I have been so busy this past week. There have been so many things that kept me from posting and I have slowed down enough to get with the program. We had a great weekend. Saturday morning was basketball cheering with Avery. That afternoon we roamed around Target looking for some fabulous red tag bargains. We got a few and headed home. Mark got me some nice gloves for Valentine's Day. Also, he got us the first season of Gilligan's Island. Avery got a kick of it and we decided to watch an episode each Saturday.
My new banner was of A again at the bookstore. She found a series that she is crazy about. It's called Dear Dumb Diary. She started reading book number one and starting giggling every couple of minutes. It was amazing. Avery is very stoic and she laughed more Saturday then any other day in her life. To verify it, I asked her and I was right. She continued to read the series because Nana had to purchase these giggle maker books. I figured if anything made her laugh like that it must be a good thing. They are actually written by a man writing as a middle school girl that is hilarious. She talks about being popular and her mom's terrible cooking and it is truly funny.
Avery getting such a kick out of those books has made me so happy. She's such a serious little old soul and listening to her tell me about all the good parts was enough to make me want to dance. I want to write the author and tell him how much she enjoyed his books and how he's made a Nana want to dance.
