Comic relief

Things have been a little crazy around here. Last week we had more layoffs at work, then Monday my employer filed for Chapter 11 protection. And Tuesday we were in the national news again when our governor was arrested and charged with being very, very naughty -- we put out an "extra" edition, the first time I can remember doing that since Sept. 11, 2001.

Anyway, this morning I thought it would be fun to see what was on the memory card in my camera . . .

and it was.

Ting Ting put on this old costume dress to be a princess, then I had the great idea to dig through a box of toys from her cousins to see what else we could find. That's why she's wearing a Snow White crown, Tinkerbell wings, a Christmas purse, a Cinderella magic wand and Snow White shoes.

She wanted to watch the "princess" episode of Dora because she was dressed for the part.

Later she changed into her nightgown, but kept most of the accoutrements. Except when I called her to the table for dinner, she calmly removed and hung up the wings, then removed and carefully placed the wand, shoes and crown in a safe spot.

This was from Thanksgiving weekend. We had the Christmas decorations out, and she loved this bow. So my mom put it in her hair.

But enough with the mamarazzi.

I was thinking about you this week, and hoping things get better soon...

I'm sure it's nice to come home to such an adorable girl, though!

I've also been thinking of you. Such uncertain times for the Trib and our (maybe not so) great state.

She. Is. So. Adorable!

I'm sorry to hear about the rest, but I'm glad you have such a cutie to lift your spirits.

she is so cute. Better to remember her pics than a corrupt government!
