But Casey's braid today may have been one of the best braids I've ever done. Seriously.
We cleaned Chan's stitches today. ***So scroll past the following pictures if stitches gross you out.** Although they are very small. And when I say "we" I totally mean Chris. It looks good. She goes back next weekend to have them taken out. And really, the white bandage makes it seems like the wound is some 6 inch, gaping open kind of thing. Its not. 1/2 inch at best. But she feels cool in it and Casey is jealous, so the white bandage is kind of important.
Multiple times she has mentioned that she would like to have a Harry Potter scar on her hand. I'm thinking about telling her it looks like Harry's scar whether it actually does or not.
Today was actually a pretty great day. We looked at living room furniture (it might be time to replace the 15 year old couches that are hand me downs from my parents). We stopped by an antique store that we've been passing for 3 years now (we will be continuing to pass it from now on). We went to Old Navy, Target, Michael's, Loft, Home Goods, Kohl's, Macy's and the Gap. Whew! It was a lot. But fun for me because I would have felt such guilt going without everyone. It was not fun for Chris because it was shopping...with kids...on a Saturday. Such is life.
