A cupcake date!

Savana and I have been going on mommy-daughter dates every Saturday. I love it. We just go do something fun for her. One week we went to McDonalds just for her to play on the playgound- she loves her happymeals :). Last week we went to Barnes and Noble to read books and I let her pick out a treat at the cafe. She really loves books and we had a lot of fun.
Today we went to Cupcake Chic and I let her pick out a cupcake. When I was pregnant I always called her my little cupcake. It kind of stuck and she has lots of cupcake stuff. She is such a yummy little cupcake :) the sweetest ever! I am pretty obsessed with my little girl. I think most mom's really love their kids but I never understood "a mother's love" until Savana came along. Being a mom is the best and I treasure every second I'm with her. She is the best little girl in the world and I'm so lucky to be her mom. I love my cupcake! And our little fun dates!

 Pretty girl.... wearing her mama's necklace and headband.
 Yep, we are cougar fans! Her hugs are the best!

I was thinking today how nice it would be if Santa really existed! All you have to do is be nice, not cry or pout and go to bed ontime... and you get free presents. I can be good for free presents :)  

Santa Claus Is Coming To Town

Oh! You better watch out,
You better not cry,
You better not pout,
I'm telling you why:

Santa Claus is coming to town!

He's making a list,
He's checking it twice,
He's gonna find out
who's naughty or nice.
Santa Claus is coming to town!

He sees you when you're sleeping,
He knows when you're awake.
He knows when you've been bad or good,
So be good for goodness sake!

So...You better watch out,
You better not cry
You better not pout,
I'm telling you why.
Santa Claus is coming to town.

Little tin horns,
Little toy drums.
and rummy tum tums.
Santa Claus is coming to town.

Little toy dolls
that cuddle and coo,
Elephants, boats
and Kiddie cars too.
Santa Claus is coming to town.

The kids in Girl and Boy Land
will have a jubilee.
They're gonna build a toyland town
ll around the Christmas tree.

Oh....You better watch out,
You better not cry.
You better not pout,
I'm telling you why.
Santa Claus is comin'
Santa Claus is comin'
Santa Claus is comin'
To town.

I'm from Montana and I'm a Griz fan! I live in Utah and I'm a Cougar fan!

So far it has been a very productive Saturday. Savana woke up at 2:30 am and woke up every time I tried to put her down. She has had a cough and I think she just wanted to sleep upright because of the congestion. Its not all that bad, I would not even consider her sick, but I still got almost no sleep. When we got up for the day we had a good morning watching cartoons! Then we got ready and went to the bank and cleaned the entire house, every crack and cranny. Then we got sprayed for bugs. We have not had a bug problem but after killing 2 seriously gigantic (literally mouse sized!) spiders this week I called a bug guy. Yuck! They are not welcome in my house. Savana then had a good lunch and fell asleep in my arms. I love holding a sleeping baby! Now that she is sleeping I have a little time the Cat-Griz game! Nothing makes me more homesick than watching Griz football. I love that my husband gets the sports package for TV so even states away I can still watch the Montana Grizzlies! Rival games are the best! Go Griz!
When Savana wakes up we are having a mommy daughter date to Barns & Noble for some fun reading kids books and will get a treat at the cafe. Then its grocery shopping and baking some cake for tomorrow and then Geoff gets home! And probably more football. :) Go Cougars! Raaarrrrr!
