I’m writing this from the recovery room of Covenant Hospital’s SurgiCenter via my iPhone (I needed to try posting from my phone).

My daughter, Alex, just had her tonsils and adenoids out. Man, that’s some crazy kind of everyday surgery (Alex would probably say no to that ‘everyday’ comment and say this is the worse pain she’s ever had). But it’s really cool what it’ll do for her.

So, to tide you over till my next post, here’s a quick pic of her getting ready for surgery and then the results, her tonsils (yep, we get to keep ‘em).

We took the girls to Dallas a few days ago to see two of their favorite things: The American Girl Store and The Jonas Brothers. Yes, I was there. Was it fun going to something that had absolutely no possibility of any sort of “male-ness” involved? Uhhh, well, uh, let’s just say I had fun watching my girls have fun. So, without further adieu, evidence…

“THE” Store

“Hey Dad (eyelashes batting), come in and spend some money!”

Yes, they have it all.

Notice what this doll has in her hand. Then look at the next image.

Says it all.

Yes, that’s $20 to put your doll’s hair in a braid.

But Alex is happy.

Everybody was signing one of the Jonas Brothers’ bus.

My girls.

An image from the back, just to give you an idea of the massive number of screaming girls. My guess is that there was 1 male for every 100 females (probably not an exaggeration).

That’s Nick singing. The one thing that’s nice is that they’re still humble. They love the audience and really work hard (tons of sweat) to put on a good show.

Toward the end, they were elevated on these little platforms. It I were Disney (their owners), I’d have a harness attached to each one of these guys. Too much $$$ at stake.
