Hmmm... the blogs are getting further and further apart
Sannah and DH are on a date. Tonight is the Girl Scout Sadie Hawkins dance. Her first dance. I had visions of the shopping together for the outfit... the primping of the hair... the photos I would take. Instead, all I got was "We don't NEED to shop, it's western style and I already have jeans" and "Why should we do hair? I'll be wearing a hat" (with the requisite eyeroll and "you're an idiot" inflection). And the photos... I was lucky to get what I got. She wasn't having it... she wanted to GO!
I tried to get her to at least wear a button down shirt, which she quickly vetoed as LAME. The cute little prairie skirt... also lame. I swear the child has turned into a little dementor, sucking all the happiness out of everything and declaring it lame.
So here's my big stud of a cowboy and his little cowpoke princess. I sure hope they have a blast!
Cookies are DONE!!!!! I am happy to say they are all delivered, shipped, collected for and monies turned in as of this morning. This was our initial pickup... over 600 flipping boxes! Though mommy and Uncle Jimmers pitched in with work orders, she sold well over 200 of her total sales door to door, and worked it at the cookie booth as well. She was pretty darn proud of herself!
And you know... it's been since before Xmas that I posted anything here, so here are some pics of her with her favorite pressie. You know I scrambled to make sure she would have the items she declared were the very most important. But in the end, when she went back to school and wrote about the very best Christmas present she received it was none of those items. It was the $5 sled I bought as an afterthought. She LOVED it and keeps praying for a big snowstorm, which hasn;t really happened since a few days after Christmas LOL. She got pretty daring and even worked herself up to the jump someone had constructed
