We went down to the NFL Experience! 

They were putting the finishing touches on the JW Marriott.
(it was finished by the time we left)

The city created one Indy car for each NFL team, and
one for Super Bowl 46.  (33 cars total)

They are all on display downtown until Sunday.

I really like this car.  As expected, it was crowded in front of this car.

Little Man’s “iCar” got third place in his Den.

Little Lady and her friends performed “Snowball Fight” at her school’s
talent show.

They did a great job!

 Mom was the director and choreographer. 
(Mom worked very hard, many days it was like herding cats)

Grandma, Grandpa and Aunt J came up to see the performance.
(Aunt J had to head home)

Here, Mom toasts Little Lady, both in the performance, and the way
she carried herself.

(the wrap party was at Burger King)

Our friend was nice enough to let us use his tools to make Little Man’s
pinewood derby car.

We went down to Aunt T’s birthday party in
B-town.

This painting was in their bathroom.

I asked if it was Cthulhu.

She said it was open to interpretation…. suuuuure it is.

This is the first dress Little Lady created with the fashion
kit Aunt L and Uncle D gave her.

You can barely see it, but there is black satin beneath
the frilly pink lace.

…then Little Lady dressed up Mom as well.

Busted again!

Like most nights, I found Little Lady reading in her room…
instead of sleeping.
