Daddy's Surprise!

On Monday I was on the phone with Russ when he told me he had a surprise for Brecken. A sucker? A candy bar? She would have been ecstatic with either one so I didn't put much thought into it. But, boy, was I wrong! New Bedding!! Needless to say I was shocked at his thoughtfulness. And Brecken... Well she couldn't stop squealing :)

Thanks, Dad!!!
Ok, I have to finish the story... After spoiling Brecken, Russ reached into his little surprise bag and pulled one out for me. A new shirt! Wasn't that sweet? He knows that my favorite thing to get (yes, shallow) is new clothes! So he went from "World's Best Dad" to "All- Around Greatest Guy" in about .2 seconds. But then, I already knew that :)
And just because she's cute:

Does the scene from A Christmas Story come to mind when Ralphy's dad says "You look like a pink nightmare!"? I think she has Ralphy's same expression :) Of course, she's much cuter... he he he :)

Six Heavenly Hours!!!

She did it! She slept from 12:00 am to 6:00 am, no peeps or squeaks! How did we celebrate? I took her out to the rocking chair for an all you can eat breakfast! Of course I am not expecting this to be the norm, but I have to admit, it was really, really nice! But as much as I LOVE sleep time, my favorite time..... awake time :)
