Amelia at the polls...

We've had a long day! Amelia woke up around 7am. I fed her, I showered, and then we left for a catering job. This week is a full week for our catering business. I really don't have childcare for Amelia, so she's coming with me! We arrived at the kitchen this morning and as long as little miss had a full belly and clean diaper, she was good to go. I would walk her around every so often, but otherwise she sat and watched us cook the entire time! I thank God for Amelia every day, but on days like today, I feel extremely blessed. She is such a laid back baby and it makes taking her places very easy.

After catering, we went to lunch with Joy, Cody, and Pryce. We ran a few errands for upcoming catering jobs and then Amelia and I headed to the polls to vote! We have a good friend that's running for State Representative, so it was important for us to vote today!!



This was Amelia's first time to go with me to vote, so of course I wanted to document it. :)



Here we are casting our ballot!



Voting for our good friend, DJS!!



Amelia getting her I Voted sticker. The volunteers just loved her. :)



I couldn't stop laughing because that sweet lady above kept calling Amelia by the wrong name. She was talking so sweet to her in baby talk and calling her Amanda. If she said Amanda once, she said it a dozen times. (LOL) She was too sweet for me to correct her. It also made me laugh because there is someone who thinks my name is Amanda and every time I see her, she says, "Hi Amanda!!" And I just say, "Hi!!" I don't have the heart to tell her that my name is Jill. And Amanda is a pretty name. :)



It was good day with my girl.



She's always putting a smile on my face. :)



Love to all,
