Okie Insanity

___


So this would be my husband washing our car in the rain, and yes, there are icicles hanging from that house in the background. What would make an otherwise intelligent man do something this, err, less than intelligent? First impressions. The man even bought some hubcaps. You talk about high style...

Yes, we finally carted the old Camry off to the local Auto Auction. Good old Yoshi brought in a whopping $1100, for a loss of about $3000 to us, but we were thrilled, because she almost died on the way to the auction. (You know, smoke coming out the tail pipe, no acceleration, funny noises...the works.) We figured it up, and we still came out better off, financially speaking, than if we had leased or purchased a more expensive vehicle, so, as I said, we're thrilled.

Below is Mim, watching Daddy wash the car. She was quite upset that I wouldn't let her go out in the 35 degree weather to participate, so this was our compromise. She just looked incredibly cute there.

My kids watch out the windows like that all the time!

That picture of Mim is the cutest--it says so much.

Super cute! But I think I'd have taken the car to an indoor car wash. Or don't they have that out in the sticks?

That picture of Mim is just too cute. I love the little chair. It is funny how children have no concept of how cold it can get. Atleast she was good enough to just sit there...my Caden would have gone out anyway.

Reminds me of another little girl who used to watch at that door. She is adorable...good genes no doubt.

Amazing how a small compromise will always do the trick. I agree with lilibeth...good genes.
