Fun Weekend with Friends

I am sorry about 3 posts in one day! I just wanted to write about our fun weekend with friends. Amanda and "Ms." Pat came this weekend for some fun shopping! My sweet husband went to work at 5 am on Saturday so that he could be home to have "Daddy and Ellie Football Saturday!" The girls and I went to Tis the Season and all over Franklin doing some retail therapy! Thanks girls for coming...can't wait until next year.

The Baby Jesus

Ellie loves the Baby Jesus...any Baby Jesus. BA gave her an advent calendar and she has carried around the Baby Jesus for weeks. She puts him in her shopping cart, Cozy Coupe, purse...just about anywhere. She can always produce him when you ask her. Our friends the McMullen's gave her a Fontanini Holy Family for Christmas last year. We opened it this morning and she was so excited about the Baby Jesus. I got her all ready for nap time and realized that she still had him in her hand. I guess there is no better person to nap with than the Baby Jesus! I pray that she always loves him as much as she does now!!!!

***Update: Ellie was crying so I went in to check on her. Minnie Mouse and The Baby Jesus were kicked out of her bed. Not sure if they were causing trouble or what...

Ellie's New Favorite Snack

Ellie has decided that her "new favorite" snack is Charley's dog food. I think they have a little co-op going on that they didn't tell us about. Charley loves to eat her food and vice versa. Brian caught her in the dog food this morning before work. I decided I would make her a little necklace out of that I could know where she was. Here is what I found in the laundry room after lunch. She was having a blast digging in the food. When I asked her what she was doing she looked at me like I couldn't possible be talking to her. When I asked again, she slowly put it in Charley's bowl. She was only trying to help!!!

Daddy's girl...

As I was getting Ellie ready for church this morning I decided to try on my coat from when I was little. It was a very special coat...Ladye made it for me and then her grandchildren wore it. I just wanted to see how long it would be before Ellie could wear it. Ha Ha....TODAY! It fit beautifully! She looked so sweet and got so many compliments at church. I am pretty sure we were all around 5 when we wore it...Ellie is 16 months. I guess it is fair to say she gets her size from her daddy! When we got home from church, I decided to try the dress on that Ladye made for me. Guess fits too! Meg wore this to our rehearsal dinner. (She was in Kindergarten!!!) I am raising the jolly green giant. (But she sure does look sweet in my clothes!!!) Thanks LaLa! What a fun day.

Trying to get a Christmas Card Picture

This morning we went to the Opryland Hotel to try and get a good picture of Ellie for our Christmas cards. It was fun...but she wasn't really into sitting still for a picture. She seemed more like the Grinch that Stole Christmas. I think we got several good ones. Thanks to Aunt Nan for her beautiful new Christmas dress! We love it!

Lipstick Jungle

Ellie was playing so well in the playroom this afternoon. I thought maybe..just maybe..I could run to the bathroom without a 16 month old and a chocolate lab. This is what she looked like when I came back. She was also chasing Charley trying to put it on his nose. I promise I wasn't gone 30 seconds. I have no idea where she even found the lipstick. I had been looking for it for months!! I guess we will have to work on how to correctly apply lipstick!

Monkey's Treehouse

Tuesday, we went with our sweet friends Anna and Caroline to Monkey's Treehouse. Monkey's Treehouse is a really cool place for kids to play. They have everything you could possibly imagine. Of course, Ellie's favorite was the truck. Thanks to the Bryan's for spending the morning with us!
