Happy St Patrick's Day
Yesterday we got to be in a parade and throw the beads instead of being the to catch them. Our daughter in laws family always does it every year and I was already going to let my daughter Melanie be in it. Yesterday morning at 7 am my husband decides we all was going to go. We got ready to go and met with everyone over at daughter in law Beth's parents house to finish decorating the float. The parade started at 2 pm and we finished decoraring and left to go get in line for the parade. Shannon sat on a stool next to me facing me and her back to the people on the streets. At first I didn't know if she was going to throw any beads or not. When things got started I found out quick enough. I would give her bead and she would throw them over head backwards and she didn't even look to see where they were going. I tried to get her to turn around but I guess she was to scared to turn. But she had a great time and she wasn't the only one. It is a nice family thing to do.
We are planning on doing it again next year.

I had to go an errand for son and it was on a saturday and I asked my husband if he wanted to go and we will just ride around looking around. We loaded up the girls in the car and had to drive about forty minutes to get where I had to go for the errand. Any way my husband drove by the theater to see what was playing and the times it started. We or rather my 11 year old decided that we was going to see Spiderwyck. We paid and went and got our popcorn and drinks ( to bad we can't bring our own it would be cheaper). We went to the theater room to get our seats and I like to sit up high so I could see better. Shannon sits down and waits for the movie to start. She does real good when we go places but especially movies because she loves movies.When we are at home she will play her favorites although she can't read them she knows which ones they are. She is learning more words and you can hear her when she is singing along with the radio. She and I will play the radio coming home from school and we will sing along together. She gets tickled and starts laughing and when she starts laughing I find myself laughing with her. She is such a joy to me.
