3/31 Kayla is so funny...

My 5 1/2 year old granddaughter, Kayla, is bright and beautiful. She's also got a great sense of humor.

I've been telling both kids that I've got a HUGE surprise on Easter weekend when I'm in LA. But I won't tell them what it is. Kayla got on the phone once and started guessing, "Circus? Zoo? Chuck E. Cheese? MacDonald's?"

I kept saying, I'm not going to tell you until I get there. Actually, I'm taking them to Hollywood to spend the night, and then we'll get up early, have the hotel's free breakfast, and then go to Universal Studios. I bought the tickets online, and a friend who works there is going to try to get us "front of the line" privileges for everything we go to. That would be awesome.

I'm so excited to take them on the movie tour. To see crashed planes, and flooding rivers--wow, they will just love it. At least I loved it when I saw it last year. Guess you can tell I'm psyched about this.

Anyway, back to Kayla...yesterday on the phone she said, "Grandma, I made you something really special."

Me: Wow, Kayla, that is so cool. I can't wait to see it. What is it?
Kayla: I'm not going to tell you. It's a surprise. No matter what you say to me, I'm going to say "no" because it's a surprise. So don't ask me, okay?

Oh my, she makes me laugh. The little monkey mimicked me perfectly.

I'm also psyched because I'm leaving for NYC early tomorrow morning. It will be a ton of work, but will also be so much fun because my precious Beatka will be with me. I'm so blessed to have a daughter-in-law who is a true daughter to me.
