How to get your foot in the neighbors door

Last night Brent went over to a friends house to help them with something. The boys tagged along. They thought it was the coolest house ever (they had the coolest toys ever). So tonight at dinner, Cole was whining that he wanted to go to Donovan's house. I told him it's not polite to invite yourself to someone's house, but maybe we could have Donovan over to our house (and then hope he reciprocates the offer :) Malia jumped in and said. "I know how you can go over to Donovan's house. Just have mom make a big batch of cookies to drop by and then the mommies will talk for a loooonnnggg time and then you'll get to play!" What a clever girl! She gave us a good laugh.

That works for me.

She's VERY smart! We know where she gets that.

As a kid I would have done virtually ANYTHING just to look at Chad's Star Wars toy collection. Any excuse to head over to their house was good enough for me.

Actually Brent, I think it is inherited through her mother's line-oh gosh, that's me!

Deena, that's so funny! I haven't been on your blog before but Rebecca said you talked about us. Seriously, you can come over anytime! It's nice to know the boys want to play with us! We'll get them together soon.
