Shhhh! It's a secret.

Hey, look what came in the mail:

But whatever you do, you CANNOT tell Isabella!

As you guys are probably very aware of by now, Isabella LOVES The Backyardigans. Her last birthday party had a Backyardigans theme. Our DVR has about 37 episodes stored in it, so we watch it quite frequently! In the car most of the DVDs she watches are Backyardigans. And every time we see The Backyardigans Live commercials on TV all I hear is: "Mommy, I weally, weally, weally want to see this show because I wove Pablo". She calls the show Pablo, and I guess it's because it starts with "Hi, I'm Pablo", but her favorite character is Tyrone ~ yeah, our girl's complicated like that.

Actually, she's been sporting this here tattoo since yesterday morning.
(This is one of the many left over tattoos from her birthday party.)

Well, with this crazy Pablo obsession of hers, as you can imagine I've been stalking their website to see when they might be coming to town, but unfortunately they haven't added Memphis to their tour schedule. So Scott and I had this grand idea of combining two things into one. We can buy tickets for the St. Louis show, go up there, visit with friends and family and on our way out of town, enjoy the show. Genius!

The reason we CANNOT tell Isabella (can you tell I'm pretty adamant about this?) is because the show is still a few weeks away and she would drive us all to absolute insanity between now and then. So for now, every time we see the commercial and she says: "Mommy, I weally, weally, weally want to see this show because I wove Pablo", I just respond with: "I know you do honey. We'll see if they come to town". Oh, I feel so sneaky!

But we really are so very excited to take her. Hmm,... I just hope she's not disappointed to see human faces instead of her beloved cartoons. Oh well, I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Well I guess it's a good thing that last year Abby gave Isabella The Backyardigans Cd for her bday. I bet that cd has gotten a lot of use! I know Abby listens to hers a lot :) How fun for you guys! Isabella is going to LUV it!!

Yeah, you're right about that. Actually, I believe smoke comes out from the CD player from how often it's played.
I'm so glad to hear you guys are doing well. Can't wait to see some new home pics. How exciting!
