Pretty soon after Isabelle left, Lanie arrived with her pet bunny, Lulu. Oh boy did Oreo get excited! He ran up to meet Lulu immediately....I could tell he was super excited to have a play friend but I am not so sure if the feeling was mutual!
Hope and McKenna were already there before Lanie arrived and had pretty much set up camp at the egg dying table. They were having loads of fun dipping and combining colors.
As soon as I had a quiet moment, I leaned into Lane and in a low voice said "I heard something exciting that I have been dying to tell you!" Lanie's eyes widened as she leaned in.
But just then, Oreo started pushing his food dish across the floor and he totally distracted me! I walked around to see exactly what on earth was going on and saw something I totally didn't expect to see....Oreo was pushing his dish with his paw over towards Lulu.
And just when I thought he couldn't get any more stinkin' adorable, he started using his nose to get it closer and closer to where Lanie had tied Lulu up at! My heart just melted right there on the spot!
So much cuteness - too much to bear! BUT, I remembered what I wanted to tell Lanie so I made my way back over to her as she was picking out a cupcake. "Good golly, Saige.....tell me what you heard that is so exciting.....pleeeeeeeeze!"
"Well" I replied, "Come closer as I don't want to get anyone's hopes up if what I heard ends up being wrong." I whispered the rumor in Lanie's ear and as I did she squealed with excitement. "Shhhh!" I shushed. But it was too late. McKenna swung around and said, "What's so exciting, Lanie?" And, McKenna's comment caught Hope's attention - who was now looking at McKenna. Oh boy. Now what was I going to do?
Hope immediately jumped on McKenna's comment; "What did Saige tell Lanie? Did she mention a vacation? Are we all going on a fun trip or something? Should I go and start packing? Is it far away? Oh, should I pack clothes for warm weather or cold weather!?!? What....." "Hope!" I chided, "Shush and let me tell you before you have us traveling to Istanbul or some other far way land!" Sorry but I had to cut her off as she was getting really carried away with this!
So, in a low, soft voice I said; "Now you guys keep it down and no squealing like little Miss Lanie-bug did, okay?" They all agreed, nodding anxiously. "Okay, here we go.....I heard that Grace is going to be coming to live at The Dolly Dorm!" They started to squeal and I reminded them; "Silent cheers please!!!!!" Thankfully, they tamed their squeals down to a whisper. Lanie, McKenna, Hope and I were so excited about the possibility of Grace coming soon that we pretty much didn't talk about anything else for the rest of the get-together. We all wondered if it was true and if so, then when would she'd be coming.
Hope said she was so excited that she needed a chocolate bunny to calm her down. Oh boy, that's a first. I thought chocolate hyped you up! But hey, who was I to argue with her? I decided to agree with her and chose a cupcake instead because it was the best of both worlds; chocolate, cake and icing! Yum!
Even Oreo got in on enjoying the food.....somehow he had gotten his little doggy snoot on a bunny cookie and was giving it to Lulu. Ack! More cuteness overload!!!
We all - including Oreo and Lulu - had a fun time and we speculated on when and where and how we might meet Grace. We have heard that she went to Paris and was in some sort of baking contest. It all sounds so exciting!
And in the end, I believe that Oreo definitely won over the affections of Lulu. He showered her with food and friendship....why wouldn't she like him, right? :)
