You've got to know when to run...

This grin only pops out to say hello when Angie is shopping at Marshalls or when she is kickin' ass at poker. Luckily, we don't have a Marshalls in Germany, so I think even you lot can guess which event triggered Mama's cheeky exercise.

Before learning when to walk away and when to run, Dil stopped by.

Her name is really Nil, but the boys started it. It's just a damn good thing her last name is not Bert. She could have just as easily been called Mary Poppins with how quickly she was able to bond with our hellions.

Dil Poppins didn't stay long. For some strange reason, she had to suddenly go meet friends. I think I actually know that strange reason.

His name is Peter. He is my son. He normally plays table soccer without flashing his 'I'm freakin' insane' look at visitors. Then again, we don't get a lot of visitors these days. Hmm...strange.

Speaking of strange, Simone decided to kick off Poker Night by flashing us her boots.

After a few rounds, I can honestly say that those boots were not made for walking; they were made for losing. Big time. To make Simonelina feel less like a walking loser, we switched games. Everyone had to write down a famous person and stick it to the forehead of the player next to them, who then had to ask yes/no questions and guess who they were. Pretty soon, Angie was looking like a loser. Shaken, not disturbed.

At least copious amounts of wine helped to dull the little bit of shyness that Angie doesn't have. It certainly made me smile, but I was actually just mentally calculating how much freakin' cash were saving by not living near a Marshalls.
Ladder Talk:
1) What was the best part of your day?
Peter: When Nil come.
David: When Papa picked me up from the kindergarten.

2) What was the worst part of your day?
Peter: When I couldn't play with Davey by the kindergarten 'cause he was playing with Artin.
David: When I wanted Tom to play but he can't not 'cause he a baby.

3) What would you like to do tomorrow?
Peter: To play on Lilly's birthday.
David: To play animals with Peter.
