I got to see my adorable little niece yesterday. She gives the world's best hugs, seriously. It pretty much made my day to see her and be the recipient of several of those monkey hugs. She's 4 years old, and she told me yesterday that her favorite singer is Alvin and the Chipmunks. When I was a kid I loved Alvin and the Chipmunks too. Those were the days of Saturday morning cartoons. I could be wrong, but I don't think Saturday morning cartoons are a thing anymore - parents, help me out here.
My favorite Saturday morning shows were Alvin & the Chipmunks (as previously stated), The Smurfs, the animated Punky Brewster, and around 11:00am Saved the Bell and the Casey Kasem top 10 countdown came on. That was where I first found out that Rick Astley was white. A fact that blew. My. Young. Mind. I'll never forget that day.
My mom told me that when she was a kid, she loved Alvin and the Chipmunks too. You guys, those chipmunks have really stood the test of time.
This week is a baking week for me! I made some cookie plates on Monday for some friends, and will be making many more as the week goes on. If you are in special need of a sugar fix, let me know.
Last night I helped my grandma get her Christmas cards ready to mail. She's almost 93 now and doesn't really like writing because her sight isn't what it used to be, but she wrote short notes in some of the cards. This one made me smile. She signed it "F" - her first initial.
My grandma makes me smile. I'm so lucky to be able to spend so much time with her. She's a spunky, fun, kind, intelligent woman. I hope I still have my wits about me like she does when I'm that age!
Well, I can't end Wednesday Thoughts on a sappy note, so I'll share one more thought: I don't know what the Elf on the Shelf is. And I'd kinda like to keep it that way. When did this whole thing start anyway!? Is the Elf supposed to be good or evil? How many of you do the Elf on the Shelf for your kids?
