I scream, you scream

Yesterday I took Savannah for a girl's afternoon out. We went to the library, ran errands, and then got ice cream at the Creamery on 9th. She picked green ice cream. Lucky for me, she was not in her Kill Everyone with Her Mind Powers and then Cry and Moan Because they Didn't Die the Exact Right Way She Wanted mood. She was in a good mood, the kind where she walks around saying things like "Thank you so much" and "Your shoes are very beautiful."

I caught the girl in the background with the laptop smiling/chuckling a few times, like when Savannah gave out her trademarked banshee shriek, and when she started monitoring the soda fountain in order to inform me that pretty much everyone but her was allowed to get soda. "Look! She's getting soda too!" I told her that was because Savannah is smarter and makes good choices and will likely keep all her teeth. Also the girl chuckled when Savannah got ice cream on my blue Banana Republic cardigan, which I did not find quite as funny as she did.

All in all, it was a good time and I'm still the favorite. Which is what it's all about, really.

Freaking cute. Good thing you have pictures of "your" kids to throw up on the blog!

She really is so cute, and when she's naughty, she's hecka funny! (Okay, so I know it's not cute to her parents, but I can sympathize with them as well, having a toddler myself). What a good auntie to take her around. Makes me wish I had sisters close by.

Dad, you are totally scaring off all the comments. Simmer down, now!

Just got off the phone and thought you should know...my GRANDMA (Mimi) reads your blog now. She thinks you're hysterically funny and ought to be publishing a column in some paper, if not your own dang book. She agrees with my idea...print off your archives and send them in!

Savannah is so cute!!
I think I'm the only person I know who isn't in love with the BYU Creamery. Cold Stone . . . or even Coneys taste better to me. (Although a little double chocolate fudge chunk is never out of the question anywhere.)

Absolute darling.

What of it?
