Thousand Gifts 417-435

My Monday morning started off much the same as Sunday - bright and early with Rory (yes, the 6:00 a.m. wake times continue). She loves to be my hairstylist (that's kind of on hold for a while) or give me a pedicure, etc. And since my feet are killing me these days from chemo and other medicine side effects, I was more than happy to let her spend an hour (oh, yes, a whole hour) rubbing my feet and legs. She had the best time chatting with me and pretending to be McKenzie with a 6 year old daughter. And the best part is, she  has no idea I got the best part of this deal. :) And I apologize for my feet making yet another appearance on the blog. 

By the way, does her new shorter hair look cute or what!

Rory's haircut is adorable! Makes me think about having Nora's cut short again. She's been refusing pigtails lately which leaves her looking much like Cousin It!

You've got one special little girl there! She loves her mama! Snuggling is grand and I'm sure those foot/leg rubs are divine!

Tell Rory to save me a foot rub!!
Grandpa is a little too rough, but sweet, huh! Such a sweet little girl, (and her mommy).

Is there anything more heavenly than foot rubs? I think not. And, it is without question a fact that your daughter is the cutest child I have ever seen. (It's okay, my children don't blog. They will never know.)
