Another Best Shot, with - surprise! - books

And Lil Girl!

And I can tell that you are all shocked.

No, really: I've been trying to broaden my horizon, and look for more things in my everyday life to take pictures of, and so far have gotten quite a few shots of the clocks in doctor's offices and waiting rooms, but they aren't very good (bad light + still trying to figure out manual mode = not the best pictures), so they're not post-worthy yet.

As opposed to this shot of Lil Girl, which I love.

I took this last week while she read me her version of Cinderella: We were baking cookies (of the slice and bake variety) and waiting for another auntie to visit, and Lil Girl wanted me to read to her. I kept having to get up every 3 minutes to check on the cookies (because we still have a suck-tastic oven: New house; new stove!), and she was getting perturbed. So I asked her to read one to me, instead. I also got a little bit of video, where she explains that "Cinderella was a be-a-u-tiful baby! and there were witches, but they's her sisters." Since Lil Girl is sister-less, I think I'm going to have to help her realize that sister does not necessarily = witch, but that's for another day.

On this day, we baked cookies, and read each other stories, and snuggled on the couch.

And if that's not beautiful, I don't know what is.

Oh, wait: I do... Check out some examples over at Tracey's, and enjoy your Best Shot Monday, all!

Oh, and an old school Cinderella book...with cookies, it all really does sound perfect!

Ha, I just saw that in your Wish List is the Dr. Horrible sing-along blog!
Love, Love, LOVE Dr. Horrible...

What a perfect way to spend the day. I love the softness of the photo.

What a cute picture indeed! Kids and books should always go together. :) Even my little boy likes the Disney version of Cinderella book we have at home. Although the cookies might get his attention first. LOL

I love this shot...everything from the soft blonde hair peeking out from up top to the sweet nail-polished fingers grasping the book. What could be better for a little girl than Cinderella?! I teach a whole Cinderella unit with my 7th graders, and we read all different versions. What a great story...and a great photo!

Is there anything better than books, children, cameras, and cookies?! Your post has it all!

I love the hair sticking out of the top and the little painted finger nails.
