Monday ~ Autumn wanted me to put curlers in her hair, so we came home early tonight so we had enough time to do it. I love this moment I captured of her reading to me w/ curlers in her hair and wearing her cute cupcake pajamas. So sweet & innocent!
Tuesday ~ Here is what her hair looked like this morning after we took out the curlers. It’s not fun for her to sleep on those foam sticks, but she loves how it makes her long hair so curly and pretty. I’m glad she’s a girly girl & wants me to do stuff like this.
Wednesday ~ Tonight for dinner we had steak, which Autumn calls “the good meat.” She’s so spoiled & has such expensive taste. She wanted to help tenderize the meat, so I taught her how. She did a great job!
Thursday ~ It was Deb’s birthday on Monday, so a group of her friends (me included) got together tonight at a local place that makes crepes. It was fun to celebrate with her and have a Girl’s Night Out. I’m so thankful for her friendship. She’s a remarkable woman!
Friday ~ Mary, Melanie, Karri and I went to the local high school’s production of Pride & Prejudice. The kid who played Mr. Collins did a fabulous job. We went out to eat at On The Border after the play and had so much fun talking and laughing and eating.
Saturday ~ We went to Subway & shared a sandwich like we usually do. I told Autumn to smile, but she did this instead. She was trying to do the Hawaiian “hang loose” sign, but instead it looks like she’s doing “call me.” LOL!
Sunday ~ Autumn wanted Papa to wrestle w/ her, and Emma Dog even got in on the action. When they were done, Autumn built a fort out of blankets & had Papa & I lay in there w/ her to watch TV. Childhood joys … love it!
