Valentine's Plans (Photo Story)
Happy Valentine's Day! Danielle and I can hardly believe it's already here. Danielle has planned a Valentine Day dance at the community center for Saturday night.
Danielle is going over her list for the day. She's waiting for Leslie, who is going to help her get everything ready for tomorrow night.
The boys are watching tv.
Leslie arrives with Joseph in tow. She rings the bell. Inside she can hear Danielle tell Julian to answer the door.
"And don't forget to ask who it is?" (Danielle)
"Who is it?" (Julian)
"Auntie Leslie." (Leslue)
Julian opens the door, says hello, and runs back to his tv show.
"Hey woman. I thought you'd be ready to go." (Leslie)
"I'll be ready soon. Want some coffee?" (Danielle)
"No. I just had a cup." (Leslie)
Leslie takes a seat at the table.
"Where's Ciana?" (Danielle)
"Her dad took her out to breakfast for her Valentine Day treat." (Leslie)
"How sweet. What are the two of you doing for Valentine's Day?" (Danielle)
"Nothing special. I have to admit we are like an old married couple when it comes to things like Valentine's Day." (Leslie)
"Well it's a good thing we're having this dance. Maybe that will spice things up a bit for you two." (Danielle)
"Speaking of spicy, what's up with the ponytails? That's a new look for you." (Leslie)
"Well they were part of my morning Valentine gift to Rod. We did a little role playing. I figured I would keep the ponytails, just as a reminder." (Danielle)
"Well, well, well. And what role did you play?" (Leslie)
"Now, now, what happens in the boudoir of Rod and Danielle, stays in the boudoir of Rod and Danielle." (Danielle)
"Well I'm impressed. I may have to up my game." (Leslie)
"Well maybe after tomorrow's dance, you can surprise David. We better get going." (Danielle)
"Are you driving, or am I?" (Leslie)
"I'll drive. (pause) Boys, turn the tv off. It's time to go." (Danielle)
Of course the boys don't budge and Danielle goes to get them ready.
"MOM! I was watching SpongeBob." (Julian)
"Are you raising your voice? It's time to go. Get your jacket on." (Danielle)
Danielle puts Jacob's sneakers on.
"Oh, did I tell you my younger cousin is moving to town in a few weeks. I was thinking maybe I could introduce her to David's sister, Olivia. I think they are about the same age." (Danielle)
"Well let me know when she arrives. I'll bring Olivia by so they can meet." (Leslie)
"I think she said she'll be her the last week of February." (Danielle)
"That is the cutest little outfit. Where did you buy that?" (Leslie)
"This was a Christmas gift from my mom. I'm pretty sure she bought it in Florida. She got one for both boys. Kind of ironic because we picked out a denim outfit as one of her gifts, too." (Danielle)
Danielle and the boys finish putting their coats on.
"Why are you just sitting there staring at me? It's time to go." (Danielle)
"I just can't believe you are the same Danielle I met a few years ago. That Danielle was so prim and proper. Here you are in jeans, a green ski vest with a plaid lining, and sporting ponytails. Rod has really rubbed off on you." (Leslie)
"Ha ha. Well aren't you the funny one today. Let's go. We have a lot to do." (Danielle)
Side note: These football pants were part of a scrapbook pack I bought quite a few years ago. Today I decided to try them on Julian. Perfect fit. Now I need to find him a little jersey with shoulder pads.
