Aimee and Molly went to a Fancy Nancy debut at Border's, complete with a fashion show for the girls in dress-up clothes. Molly had a completely wonderful time. Matty and his dad went to a gun shop and then out to eat lunch like only men can do. Matty ate almost as much as Dad. He had a wonderful time as well. I was informed that it was especially fun to go out to eat with Dad, because "you don't let me do stuff like that." I said, "like what--eat too much?" and he laughed and said, "well...yeah." good thing he's got a dad.

Matty was thrilled to have his picture taken with the hedgehog who was stationed at the door to greet the people. Molly was scared of it until we told her it was just a person in a costume. Then she was able to get close to it.
The kids and I had an opportunity to meet Jan Brett. We have been very inspired by her the last couple of years. She is the author and illustrator of many books for children, and they are some of our favorites. Comet's Nine Lives, Trouble With Trolls, Gingerbread Baby, among her others, are books that demand all the attention of the child and the reader, because of the detail of the pictures that go along with the stories. She is a delightful woman and very sincere, and she seems to take genuine interest in her audience. Her whole countenance changed when Matty presented her with a picture that he drew for her and wanted to give to her. She encouraged him to keep his artwork and instead signed it for him!
