Our Own Annie Oakley

So, my dad got Abby this pop gun from Cabela's for Christmas and she was immediately enamored with it (I wonder if the fact that Dad had soldered her name into it added to her affection?). For some reason, she took on this weird posture and facial expression each time she would go "hunting". After a while, she added the Mickey Mouse ears and now cannot use the gun without the ears. Also, I have to call her "Hunter Mickey" when she's in full garb. Of course, all of her preschool friends loved it as well and we immediately had to set forth certain rules. #1 Do not shoot people... not even pretend ones... not even bad guys... no people! #2 Take turns. Believe it or not, number 2 was easier for them to follow than number 1!

The second expression is totally priceless. I want to be there when she looks through all of these pictures as an 18 year old. I think it will be so hilarious.

I love the look an Abby's face...she's so serious! What a cutie. She's growing so fast!

She's taking her hunting duties seriously. Maybe you should send her after some ducks.

Darcy does NOT understand how to not shoot people. I blame her dad. Or video games. Or both.

Those pix are totally priceless! Make sure and keep them somewhere safe so she can see them when she is older
