Did you all have a nice long weekend?  (sorry to my Canadian friends who did their whole Thanksgiving shindig back in October).  I managed to decorate my blog for the holidays, but my fall decor is still steadfastly on my front porch.  Usually I switch out the decor over Thanksgiving weekend, but I’m still nursing a cold.  At least I feel much better than I sound, I’ve had three people comment that I’m sporting a sexy husky smoker’s voice.  Sexy and/or husky I can live with – but the words ‘sexy’ and ‘smoker’ in the same sentence just doesn’t compute.

Princess Nagger and I had our semi-annual dentist appointment yesterday for the whole teeth cleaning experience.  She was miffed that I scheduled it on the last ‘free’ day of her long holiday weekend, so I had to promise her a trip to Target afterwards to see what kind of ‘reward’ she’d be able to find.  She’s recently really gotten into Lego’s – they’ve come a long way from when I was a kid, now they have all these cool elaborate sets that actually build stuff, rather than the funky imaginative stuff us kids did.   A couple of weeks ago she started off with this:

Glove World - 169 pcs

Yesterday she upgraded to this:

Krusty Krab Adventures - 209 pcs

Next up she has her sights set on this one:

Good Neighbors at Bikini Bottom - 425 pcs

I think she’s hoping she’ll get it when we both have to return to the dentist on Tuesday.  Unless they have a wicked cool sale on Lego’s on that particular day, she’ll have to pick something else that my rapidly emptying wallet can handle.  Princess Nagger has only one cavity, which is a miracle considering she’s lackadaisical when it comes to brushing – now we have a timer to make sure she keeps the toothbrush in her mouth longer.

The dentist office we go to is awesome – everyone there is so nice, and do a great job quelling Princess Nagger’s fears (mostly) when they need to work on her teeth.  We both have to go back next week – I’ve been having pain in the same tooth they replaced the ancient filling a month or so ago…apparently they missed a spot.  The downside is that filling has be replaced again with all the drilling and excavating and numbness.  The upside is no root canal is necessary.

Princess Nagger fell asleep on the couch reading her newest edition of Diary of a Wimpy Kid (for the third or fourth time in a week).  She borrowed Little Dude’s fleece blanket to stay warm, and ended up having our cat Zelda cuddle up next to her:

Smart girl and smart cat.

  1. Yay for new legos. If my mom had bought me legos when I went to the dentist, I might have liked going a bit better. Isn’t it just terrible how we spoil our kids LOL. I was telling my mom today that she needed to buy Axle legos for Christmas. He loves trying to put lids on things or put things together. I think he would like them!

    Glad Princess only had one cavity. That timer idea is genius!!

  2. My son was into Legos big time when he was young!! Now his son is into them big time. I think Legos’ are great! Good times for the kids!! Good seeing you…sorry I missed last week!
    Great Random….!!

  3. Love your holiday blog design! Hmmm…maybe you’ve inspired me for a little sprucing up. Have to see what I can manage to do with my limited web skills.

    PN looks so cozy there with Zelda.

    Happy RTT!

  4. Sorry about the cold, but I love when I get that husky voice. I sound so sexy as opposed to my normal high pitched squeek (ok, probably not that bad, but still). Good luck at the dentist. Poor Marc had to have emergency root canal in the midst of losing his dad…. Poor guy made the mistake of bringing me with him, and I ended up watching the whole thing and asking the dentist questions as he worked (Oh, I also took a picture of him)

  5. Our kiddos loved Lego’s, but our son loved them more. Ooo, I hated going to the dentist as a kid. My mom always took me to Diary Queen afterwards for a hamburger and shake. You know how hard it is to drink a milkshake with a novocane injected fat lip, right?Why do parents do this to their kids? I loved it, though. Anyhow, that’s one of my fond memories of my visits to Hell central. I would have sworn the dentist was Satan in the flesh, as a kid. Looks like PN is a real trooper compared to my whimpy days. Hooray for her! =D

  6. Turbo has been obsessed with Legos for quite some time now. He actually got the Krusty Krab Adventures kit for his birthday a couple of years ago. He is now quite keen on the Alien adventures and longs for the really expensive City collections.

  7. Oh, for the love of Legos! We have ten years’ worth in our basement for the boy, and maybe four years for the girl. The train table was repurposed (as were the train tables from 2 other families). It might be the biggest investment we have! Ha!

    Glad you’re feeling better! And I love the holiday flair!

  8. Love legos and when you combine legos with SpongeBob, it can’t get cooler. I’m glad I’m not the only one with an undecorated house!

  9. My oldest spent the entire car trip home from Grandma’s reading a Diary of a Wimpy Kid book. It was a 4+ hr drive. That was nice.

    When I was a kid I had a kitchen trash can full of Legos. Where do you suppose they ended up? All the Valentine’s I received in preschool – those my mom kept. But a million dollars worth of Legos? Those are gone.

  10. Legos. Sweet merciful heaves how I hate @#*$&% Legos. Last year we spent the entire day after day after Christmas putting together Legos. One set had 2800 pieces and the other 1600. LEGOS!!!! We talked him out of the AT-AT Walker, thank goodness. It is 2500 pieces that are almost ALL gray.

  11. My brother still has his enormous Lego collection from when he was a kid. Something like 20,000 pieces. It’s the go-to thing when we visit. Kids and adults alike…
