Is there anything cuter...

than this sight: a daddy with his two little girls?

I think not.

We had a busy busy day. After church visitation and the customary lunch at McDonald's afterwards (which by the way- we had a coupon for buy one get one free and the lady totally didn't ring that in correctly and charged us... that's coming straight out of our non-existent retirement fund!) Gonna take me a few days to get over that! Anyway, Maddie and I headed out to do some errands for church projects. We hit SEVEN stores! It was so crowded and busy in the stores and on the roads. She was a gem though and was rewarded with a big fat gum ball. She was so fun to spend time with. She is such a little person these days, you know? Making comments and chit chatting with me.... she was very enjoyable company. She is in the habit lately of using cliches in irrelevant ways. She says "You're barking up the wrong tree!" all the time for no apparent reason. It's quite humorous to watch her emphatically tell Eden that she is barking up the wrong tree and of-course Eden had no idea she was barking at all. So Maddie tells her again so that she will really know for sure that she is indeed barking up the wrong tree. It could go on for a good half an hour. When she does wrong, her line is "I'm so so sorry; I will try to do my best next time." And this is said very dramatically with big remorseful eyes turned up at you, searching your face for evidence that you are actually buying it.

This picture was taken in the evening when we again went out to try to find some needed things, which we were not successful at. But I got a Chai out of the outing so well worth it! ; ) By the time we came home for the night, and Seth headed out for the weekly youth meeting, my feet and purse were in sad condition. My purse managed to become to most disorganized catastrophe of a purse on the planet. If an award existed for that prestigious title, I would be the winner hands down. My feet as still very organized, thank you, but tired and invoking their "Slippers Only" rights.
