A Day With Savannah

My kids and I love the show "John and Kate Plus 8" and they get lots of ideas from this show whether it all is good the jury is still out. But last season they had episodes where John and Kate spent a day alone with each of their children. A few weeks ago Savannah decided this would be a great idea for our family as well, and Trey and I agreed. Today was Savannah's day, it was suppose to be tomorrow but we couldn't find a babysitter for Saturday. We went to Birmingham and went shopping at Christmas Village. (Kelly, Amy and Robin you missed out. It was great once again.) We had a great time with her. Of course she wanted everything she saw. The only problem with taking her was I could not do Christmas shopping. She has a very big mouth about gifts but not as big as her brother. Savannah was a little angel. Everyone commented on how cute she was and it made our hearts glow. We already know how beautiful she is but it always makes you feel good for someone else to say that about your child, especially when they are not babies anymore. She loved the attention she got and we loved spending time with her alone. It is terrible to say this but I can't even remember what life was like with just her. I am sure that has a lot to do with her only being 17 months old when Jack was born. I would encourage each of you who have more than one child to spend a day with only one of your children so you can get that one on one time with them.

After shopping at Christmas Village we had dinner at Sumo. Savannah and Trey's favorite place to eat. We had a great dinner and our chef was wonderful. After dinner we had coffee and hot chocolate at Starbucks. After the post dinner drinks we headed to Academy Sports to look for hand guns. We feel the need to buy these before President Elect Brother Obama takes office. I am afraid the right to bear arms might disappear next year. Don't be scared I am going to take classes before I actually get it.

What a great idea, and I am so jealous! And I think Trey gets lots of points for shopping all day!!! Glad you are back to blogging! Lets plan a girls trip in January!

I saw that episode as well and though it was a great idea. Will definitely be using this idea after baby #2 arrives.
