Birthday Shout Out

We couldn't wait to give a big birthday shout-out to the best mother-in-law ever! Today is Mrs. Dabney's (Nana or Bubba as she was called this weekend) birthday! She came and spent the weekend with us to celebrate her birthday and worked the whole time! My mom thinks that Nana and Pop should have their own traveling working roadshow! All Nana has to do is point that finger...and the job is done! We love you and we hope that your birthday is FABULOUS!!!!!

Not much going on here...

It is not secret that Ellie loves a Mimi! (for the few non-family readers..all animals...especially dogs are Mimi's!) She wakes up in the morning and drags the ottoman to the window to look for Pogo. (Pogo is a yellow lab mimi that lives next door.) Yesterday, she and Charley both were on the ottoman looking. I had to inform the neighbors that we were not stalkers...just very simple minded people who think that dogs are ROCK STARS!!

We were running late for a playdate yesterday, and I told Ellie to get ready and head to the back door. After grabbing everything I needed, I looked on the back steps and there she sat...pretty as you please! She wouldn't wear that hat one time this winter, but let it get over 70 degrees and we need it!

Watch out Beyonce

Ellie's favorite song is "Single Ladies" by Beyonce. (I know this will make my mother cringe...because she LOVES the Direct TV commercial!) The video came on this morning and Ellie went to town! Gotta love how she strips down right in the middle of the song!

Charley has competition...

When we first got Charley, we took him to McDonald's for his birthday and bought him an ice cream cone. He was so confused when I told him that he could have it. He took the whole ice cream cone down in one bite. I am pretty sure if he has a brain...it was frozen. Well...Ellie could give him some competition! She went after that cone and took it down. The ice cream was dripping off of her face. (This was after she was dipping her chicken nuggets in caramel sauce. (actually...she was dipping the nugget and sucking the caramel off!) I am such a good mother...it is all about the balanced meals in the Shelton home!!!!

Ellie loves Drew!!!

Ellie loves Drew Clark!! He has always been so sweet to her. He "babysat" her at a Vanderbilt football game in the fall. She walked right up to him and held his hand all the way to the car. Thanks Drew for taking good care of her!

Ellie's first birthday party

Ellie was invited to her sweet friend Reagan's third birthday party today. The party was at the fire station and then on to McDonald's for more fun! Ellie had a blast! She was such a big girl going through the fire truck and listening to the siren. (Since she doesn't want to be a princess, maybe we could be a firewoman!!!) Thanks Reagan for inviting us. Happy Birthday!
