The GREAT family weekend Adventures

OK, the FIRST thing I want to do is explain to every one what is up with us calling ourselves The GREAT FAMILY. When my GREAT Husband was a kid he signed his name SHAWN THE GREAT instead of using his last name. So now he calls me MOMMY the GREAT and Kya is DOODLE the GREAT. But speaking of GREAT…we had a GREAT weekend.

First my GREAT Husband took me on our FIRST alone date in 17 months. My GREAT mom came down after a long day at work and watched Doodle the GREAT for us. WOW…I never realized how much we needed to do this…The food was GREAT and the Conversation was GREAT too. I would say this date was better than GREAT it was PERFECT.

Saturday was spent Shopping for Miss Kya Blu and eating lunch at a GREAT place where we could sit outside; Kya loved that. My GREAT friend Alicia came over to Play with Doodle the GREAT Saturday night. My GREAT Mom is making Doodle the GREAT a bunch of cute Halloween dresses so we bought the material and supplies to make them.

On SUNDAY we went to Picture People and had some GREAT pictures of Doodle the GREAT taken in her five HALLOWEEN costumes. You see, we missed being in the USA on HALLOWEEN by one day last year so we are making up for it this year…with five GREAT Costumes…HAHA! I love the pictures and of course, they are GREAT…but what is not GREAT is that it take 48 hours for them to email them to me…well I could not make my GREAT BLOG BUDDIES wait 48 hours so I took Pictures of the Pictures…yup I know I am a GREAT DORK!! While waiting for our pictures Doodle the GREAT found a new boyfriend, Gilbert and took his hand and took off out of the store with him…we all thought it was GREAT and FUNNY…Oh all of us except Daddy the GREAT. I think Daddy the GREAT is getting a little worried about our boy crazy girly girl. After the Photo Shoot…we went to the GREATEST restaurant on earth…any guesses??? That right Cheesecake Factory. So Cheesecake Factory has been open for 4 days and Mommy the GREAT, Doodle the GREAT and Aunt Lala the GREAT have already been there twice.
I know I have said GREAT enough…but really I have the GREATEST HUSBAND, GREATEST DAUGHTER, GREATEST MOM and GREATEST FRIEND in the GREAT BIG WORLD!!! They all put up with me and pretty much let me be the BOSS….So for now,
