We also got to check out some books today because I was finally a grown up and paid for the book Brandon ruined. We read a couple while we waited.
After the library, we made another trip to Wal-Mart. I went to get FireLogs because it's mighty cold here and we are going to try out the fireplace. I was supposed to get marshmallows too, but I forgot them. Somehow I found a whole bunch of other stuff to buy though. Not a single Christmas present or grocery in the cart. When we were out in the garden section, which is Christmas-Town-a-Go-Go right now, getting the firelogs, for some reason I got Ellie out of the cart. The reason escapes me right now, but I'm sure it was a good one. Anyway, ever since we went to the Botanical Gardens and took pictures with all the scarecrows, Ellie thinks that any inanimate representation of a person more than a foot tall is there for her to stand by and take a picture with. So I had to take a picture of her with the weird plastic lawn Santa. I had to hurry because I know Wal-Mart doesn't like you taking pictures in their store. (The reason I know this is a whole other story- maybe another time.) The other day in BigLots she stood by a giant nutcracker and yelled "Where's the camera?" It was hilarious. I didn't have it with me that day, or you would've seen that picture too. I guess maybe it means I take too many pictures of her. Hopefully she'll be this happy if we get to take a picture with a live Santa. Somehow I doubt it.
