all go out to eat together. Daddy picked the restaurant because it was his birthday - so we visited Oriental Garden 2 (don't ask me where Oriental Garden 1 is!).
We ate a nice meal, and watched as costumed children poured in to the restaurant to collect candy from the owner. He's a nice guy, and we always have a pleasant time there. Madison enjoyed the soup - Daddy was a little nervous, but Mommy reminded him that it was the only way she'd learn. She did okay with the big soup spoon. She did even better with the cake she got later!
They brought out little cakes for us and sang Happy Birthday as Daddy opened his fortune cookie. It read: "luck is with you the rest of the month." That's like what? Four hours?
Earlier today, Madison said her first three-word sentence. It was: "More please bubbles." It sounded like that anyway. Daddy had turned on a bubble machine for her, and Madison was thrilled to watch these fog-filled bubbles fall down from a table. She chased after each one, trying to pop it. When Daddy shut the machine off, she said her sentence and we had to put it back on. She used good manners, after all!
We had a fun moment where Madison was pushing Pastor Franklin around downstairs. One of his daughters caught it on film with her cell phone - hopefully we'll be able to post that soon. It was cute, of course. She's the center of attention wherever she goes!
Here's a great gift: Mommy just called and said we all get an extra hour's sleep tomorrow: it's Daylight Savings Time!
