Birthday Girl

Happy second birthday to Ellie!

I can hardly believe she is two years old!

Some of her favorite things:

Food: Whatever she decides at the time. She is a toddler, after all!
Activity: Whatever big sister is doing, and jumping on the "blamblableen" (trampoline) :)
Characters: Barney (Lord, help us.), Elmo, and Mickey Mouse. She is a lot like her sister.
Sayings: "Whatdadoin?" (When you ask her what she's doing, she'll say, "Good.")
             She also has great manners. She is very good at "thank you" and "excuse
             me". We're working on"please".

We love you, Ellie, and we're so glad you came to be a part of our family!!!

Stage Girl

I really should make this a "Miraculous Mondays" post, as it appears I'm finally trying to blog at a regular pace again. But, alas, this one is about our little preschooler.

A few weeks ago Gabby's preschool presented the chapel program for the elementary school. I'm so sorry I don't have the video uploaded. Maybe one of these days we'll enter the digital age with our camcorder too. But I do have a few pics! They did some pretty cool stuff like saying the books of the New Testament and singing some songs.
This kid claims she's shy. Ha. Look at the little poser. It took her five minutes to get to her place on stage because she was striking a pose for the camera!

I have no idea what this kid is doing. . .

"I like to talk and whisper; I like to hum and sing."

Best buddy announcing he was going to pray. So cute!

Saturday Sharing

A few things that caught my eye this week:

LOVE this post about adoption. How many times do we try to put a band-aid on a wound, instead of looking at the source of the infection?

This living room remodel is gorgeous! It's amazing what a little elbow grease can do.

Sophie has a most hilarious post about a 100th birthday celebration. So Southern, so glad.

I wasn't a huge Hanson fan when they hit the charts back in the day, but I love their new song. Try to figure out who is playing the tambourine. :)
