Time to Clean Up the Yard!

Ella really enjoyed helping rake and playing in the leaf pile that her daddy created for her. She also had alot of fun burying Lulu and her Daddy!

Halloween 2007

We had a nice time on Halloween. Although Ella was sick, we decided it was important for her to celebrate the holiday anyways. We went to the Obraske's and walked around the neighborhood with her cousin Jack. Jack and Ella are growing up so fast. Just seeing them walk up to the houses saying, "Trick or Treat!", they looked so big....Crystal and I felt a little sad. Ella also enjoyed handing out treats to the kids with Grandma afterwards.

Family Vacation to Rhode Island

We had a wonderful time on our vacation last week. We rented a beach house and stayed with my family all week. Ella was really great and had a great time at the beach and the ocean (although she did not want to go near the water. The waves scared her). The ocean breeze was strong enough to hold a wand in the air and make bubbles. She had fun doing that with her Aunty Lisa.

The next 3 pictures Ella and I had gone to the beach one overcast afternoon together. I had a ball taking pictures of her by the ocean.

This was her first day at the beach. Keith took her and played all afternoon until I came and met them later. I had a little bit of fun at the casino...... :)

Ella and Eppe (Thats what she calls my Dad) had a good time as well. They played ball and made sand castles together.

Keith really took a dive to catch the ball Ella had thrown to him. Funny, I dont remember seeing him land. Especially with a smoke in his mouth. Way to go Daddy!

We had to teach Ella that throwing sand was not a good thing. Here, we got a great action shot of her throwing Sand at Amu (Thats what she calls my Mom)

Tubby time was fun in the sink. She loved to play with the water.

Ella and Lulu

Ella loves to harrass her puppy right now. She puts her in a headlock and wrangles her around anyway she wants. Wonderful Lulu just sits there and lets her do whatever she wants. Its almost painful to watch and I am constantly telling her to leave Lulu alone. Here, Ella is watching cartoons with her puppy. A quiet moment together.....

Ella and Her Sprinkler

Ella got a sprinkler from her cousin ther other day so we set it up the other morning and played in it. She is a little hesitant to new things, and wont run in and out of it, but I thought she did good justing being able to get wet and play with it.

Ella saying Happy Birthday to Keith

Keiths birthday was on Wednesday and she has been saying this ALLLLL week!

At night, Ella will jump in our bed just befroe her bedtime and watch "toons". She likes to snuggle in mommy and daddy's "warm binky". This was a cute shot I took of Keith and Ella snuggling. She doesnt like to snuggle with us very often, so I have to capture it when I can!

Weekend Up North

We went up to the Obraske's cabin last weekend and had a wonderful time. All of the guys built this swingset for the kids on Memorial weekend and I did not think Ella would get as much use out of it this year as she did. She is a cautious child normally, but she just climbed right up and played all weekend. We pulled the pool out and she splashed around for a while. Ella also loves to go "Vrooom" in our cars, so sitting in Daddy's truck was quite fun for her too.

"The Popsicle Slideshow"

Slideshows are fun!

Ella and her Popsicle

Sunday was a beautiful day and we spent most of it outside. It was time for Ella to have her first popsicle. I started taking pictures of her, but after looking at all of them, I found that my most favorites were of when she was done with the popsicle. She just kept chewing on the stick and her eyes became so expressive. These are my faves.....
