"FELLAS! Come down here please, I have a surprise for you!" Dave called upstairs to the chipmunks from downstairs. "Coming Dave!" Simon
called back down, and the boys all got up from Simon's bed to run downstairs. Snuggling would have to wait, surprises were the best! (Apart
from Stu's surprises of course) The boys collapsed in a pile at the bottom of the stairs, causing Dave and Claire to laugh. After picking
themselves up and dusting themselves off, the boys all turned to Dave in anticipation. "What's the surprise Dave?" Alvin asked excitedly. "Well
Fellas, your mother, Vinny, just called to tell me she's coming for a visit this afternoon!" Dave replied. All four boys jumped up and down
excitedly, it was always exciting when their biological mother cam for a visit! After Jewl had gone missing, there was a very harsh winter, so
Vinny had to give up the other three boys, so that they might survive. The chipmunks' parents had joined a band of hippies the summer after,
but after their father was killed in a protest, Vinny moved back to the woods to take care of their old neighbors. She was loved by all, but she
was busy a lot, so when she visited, it was very special and exciting! The boys ate breakfast, got dressed, and played Just Dance 2 until Vinny's
arrival. While the boys were in the middle of dancing to Crazy In Love, Vinny walked in. Dave and Claire were about to welcome her, but she put
her finger to her lips and then whispered, "I want to watch my boys dance." Dave and Claire nodded, and the chipmunks' three parents
watched the boys dance. When they finished, they all clapped, and Vinny said "Well done boys!" The boys all jumped at the sound of their
mom's voice, and then ran over to her to give her a hug. "You boys are very good dancers!" Vinny said, and the boys thanked her. "Simon's the
best, he always gets the high scores." Alvin said, smiling at Simon, who blushed at Alvin's compliment. Dave and Vinny looked at Alvin in shock.
Alvin looked back at them confused, until he realized that he hadn't sounded like himself. "Which isn't fair, because he thinks he's so much
smarter than us, so he's using his big brain as an advantage, I'm really the best. Simon would stink without his big old brain." Alvin hurriedly
added. Dave and Vinny both laughed. The boys hugged Vinny again, and Alvin winked at Simon from over Vinny's shoulder so as to let him
know he didn't mean what he said. Simon blushed and nodded. At that moment, the door burst open, and Miss Miller walked in. "WHO'S
READY TO GO SWIMMING?" Miss Miller shouted. Everyone jumped. Jewl rolled his eyes and said, "Mom, you remember Miss Miller?" Vinny
nodded and said, "How could I forget?" "Miss Miller, honestly, how could you have broken your hearing aid again already?" Jeanette asked,
somewhat impatiently. Brittany and Jeanette were in their bathing suits, and Bell and Eleanor were in their sundresses. Miss Miller didn't seem
to hear Jeanette, and continued, "WE'RE GOING SWIMMING TO LIVE UP THE LAST DAY OF SUMMER VACATION, DO YOU BOYS WANT TO TAG
ALONG?" Everyone covered their ears. Alvin and Simon nodded eagerly, but Jewl and Theodore paled. Jewl, Theodore, Bell, and Eleanor were
all a little uncomfortable around water ever since they had came back from Bubbletopia. "That sounds great Miss Miller." Dave said. "I think I'd
rather stay here and freshen up." Vinny said. "Oh Dave, can we stay with mom and keep her company?" Jewl asked, and Theodore nodded
enthusiastically. "That's fine with me." Dave said. "Miss Vinny, can Eleanor and I stay behind with you too?" Bell asked, and Eleanor nodded
enthusiastically. Vinny nodded and said, "As long as it's ok with Miss Miller." Miss Miller nooded and said, "It's alright with me if you girls are
sure." "I think I'll stay behind too, but you guys have fun." Claire said. "ALRIGHT THEN GANG, LET'S HEAD OUT!" Miss Miller yelled, and
everyone sighed. After everyone had left, Vinny turned to the teen munks and said, "Well now, how would you kids like to meet a friend of
mine?" The teen munks' eyes lit up, Vinny always had the most interesting animal friends. "Is it a moose?" Jewl asked. "Is it a turtle?" Theodore
asked. "Is it a squirrel?" Bell asked. "Is it a penguin?" Eleanor asked. The other three teen munks looked at her. "What? I like penguins." Eleanor
said, and Vinny laughed. "No dears, it's not any kind of animal. Well, I suppose if you wanted to call it an animal, you could call it a kind of cow."
