We had a few nice days in early March. Days that begged for sidewalk chalk and nice deep breaths of outside air. Girls can only take a few months of inside living before they go a little stir crazy. When the weather hit the sixty degree mark, I issued a decree--WE ARE GOING OUTSIDE! When we are playing inside, it's not uncommon for Kenly to be wearing a princess gown and a crown at any given moment. Since she's freeze to death in her Cinderella gown, I lovingly suggested that she change into pants, a long sleeve shirt, socks, and shoes. I have to be specific with Kenly in regards to clothing or she might come out wearing a tank top and poodle skirt. I had to stiffle a belly laugh when I turned around to find her in this outfit. At first glance it doesn't look so bad, but if you look closer...and then a little closer, you will find FOUR different floral patterns on her body. She was proud of the look, so I didn't want to tell her she'd win an award for being completely wacky and tacky. The girl has a future in rocking "Tacky Day" on Spirit Week in high school.
But, that smile. That smile is anything but tacky. It melts my heart on a daily basis.
