Funny peanut story from the weekend...
I drove out to my parents yesterday to spend time with everyone. Josh and Aliyah were both there as well (YAY!). Aliyah wanted to play games so she and I started off with Candyland and then all of us went to the den to play Disney Bingo...
Aliyah is very competitive and wants to win. What kid doesn't? I ended up calling out "BINGO" on the first round, so for round two Aliyah wanted to use my Bingo card...go figure :)
The funny/sweet thing that happened was when Dad put out $5 for the winner of the blackout round. Aliyah ended up winning that one and the $5, so I joking said - "now you can go Christmas shopping for me".
She looked up at me and said "Yes, and I'll get you a star for your tree."
The irony of her statement was that while out shopping on Saturday I bought a tree for my place, but decided against the stars...thinking that I'll swing by a Pier One to see what they have.
So I said back to Aliyah "I do need a star for my tree! How did you know that??" (I had not discussed any of this with her)
She looked up and me, shrugged her little shoulders, and in a somewhat "duh" kind of voice, said "well, that's because I know you so well!"
I smiled and said "yes, you do..."
