Claire is a determined little girl. She has formed a list that one would call her "Bucket List". Not to sound morbid, but she has a list in her little head of things that she plans to do in her life, or in her mind in the next few weeks =). Many things on the list come from her watching me and Shane travel with work and her being very interested in what it's all about. We are reminded of the entire list almost daily. Here is her list as of right now (she is ALWAYS adding to it) in no particular order:
Ride a horse
Stay in a hotel - with breakfast in bed
Fly on a plane
Go to New York City
Go to Las Vegas
Ride on a motorcycle
Color her hair (yes, as in dye it)
Star in TV show, specifically Dancing with the Stars
Shane and I laugh at her all the time as she is always reminding us and there are some things that we don't see her doing any time soon. You do not even know how excited she is to get to do these things. So we wanted to start surprising her with a few things every once in a while that we can take care of ourselves and that we will allow. I don't plan on her going to Vegas, riding a motorcycle, or dying her hair FOR A VERY LONG TIME!!! If she can get on DWTS, more power to her =).
So, yesterday, I surprised her by letting her know that she gets to stay in a hotel tonight! She was screaming with excitement! We are going to dinner with Mom, Tara and Nicole, Claire's choice, and then all of us to see the Hannah Montana movie with Alyssa and Halle. Afterward, PARTY in Claire's hotel suite!! Then the two of us are staying the night and of course having breakfast in bed!!! Stay tuned for some super cute pictures....
