Ella doesn't wear clothes, but when we travel I sometimes throw a sweater on her for the drive. She started the trip with it on - it made me smile.

Today marked the start of Ben's senior year of playing for Benilde. It was a bittersweet game - so excited for hockey to start, but sad that this is his last year - he played well and the made me smile.

Dinner with Katie, Brendan, Erin and Megan + Spamalot at Wayzata HS = a good night. Makes me smile tonight.
Ella has a bedtime routine, I just follow. Around midnight/1am she decides it is time to go to bed. She waits patiently close to the door until I am ready - then waits by the bed until she gets a lift up has her two snacks and then curls in close - watching her wait for me to comply to her routine makes me smile tonight.

I don't cook, I wish I did. Binge watching the first two episodes of Master Chef Junior tonight and these kids know more about food than I will ever know - that makes me smile.
Gophers played Ohio and I had visitors. Gophers lost, but I won with great company - that makes me smile.

Fourteen years ago today, when I pulled into Margrette and John's driveway after work, I got the call that Josie was born. I am grateful to have this beautiful, fun young lady in my life - no one makes me laugh as much as I do when we are together. (I also work my butt off when you are around)
So yes Josie, you make me smile today. Love you lots!

Ella's pink pig really needed a "bath". When I put the pig in the washing machine, Ella stayed really close to the washing machine waiting for it to come out - going in and out to see if it was out yet. Her concern made me smile tonight.

It's Fall play and Musical season! Tonight was my second play, a musical Willy Wonka by the students at Mounds View High School. It was a fun musical with a chance to win one of 5 special golden tickets in special chocolate bars. I didn't win a golden ticket, but enjoyed the chocolate. Good start to the fall season, looking forward to the next two weekends - made me smile tonight.

Tonight I went to Our Town - The kids did a fabulous job with the bonus of Tom Young, one of the HS teachers as the Stage Manager. If you go, go early to get a good seat, it is theater in the round, seating in the stage - tonight was full house. Great job! Made me smile tonight!

I thought I had it on Ella's grooming record she was not to get bows after grooming. Not only because I think they look goofy, but she tends to get mattes when they are in. They forgot today, they are an odd pastel color and look goofy, but they made me smile.

All it takes is one small person... Today during communion a dad was carrying a little boy, maybe two years old, who had everyone one he touched smiling. You see he would catch someone eye and wave at them. At first I thought it was someone he knew, but then he waved to me and others as he made he way forward. As he did this he would have a huge smile when he was acknowledged and more so I watched others smile and laugh as that small wave changed their mood. He made me smile and start my day off right.
