Shannon Seip from ‘American Girl’ Magazine called me this morning. They want to do an article on Landre Griffin and Shannon was looking for her contact info. Landre is the girl who won the 2005 Pillsbury Kids Bake It Fun contest by making a hedgehog cake. Pillsbury contacted me last year about going on the Tony Danza show and presenting Landre with a hedgehog.

Being at the Tony Danza show was a total blast. Check out the article and video clip. We got to wait back stage in the staff room because they didn’t really have a special room to put us in. We met and talked with different staff members and we even got to meet Tony Danza briefly (and watch him play ping pong…. he wasn’t very good).

Landre is a very sweet girl and we got to talk to her briefly after the show and give her a mini lesson on how to care for her new hedgehog.

Anyway, I was able to get in contact with Mary Griffin and pass on Shannon’s contact info. Mary says that both Landre and Tony are doing great and she promised to scan some pictures and send them our way.

We’ll keep you posted on Landre and the ‘American Girl’ article.

X’s and O’s (An American Girl)

By Trisha Yearwood

Phone rings, baby cries
TV diet, guru lies
Good morning honey
Go to work, make up
try to keep the balance up
Between love and money

She used to tie her hair up in ribbons and bows
Sign her letters with X’s and O’s
Got a picture of her mama in heels and pearls
She’s tryin to make it in her daddy’s world
She’s An American girl
An American girl

Slow dance, second chance
mama needs romance
And a live-in maid

Fix the sink, mow the yard,
Really isn’t all that hard
If you get paid

She used to tie her hair up in ribbons and bows
Sign her letters with X’s and O’s
Got a picture of her mama in heels and pearls
She’s tryin to make it in her daddy’s world
An American girl
An American girl

Well she’s got her God
and she’s got good wine
Aretha Franklin and Patsy Cline

She used to tie her hair up in ribbons and bows
Sign her letters with X’s and O’s
Got a picture of her mama in heels and pearls
She’s gonna make it in her daddy’s world
An American girl
An American girl
She’s an American girl

She used to tie her hair up in ribbons and bows
Sign her letters with X’s and O’s
Got a picture of her mama in heels and pearls
Shes gonna make it in her daddy’s world
Shes an american girl yeah!

Well she tied her hair up in ribbons and bows
Sign her letters with X’s and O’s

X’s and Os, X’s and O’s
