One More Reason Why I Love My Hubby...

Good evening everyone.  I am happy to report that Mama is back in town!  Yahoo!  I am complete again.  Ha! She and daddy got back yesterday evening.  We were so happy to see them.  We went over after church and spent the evening catching up.
Last week, we weren't sure if they were going to get to come home or not.  Had they not been able to come home, we were going to stay the weekend.  Hubby took today off just in case.  Since they were home, he had a free day.  He could have spent the day doing whatever he wanted with no one home.  He could have but did he?  No.  What did he do? He planned a special "daddy Darbee day" for he and Darbee Rae.  Needless to say, I had one very excited little girl last night.  I wasn't too happy to have to get up and head to work and leave those two in the bed, but I knew what a fun day they had ahead.  They   hubby needed rest.  I gave him the camera and asked him to take pictures of their adventures.  He's so good.  I had tons of pictures waiting for me to see when I got home.
Here she is getting ready to go.  Notice her new puppy "pinky." 
That was a gift from Nana and Papa.

The highlight of their day was a trip to Monkey Joe's.
Can't you tell what a silly goose she is?  Love the pose.

She loves playing in the princess castle. 

Luckily for us, Monkey Joe's is in a shopping area. 
There is a toy store and a candy store within walking distance. 

Where did they go from here? 
Papa and Nana gave her candy money last night that had to be spent at the candy store.

Such major decisions!

What did she choose?  One of my childhood favorites....

Candy cigaretts.  Ha!  How silly they are. 

They enjoyed lunch at Chick-fil-A and then headed to "the earring store." (Claire's)
I met them there and helped her pick out a new purse. 

They had such a fun day.  I cherish those times they spend together and am so thankful that he will take time to spend with her.  These will be memories she will treasure forever. 
Yup..he's a keeper. 

It's been a rough few days here at work.  I will post more about that in a later post.  Just keep me in your thoughts and prayers.  They are much needed right now.

It has been another rainy day here in the south. Thankfully yet again, we dodged the storms. 
I hope all of you are safe and haven't had storms or have stayed warm with your snow.

Until next time......
