Always the Bride

We've been in California for two weeks now...we are enjoying our stay and it's good for the girls to see so much of Scott. Ruby is really bonding with him and both girls love it when he comes home from work at night and they both race to the door yelling "DADDY! DADDY!". It's the first time we have all been together since Ruby came home. However, being the creature of habit that I am, two weeks away from the comforts of my own home is a long time and I am looking forward to getting back to Minnesota. We'll see if we last another two weeks. I'm betting on one more... Not to mention that I miss my dogs and cats. I almost don't know what to do with the responsiblity of taking care of we bought Ila a fish! He is red so of course she named him "Red". And she now tells me "she" is pregnant and going to have a baby. I have visions of trying to get a fish through security at the airport in less than three ounces of water...

The other day, Ila picked out a bride costume at the store complete with gloves and a veil. She LOVES playing "wedding" and her and Scott do the "wedding dance" all the time. I usually smile and laugh and play along until the other day she threw in a twist and wanted to pretend she was pregnant in her wedding dress. Where does she come up with this stuff?!? I was frozen in terror. Anyway, here's some pictures of her all dressed up that I thought were so cute.

Oh my! How hillarious! I have a feeling Red couldn't make it in the x number of ounces of water airport security will allow you to bring on a plane these days. Good luck with that!
