Bonus: we even know what they are without her telling us. :)

Brianna: Thank you Mommy for making my favorite cookies!
Me: Your welcome but I've never made these cookies before.
Brianna: Then how did you know they were my favorite?
I guess I'm a mind reader. Although they have oatmeal, pecans and chocolate chips so what's not to love? :)
This is the conversation we had this morning:
Grace: Can I borrow your cell phone?
Me: What for?
G: I want to send Daddy a text message.
M: Ok let me just get to the right part.
G: Oh I don't need you to do it, I can do it myself.
M: Ok here you go.
Grace: How do you spell crazy?
another slight pause
Grace: Ok I sent it but I couldn't find the period.
So I send Josh another message that says Grace sent the last message and I have no idea what it said, then he sends one back that says I should read it because it's funny. Here is what she sent:
Hi how are you doing at work i hope you are crazy if you are im glad
I think she missed a word or two!
So I'm sure you're wondering what the point of this rambling post it! Well this morning Josh called to have me bring him his razor (he's on duty and has been gone since yesterday morning) so after we dropped it off I figured I would run by the commissary real quick to get wax paper since I was already out. Well while we were there I thought I'll just check one last time for the sausage and IT WAS THERE! I could have cried I was so happy.
Strange I know.
Apparently I have issues.
Blame my mother.
Just kidding Mom!

On another note Brianna keeps calling Josh "step-father" and it's driving him crazy! :) I told him it should make him feel better that she calls me "step-mother" at least she only does it when she is pretending to be a princess. He tried telling her not all princesses have step-parents but alas his logic is lost on the four year old who watches too many Disney movies.

She was standing looking at some pictures and says "Guess who I love more then you?" so I asked who and she said "Hopper" which translates to Harper her cousin in California.
She then said she loves Hoppers whole family in California but they live too far away to walk.
Unless you're Jesus that's a walk you won't be making.
So last night was pretty quiet. Our lights flickered twice so we got the candles and flashlights out just in case but nothing happened. It's still raining this morning but the wind seems to have died down.
So a funny thing. I went off base yesterday after I picked the girls up and keep in mind everything on base has been canceled and places are closing early. As I'm driving down the main road I see a couple at a park on the beach dressed in their wedding finery with a photographer clicking away!!!
I thought the contrast between the two things was funny.

My neighbor mentioned something when we were outside, in the pouring rain, when the power was out and now I just got an email saying cheer leading practice was canceled and places were closing early today. Plus tomorrow is their last performance and it may be canceled also due to weather. Crazy!
Maybe I should go to the commissary?
Eh maybe not. :)

I cracked up at the thank you for your support addition!!!
She came back out a little bit later with another note that said "I love you Brianna and Mommy and Daddyyyyyyy signed by Gracie Cotterell"
Personally I like that she puts her last name also, you know just in case we thought it was another Gracie! :)

One cheesy thing though was the first number pulled belonged to one of the guys who bought and wrapped all the gifts so of course what gift did he pick. The Wii! Of course the best gift in the bunch! We all thought it was great he won but he should have let someone else pick for him since he wrapped the gifts!!!
When we got home we found out Grace had been great but Brianna wouldn't go to bed AND had broken Grace's collectible Christmas snow globe. Ugh!
Can't wait to see what is in store for the weekend! We have a cheer leading show, a pool party and a birthday party!
