Alvin and the Chipmunks

Macen has become a fan of these 3 furry creatures. We were a little stumped on how he got started on it but then Mariah told us she had him watching it one day while we were clearing out of our ous in KS. One evening while we were having dinner with my dad and stepmom, Macen was very tired from the days activities and kept whining about Alvin the chipmunk. I was confused and then a little girl at the next table over asked if she could give Macen her Alvin. Of course he was thrilled and the next day we realized it was a McD's toy. We were even more surprised when we stopped at the half way point from Frankfurt and Vilseck at a McD's and they had the same toys. Macen asked for Simon and the pic is from him playing with them the rest of the bus ride to Vilseck. And ever since then he keeps telling us he needs another Alvin the Chipmunk meaning he wants Theodore. He repeatedly tells us we need to go to McD's first to get another one. Unfortunately, I don't think there any McD's nearby. We are in a very rural area of Germany. So we put our first request in for sending something from the US we can't easily get here. Aunt Stacy has Macen squared away and he is going to be a very happy camper when he gets Theo in the mail.

So to temporarily squish the repeated requests to go to McDs we took Macen to his first movie at the theater. Alvin and the Chipmunks was playing at the post theater, perfect timing. Macen did great at the movie and loved it.
