Before today, I never understood the pleasure people took in dressing their babies up in costumes. That changed for me today, because Elsie was dressing up with a great purpose: free food. How cute!
She was definitely the cutest cow in the herd. I had suggested to Stacey early in the week that we dress up to get free food at Chik-Fil-A as a means to do something with the kids and maybe spend a little time away from the television, the Internet, and the Wii. Surprisingly (and happily), Nephew and Niece got involved, along with one of Niece's friends. Stacey, Julie, and I also got dressed up.
Now, have I ever told you before that I can't donate blood, that blood banks won't take it from me? It's because we lived in Germany for six years and therefore I am "at risk" for Creutzfeld-Jacob's disease, better known as Mad Cow Disease in humans. Looks like it's genetic.
Some other fun goings on: While at Dollar Tree, we picked up a swimsuit for $1 and Elsie went into the pool for the first time.
After which I sat with her in the big tub and gave her a bath. How did I get such a cute kid?
