4 Riveting COMMENTS:

  1. Oh, Bridget, famous for shopping? :) I love you so!

  2. It's too bad the shopping consists of going to the pizza shop to pick up dinner or to Fred Meyer to get groceries! I could think of a lot of other places I'd rather go shopping...

  3. That was cute...At least they know that they are loved.

  4. I tried this with Maddox. After about 8 "I don't know" answers, I gave up. It's so great to see what they think. Love it.


Go ahead. Comment.
You know you want to.
And I love hearing from you.