"What kind of cow mom?" Jewl asked. "A cowgirl!" Vinny said, laughing at her own joke. Just then, Lauren Alaina walked in! Jewl and Bell
fainted in Theodore and Eleanor's arms, who just stared open mouthed an Lauren. Lauren giggled, and Vinny looked confused. "Why are you
guys acting so surprised?" Vinny asked. Jewl and Bell cam to, and Bell said, "Miss Vinny, she was the runner up on the last season of American
Idol!" "We spent FOREVER voting for you the night you and Scotty sang." Jewl said. "Yeah, you SO should've won." Theodore said. "Yeah, you're
WAY better than Scotty will ever be!" Eleanor said. "Alright kids, let Lauren catch her breath!" Claire said, smiling apologetically at Lauren.
Vinny still looked confused, so Claire explained what American Idol was to Vinny. Will you sing for us Lauren, PLEASE?" The teen munks all
asked in unison. "Jinx! Double Jinx! Triple Jinx! Quadruple Jinx! Infinity Jinx!" The teen munks and Lauren all said in unison. The teen munks all
stared at Lauren in confusion and shock when they realized she had said it too. Lauren laughed at their faces and said, "I used to play that
version of jinx with my friends." The teen munks nodded, and Lauren asked, "What would you guys like me to sing?" "oo, oo, oo, sing Flat On
The Floor please!" Jewl said. "oo, yes please, that was our favorite song you sang on American Idol!" Eleanor said. "Ok, here goes." "Mom,
Claire, come sit by us, Lauren's gonna sing!" Theodore said. Vinny sat down, but Claire's phone rang, so she had to excuse herself. Bell turned
on her boombox, and Lauren started to sing.
"I'm flat on the floor with my head down low, Where the sky can't rain on me anymore, Don't knock on my door 'cause I won't come, I'm hidin'
from the storm 'til the damage is done, Baby baby baby baby, Tell me why, You gotta make me make me ,Make me make me make me cry oh
Lord, If I told you once I told you a thousand times, You can't knock me off my feet, When I'm already on my knees, I'm flat on the floor with my
head down low, Where the sky can't rain on me anymore, Don't knock on my door 'cause I won't come, I'm hidin' from the storm 'til the
damage is done, Baby baby baby baby, Tell me how, You think you're gonna live without my love now, I don't know why you gotta keep comin'
around, Creepin' up my street oh boy you can't bother me, Now I'm flat on the floor with my head down low, Where the sky can't rain on me
anymore, Don't knock on my door 'cause I won't come, I'm hidin' from the storm 'til the damage is done, You ain't gonna get to me tonight, I'll
lay right here till it all rolls through, I ain't gonna raise my body, Till there ain't no sign, Till there ain't no sign, Till there ain't no sign of you
Cause I'm flat on the floor with my head down low Where the sky can't rain on me anymore Don't knock on my door 'cause I won't come I'm
hidin' from the storm 'til the damage is, Oh I'm flat on the floor with my head down low, Where the sky can't rain on me anymore, Don't knock
on my door 'cause I won't come, I'm hidin' from the storm 'til the damage is, No I'm flat on the floor with my head down low, Where the sky
can't rain on me anymore, Don't knock on my door 'cause I won't come, I'm hidin' from the storm 'til the damage is done, Ohhh, Don't, Knock,
On my door, I'm hidin' from the storm 'til the damage is done." Lauren finished and bowed as the music ended.
"That was amazing Lauren!" Theodore said. "Yeah, you're better than Carrie Underwood!" Eleanor said. Lauren blushed and said, "Oh, I don't
know about all of that." "You really are good Lauren, you always have been." Vinny said, and then she turned to the teen munks to say, "Did
you know Lauren has always lived by me, and she always sings for us forest animals?" The teen munks' eyes grew wide and Jewl said, "Mom,
why haven't you ever told us you live by THE Lauren Alaina?" Vinny blushed and said, I didn't know she was famous, she's a very humble little
girl." Vinny smiled at Lauren, who smiled back. Claire walked in with a worried expression on her face at that moment. "Hey Claire you miss
Laur… what's wrong?" Theodore asked, noticing Claire's expression. "Dave just called, he wants us to meet them… at the hospital."
