The Great Giraffe, and A Little Update

On Tuesday, Molly and I went to a really cute place here in town, it's called the Gingerbread House. Our family just loves going there and taking all of our visitors there too. A really nice lady who always gives Molly free cookies whenever we are there, turned an old farmhouse into a little coffee shop. But it is not just exclusive to coffee and tea, because we live in Wisconsin you can get beer there too! That never gets old to me, I am still so fascinated with it! Plus she makes homemade pizza, lasagna, garlic bread, etc, etc. All the pies, cakes, desserts, everything they serve is made fresh every morning. They have a huge wrap around deck and an ice-cream shop outback. Plus, chicken and ducks! Molly loves to watch the animals roam around, because let me just say, they never stay in the pen! Here she is, faced smashed and all "talking" to the chicks!

Getting right up there with the animals!

This was my one good shot of her standing still! Don't you just love those lime green sandals?! I thought you all would!

The over the shoulder glance...

Waving goodbye to all the animals, in her southern little accent she for some reason has, she says bye like a little southern old lady!

Now back home to do what we do best, watch the Backyardigans! She kissed the DVD case the whole way home from the library! Don't you just love Molly's bow?! Well, my friend Jennifer makes bows, bow holders, and paints! Check her out!
In other news, my step-dad will be having surgery to remove his brain tumor on Wednesday, July 22. Eric will be gone all next week at church camp, so my fabulous in-laws will be Molly-sitting all next week. We are still working out all the details of travel, etc, but Molly will be Ohio bound for the week. Then I will be in New York for the surgery. I am ready to get this over with! But I know Phil, my step-dad, is more ready for it to be over with then me! We have had so many emotions going up and down over the last 2 weeks or so. You can check out his progress here...We will be updating it during the surgery and after it too.
I thank you all for your continuous prayers and encouraging words. You all mean so much to me, and I probably couldn't pick you out of a line up. Which if I am called to pick you out a line up, we got other issues!

That place sounds awesome! I love neat little places like that!

I am loving Molly's bow and skirt, with the lime green sandals. She's looks so cute!!! I will have to go check out your friend's site!

I will be praying for all of your travels and for Phil's surgery.

The Gingerbread place sounds really neat. Good to know that if I ever get to Wisconsin I won't have to worry about not being able to find a beer. ;)

Lots of cute Molly photos!!

I'll be keeping tabs on Phil! I pray everything goes well!

Love, love Molly's entire ensemble. Too cute. I am not a mommy who dresses the kiddos all cute like that, but I wish I did. I usually just put them in plain and simple clothes because I lack expertise in the fashion dept, if you know what I mean!

The place that you guys visited sounds awesome!!!!

will be keeping Phil in our prayers as well as the rest of you. Love the sandals by the way, that is so my color. And what a true lady the way she is sitting in the chair-lol way to cute.

Molly looks super cute in that outfit, bow, and shoes! She is too adorable. I am about to check out your friends site!

Hope the surgery goes well. I will say a prayer!

Molly is such a cutie in her little outfit. Love the sandals,..but especially how the bow matches the skirt.

Praying for Phil and for safe travels for you.

Take care,..and God bless!
