The life and times of the Godfrey ten.

HAPPY “A” DAY OLIVIA GRACE!

Today was Livy’s adoption day, and for the faithful readers, you know what that means. She gets to chose the meals for the day and she gets to pick one present out. So let’s see what she did. For breakfast, she choose pancakes. Not a bad choice. For lunch, grilled cheese sandwiches, again on a cold cold winter day, not a bad choice. Now what do you think a 12 year old girl would choose for dinner? I hear pizza, hamburgers, tacos, McDonald’s…? Nope, she chose fish, specifically salmon. Not fresh salmon, frozen salmon. Now Tracy and I love salmon, and most of my kids like it, but Livy loves it. That’s my girl! How many of you out there, if you gave your kid choice, would they choose fish for dinner? I bet ZERO. Of course I would like to credit this to our awesome parenting, but if I have to be honest, I am sure it is due mostly to my personal tutelage.

Those of you that know Livy, know she has a hamster and a pet fish. She asked for a Chihuahua for Christmas, and dad said no stinking way! I know, I am mean, but a Chihuahua? No quiero rat dog! So instead she asked for another friend for Hammy her hamster. So we welcomed Gracy to the family today. Her original plan was to have a roommate for Hammy, however, apparently Hammy would view Gracy more as a main course rather than a roommate. So instead they will be condo mates, and Lord help us all if Hammy or Shyla (the dog) gets ahold of her.

Hmmm, wonder why she likes hamsters so much?

So there you have it. For a small fee, you can spend a day at the Godfrey zoo, well maybe not a day, more like 75 seconds, hence the small fee. But imagine the lifetime of memories, and if I can snap of picture of you, you can be in the blog! 

Happy Adoption Day Olivia! We love you with all our heart!
