Quality Playtime (and Christmas Secrets)

Madison came to visit me TWICE in one week! It was a great week. She first visited on Wednesday because her parents had tickets to a Jazz game. So we played the whole night...and it was great! After she left, Hunter remarked that she hadn't cried once...and it was true! She was just precious the whole time.

The second night she came to visit, well, she wasn't quite as happy. But we still had fun. Essie and I were working out, and Madison thought it was the greatest thing ever. She started bouncing along with us and it was truly hilarious...she was like a wind-up toy that had been wound up too tight and released! I would pay cold hard cash to have a video of that moment; it was priceless. Alas, I do not have a video...but I do have a couple photos from her more mellow moments.

She is such a sweetheart. I'm so glad Messie let her come play!

On another note, I would just love to let you in on a secret. The problem is that I can't allow one of my faithful blog readers to know this secret...because I have her name for Christmas! It is truly a dilemma. Well, I may not be able to spill my guts, but I can show you this:

It's part of the secret, of course. But fortunately there are no clues here! Maybe in the not-too-distant future I will be able to explain myself. Isn't Christmas wonderful??

ummmm...did I read correctly? You said that you & Essie "worked out." You actually exercised?? I'm impressed! You know how I think exercise is the cure to all problems in life! Heh! Heh!

Your loving mother
