Look at this beautiful fairy princess! So sweet, so innocent. Hmmm, well at least half the time. As we stayed with friends this last week, she proved she is changing, and becoming her own self! It's amazing and strange to watch your child change. She's definitely letting everyone around her know that she has an opinion, and knows what she wants to happen. That's good, I know, but can't I just keep the sweet little cherub instead?
Maddy and I had a lot of fun on our "girls trip". It was 10 degrees outside when we woke up on Tuesday morning, so that really dictated when and what we were going to do. So finally, it hit 34 and we ventured out! We walked around beautiful downtown, got coffees, stopped at a bakery ant got free leftover bread to go feed the ducks with. It was sunny and beautiful. We crunched golden leaves under our feet, and felt the cold air in our lungs when we breathed. We walked to the river and fed some very cold and hungry ducks! That night we got ready to go to a local church Harvest Carnival for Halloween festivities. There was pizza, and face painting, and plenty of games for the little ones to play and win candy.
Our trip was good, but it's always good to come home too. Zach was so thrilled to see us Wed. night that he had planned his own little welcome home for us! ( He had been so bored without us he had watched lame movies on TV which included Planet of the Apes, and Attack of the Killer Tomatoes....WOW, was my trip WAY better!) He picked up a pizza and a movie, and bought me flowers and champagne, and an "I love you" card. Boy, does this guy know how to make points!!I was completely amazed, and a very glad to know he really missed me, it was only 2 nights, 3 days!
