Déjà vu

Even though Ellie is bigger, she is still trying to climb between Greg's dresser and the wall.

More leggings from Aunt Amy. And a darling girl to model them!

Ellie's new obsession...

... and she managed to grab and dump out the entire bag while I was feeding Lynlee.

Primary Reunion

This morning we had a fun reunion with the Primary ladies.  Cache was so nice to Ellie and let her play with him and his toys.  The only thing he didn't like was when Ellie gave him loves or tapped his shoulder to get his attention.  Hmmm, Ellie needs to learn how to communicate with cute boys other than Davis.

I wanted to commemorate the event, and asked Brooklyn to take our picture after she got home from preschool.  She did an awesome job!

P.S.  I found out yesterday that amazing Darci has started a blog.  I have read a few posts so far, and it is so good that I can't wait to read all of her archives.  Way to go, Darci!  Welcome to the blogging world.  (Nina, you really do need to start one now and spend less time on Facebook!)

Dinosaur Museum

Yesterday morning, the girls and I joined Davis and Elizabeth at the Dinosaur Museum.  It is the first time I have ever been, and it was nice to get out and push Ellie in the stroller.  Lynlee did awesome in her wrap (the first time she has been in it - she just slept the whole time) and Ellie loved digging in the giant sand box.

This morning while I was in the shower, Ellie brought in buckets one by one and lined them up on the bathroom floor.
P.S.  Not to make anyone jealous, but Lynlee slept in until 11:00 this morning (last feeding at 12:30 a.m., but she didn't really go to sleep until 3).  Crazy!

The Bear's Nose Lights Up...

...and Lynlee is fascinated by it.

Wake up sister, please

Lynlee and I partied all night last night, and she didn't really fall asleep until 6.m. So today, I tried to get her to wake up and play as much as possible. At this point, Ellie crawled up on the couch next to her, and tried to get her to wake up, but it didn't work!

Cafe Rio mix-up

Dear Heather S of phone number (801)440-XXXX with pick-up time of 5:19 p.m.,

I apologize that we ended up with your order of 3 salads, while you (presumably) ended up with my mouth-watering, soul-satisfying, hunger-satiating pork enchiladas.  My husband paid for and got the receipt for the right order, but came home with your bag.  If you had been on time, perhaps there would have been no mix-up.

On the bright side, Ellie enjoyed the grilled chicken.  And, apparently it is hyphen-day.

Today I tackled that drawer - the one in my kitchen desk where I throw thank you cards and projects and info to file and Christmas cards and pictures that come in the mail.  I knew that somewhere in the recesses of that drawer was a church ABC book that was an Enrichment meeting project a while back, and I want to make it for Ellie.  Rather than just digging it out, I decided to clean everything out.  I am amazed at how much I was able to recycle before I got to the bottom, and even more amazed by how much I had stuffed in there!

Davis and Pizza

After a holiday hiatus, we played with Davis again today.  Elizabeth brought a frozen pizza for lunch, and - miracle of miracles - Ellie ate it and liked it!

Ellie eats ice cream for the first time...

... and eats it right off of Daddy's spoon.
