The Dinosaurs.....

Long ago Ella's cousin Jack taught her about dinosaurs. Sometimes she talks about them and tells us that they live in her room and come out to play with her at night. Such a creative imagination. She's telling me here that they say "ribbit" and they play hockey with her (go figure).In any case, the end is my favorite.....

Our Trip to Florida

Well, let me start off by saying that there was a big surprise for me and Ella just before we left. Keith had booked a ticket to go to Florida with us some 6 weeks ago and I did not find out he was going until the night before we left. I was SO surprised. Apparently everyone in the world knew except for me. But I was glad he was coming....then Ella and I did not have to miss him. And I did not have to wonder what in the world he was going to do home alone with the dog for a week!

We had a wonderful time in Florida. We drove down to West Palm beach to visit my grandmother (Memere). We stayed at a hotel and swam in the pool and had a nice visit. Then we drove back to Orlando and spent the rest of the week at my Auntys house (Nancy and John). We did take one day and go to Disney with Ella. My Aunts friend gave us free one day passes. It was so nice of them and saved us a bunch of money. Ella had a ball, but we were all very exhausted.

We all enjoyed spending time with my family. I dont get to see them often since they live so far away. It was a great vacation. Thank you to everyone for all you did for us.

Celebrating Jack's Birthday

We went to the Obraske's last night to celebrate Jack (her cousin) turning 3. Ella tried with all her might to hold back from opening Jack's presents for him. We had a great dinner and then everyone ate cake and ice cream.

Dinner With the Carroll's

We went out to dinner tonight with Jason and Lori and thier two boys Jacob and Joshua. We went to a place called Norman Quacks. The food was delicious and the kids got to run around and be silly for a little bit. The boys were teaching Ella how to play Star Wars. Guess who she got to be? You got it! Princess Leia. She attacked them with her tickle power! How cute is that? The boys are 10 and 4 and they are so good with Ella. Thank you for the nice time :)

Joshua let Ella try on his sunglasses.

Ella, Joshua and Jacob hamming it up for me.......

A little bit of brotherly love........

Ella, getting a moment alone with Joshua's glasses.

Beautiful Afternoon

Friday was close to 60 degrees, I think. It was a beautiful afternoon and I wanted to get some fresh air. Ella and I went to the park and walked around for while and played on the jungle gym.

Being Silly......

Ella did this little jump and when I clapped, she bowed and said "Thank you Mommy, Thank you". Of course this doesnt measure up to the first time she did it....I was laughing my butt off. But this is a glimpse. She kept wanting to do it over and over.
