Six or Seven Tacos

Welp, sometimes you have to learn things the hard way.  When we weren't looking - before Daddy got home, and just before we were all supposed to pack into the car to go to ballet… Madison ate too many tacos.  We asked her how many she had, and she told us six or seven.  She really likes tacos, jus tin case you didn't know that.  We had some leftover from Tuesday, and Daddy hasn't been eating these as much.  So Madison made up for lost tacos, so to speak.

But the end result is that we didn't go to ballet tonight.  Yes, Madison felt the effects rather quickly, and that was that.  She didn't go to ballet on Monday either due to the holiday (it's beyond me why they had classes that night, beyond the simple need for money).  Anyway, we missed out tonight.

There was still things to do though.  For example, we brought up the big living room tree tonight, and started putting lights on it.  While that was happening, Mommy and Madison sat together to watch a new movie for Madison.  It was her first time watching, "Miracle on 34th Street," the original version with Edmund Gwenn and Natalie Wood.  She loved it!  We like this version, although the 1994 version is really good too.  We didn't like the 1973 version as much, nor the weirdly-paced 1955 version that seemed like a cliff-notes version of the original.

One of the reasons we chose this movie to watch was that Madison wrote her letter to Santa today.  Right about when ballet was starting, Madison began her letter, which is always a funny thing.  You present your reasoning for the list you're about to give in about one sentence (or less), and then get to the list!  This year's list is similar to last year's somewhat, at least in the types of things Madison is hoping to get from Santa:  movies, video games, books, games, and some toys too.  Madison really wants some Tsum-Tsums, which are small versions of characters from Disney, Marvel or Star Wars.  The one she wants the most is a Jawa, because it's cute, and because she was a Jawa of course.

We'll have to wait and see if Santa comes through on this one.  But I have a good feeling about it, because I know Madison has been really good all year.  We spent some time practicing for the Spelling Bee, writing about cowboys, and sitting outside a bit.  Madison was sick for a small spell, but got better quickly.  It was just too late to go to ballet.  This upset her initially, but she recovered over a bit of time, and learned a pretty good lesson about eating too much at once, no matter how good it tasted.

At bedtime, we started a new book with a November theme.  We began "Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims," which does a great job of telling some of those amazing facts about the Pilgrims, things Daddy learned reading another book recently.  It's good to hear some of this stuff about the foundation of the country.  Certainly because things look like we're shifting as a nation.

Speaking of dry and seemingly hopeless, the weather was balmy today, once again no rain.  The forecast doesn't give us much hope though, for weather and everything else.  We prayed tonight for all of it, hoping for a dramatic change in the forecast.  We'll see though.  All we have is faith that there will be an outpouring.
