We went to the mall tonight to run a few errands that we have been putting off for a few months now. I didn't intend to get Annelise's ears pierced, but we wandered past the Piercing Pagoda - and I thought I'd just inquire about the service. Well, before I knew it, we were sitting in the chair, marking spots for her new earings! Daddy couldn't stand to watch, so he took a short walk while we did it. Boy, does she look adorable! And the best part...she only shed a few tears that lasted just a few minutes.
