SPENDING TIME WITH ALLISA

With Aislyn in Utah and the boys at the Los Angeles Temple; Allisa was the only child at home on Saturday.

Victor and I had some errands to run in the morning.  While we were gone Allisa was given the assignment to straighten the kitchen and to clean her room.  Both fairly simple tasks since they have been mostly clean during the week.

When Victor and I returned home from the errands Allisa was busy folding laundry and helping Elliott with his car... :)  Allisa likes to be helpful and tries to find things to do.

Since I knew Allisa would have her chores done I had already planned to take her to the movies to see the Karate Kid with Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan.  We went to the Regal Theatre in Santa Paula.  I know, a little bit of a drive.  The local theatres weren't showing it any more due to Twilight - Eclipse being such a big hit.

After the movie we walked over to the Dollar Tree (we were waiting for Victor to come and pick us up).  I bought 6 frames; a poster; and a pair of flip flops for Allisa.  We raced home and quickly changed our clothes and raced out the door again.

I took Allisa to Euphoria Nail and Spa to treat her to a manicure and pedicure while I had my nails filled and had a pedicure.  We were there for an hour and a half.  I don't spend a lot of one on one time with Allisa (or any of the kids). I had no idea that she could talk non-stop for 90 minutes :)

At the end of our day; Allisa had beautiful nails and a beautiful smile.  I'm glad I was able to spend some time with her.

How did you not know about the talking thing?? I found that out on our first day at your house! :D

I am so glad you guys got some bonding time. I think it is really important to have "dates" with your kids. Jeremy and I really want to do them, but it's one of those, "You won't find the time, you have to MAKE the time" things.
