My wife & I have this "game." When she goes grocery shopping without me she'll ask me to guess how much she spent. I'm normally right in the ballpark with my guesses. She's only stumped me once or twice over the years. But today I think takes the cake... My guess was only $.18 off! (Yes I guess down to the cent. I started doing it just to be a smart ass but it's kind of caught on since).

I was $.18 over, otherwise I'd be doing my best to get on The Price is Right (in order to win the Showcase Showdown you have to guess the amount closer than the other contestant "without going over"). Oh well!

Did the travel thang over the weekend-- out to Fort Wayne to visit my brother and his family. This was their first time seeing the kidlet. She is an awesome little traveler. She slept most of the way there... and then we couldn't get her to bed until about 1 am. She was all smiles and took particular interest in my brother & sister-in-law's 2 dogs-- a toy poodle (about 5 or 6 years old) and a Golden Retriever/Poodle pup (about 12 weeks old). Both dogs were very good with her as well. My 18 year old niece and 21 year old nephew also thoroughly enjoyed holding and playing with the wee one.

I spoke with one of my sisters on the phone last week before my wife & I took this trip. She mentioned she was jealous and really wants to see the wee spudlet before she's a wobbly wee toddler. After receiving the Christmas photos from us, my other sister wants to fly out to see the little one. She's jealous of her husband who was out here on business last June and got to hold Sammie when she was less than 2 weeks old.

I'm glad that your family absolutely enjoyed your daughter. Kids are precious...

This post kinda reminds me of my "granddaughter" who is a year and a half now. She has a fascination for little kittens is often seen carrying one around.
