This weekend's going ons...

future blogger (probably plotting all the things she can write about me and her dad)

sporting her shades upside down

The day after
Thanks-giving, I had the bright idea that our family should go get our Christmas tree. Of course it was raining and really muddy. But I was not to be deterred...much to the chagrin of Esther and Gene. We tramped out into the field of trees, getting soaked and very dirty. Esther got scared when someone used a chainsaw and really wanted to go back to the car. Gene indulged me, but I'm pretty sure I heard some mumbling under his breath. So all in all we had a grand ol' time.
Looking for the perfect tree

Looks like she's wondering if it's time to go yet.
Friday evening, a.k.a. Black Friday, we headed to Target to buy some white Christmas lights. Gene, always the good sport, looked at me a little askew when I suggested this trip. Luckily, most of the crowd had already ravaged the store and left. While there, we picked up a booster seat for she's now a big girl at the table.

This picture is a little misleading...Esther looks like she's posing sweetly for me. Actually, she was tickling my feet when I caught this shot. No's still a pretty picture.

Cheers, Kiy
