We went to Slidell to visit Mawmaw and Marie this afternoon. Elias is crazy about Mawmaw. He just sat with her and kept smiling. Marie has a new puppy named Charlie, so all the kids went bananas. He's a fluffy little pup. Marie gave Leah some clothes from Francesca, most of which (to Leah's delight) are glittery dance outfits. Leah says they'll be her "fancy pajamas". We couldn't stay long as we were meeting Sean at Ihop for dinner. We've been craving Ihop for a while, but the ones in Jackson are terrible (both in service and food-quality).
