Alegria's Lamp Arrived!

This morning, Alegria woke up extremely tired.  I don't know why...she went to bed at a decent hour last night...

Odette woke up in a happy mood:

Watching TV while I get ready:

Once I got myself and the girls ready, we headed to Hobby Lobby.  For refreshments at the coffee on Tuesday, I was going to have a variety of fruits and goodies to dip in my chocolate fountain, but they don't sell the chocolate fountain chocolate at Walmart, so I had to go to Hobby Lobby to get it.  I'm also having the ladies make a craft, but I wasn't able to find what I needed at Walmart.  I tend to always try to look for what I need at Walmart and once I know they don't have it, then my last resort is always Hobby Lobby.  They pretty much always have the things Walmart lacks.

As luck would have soon as we got to Hobby Lobby, Odette had a blow out.  I don't know if it's the recent start of solids or what, but she's having more of these recently!  Thank goodness I always carry at least one set of extra clothes in the diaper bag!

While at Hobby Lobby, I got an email from Cameron telling me that the phone lines were down and so he couldn't call, so instead he emailed me.  I had been looking forward to his call, but an email was the next best thing, knowing he was thinking of me even though he couldn't call.  :)

Once home, both girls took naps.

When the girls woke up, Alegria was in a much better mood.  She was her usual, loud self, running around and being the crazy little happy person she is!!!  She even devised a new character for Odette's mobile on the swing!  Alegria placed her puppy backpack on there!  At first I was about to tell Alegria to take it down, but even though it pretty much grazed her face, Odette actually liked it and kept batting at it!!! 

After dinner, we just hung out:

At one point, Alegria came over to Odette and out of the blue started telling her "I love you, too!"  It was so cute!

Once Odette was in bed (at 7:30...YAY!), Alegria and I finished watching "Alvin and the Chipmunks" and just played...

One of the Valentine balloons from Grandma and Grandpa deflated a little and Alegria tried blowing it up again:

We got Alegria into her pajamas and while we watched her Daddy movie, Alegria stacked her animals:

She was very proud of her accomplishment!

After I put Alegria to bed, I opened up the box that her new lamp came in today and put the lamp together.  It was SOOO beautiful!!!  I put the table and chairs and lamp in the guest bedroom to take a picture to send to Cameron because I was so excited about it!  I think this is my favorite element of Alegria's soon-to-be-new room!  I already got Alegria's new blanket and pillow in the we're just waiting for the night light to arrive to be able to put her new room together!!!

I put the table and chairs back and hid the lamp in the top shelf of the guest bedroom closet and then began working on some stuff for the coffee on Tuesday.  I sure hope it all turns out the way I'm planning!!!


Now it's really late and I have to go to bed.

Gute Nacht!!!  :)
