My Cousin and The Frog

Ok, let me start by saying that I desperately need to update my blog...I need to give an update on Lexxa's PreK graduation, Logan's second birthday and our Disneyland trip. But, this is such a funny story that I'm going to tell it first.

A couple of weeks ago, Brad was out with his dad and his brother and my cousins Michelle and Tiana came over. We put Logan to bed and Lexxa wanted to watch "The Princess and the Frog." If you haven't seen it, I recommend it. It's a really cute movie with a good story. Anyway, us girls were all sitting with our popcorn and watching the movie when all of a sudden Michelle made a sound like she was a little freaked out but she didn't want to over react because Lexxa was sitting right next to her. She points towards the middle of the living room. Mind you, it's dark so I look and think it's a moth or something and then Michelle says "it's a frog!" Lexxa then proceeds to jump on to Michelle's shoulders and she says "Auntie Michelle, I wish you could stand up" while she was holding on for dear life. In the mean time I'm trying to figure out what to do to get it out of the house and Tiana is totally calm (I would usually make Brad take care of this, but he wasn't home). So, I'm freaking out, Michelle is freaking out, Lexxa is freaking out and Tiana calmly gets up to try and catch the frog (it's pretty small by the way). I gave her a little bowl and she managed to follow the frog and put the bowl over it. So, then I asked what we were supposed to do since the frog was now between the carpet and the bowl. Michelle's suggestion was to just leave it until Brad got home and I was convinced that was what we should do. But, yet again, Tiana calmly got a piece of paper and put it under the bowl...then she carried it outside and set it free!

So, if you haven't seen the movie...the irony of it is that the princess in the movie is named Tiana and she is the one who initially kisses the Frog and my cousin's name is Tiana and we were watching the movie and she was the only one brave enough to get the frog out of the living room! I wonder what would have happened if she kissed the frog...I guess we'll never know.
