The Big Night

After a week's worth of anticipation and ten outfits later she is ready.... yes ready for her first official daddy-daughter date. It has been the topic of the week. She couldn't decide what to wear (but then again that is always a tough decision for the little Miss). She finally settled on the above combination. I'm not so sure about that sassy pose but I am just happy that the chosen outfit coordinates.

Every morning the first thing she has asked is today the day? Hope you have fun little Miss. Today is the day. Have fun with your daddy.... I'm off to see Twilight with my friends.

It is 2:30 AM.. do you know what your child is doing?

I woke up to an abrupt cry... not one the one from a child scared but from one that was hurt. I thought to myself, did she fall out of bed? No, upon entering her room I realized that was very far from the truth.

We had cleaned up her entire room before bed. Not a single toy on the floor... but when I entered her room at this very early hour of the morning the lights were on.. and there wasn't an inch of carpet to be seen. The toys covered the floor. My daughter was dressed from head to toe in princess attire (not exactly the pajamas I had put her to bed in earlier that evening). The only reason I had been awaken by this little escapade was because there were SO many toys on the floor she had tripped while wearing her princess shoes, fallen and hurt herself. That's what the crying was about.

3 going on 13

Ellie getting ready for preschool. She puts on her skirt and we proceed with the following conversation.

Ellie: "Mom I want to wear pants with my skirt."
Mom: "Ellie you don't wear pants with your skirt you wear tights."
Ellie: "But Mom, all my friends wear it like that."

I was in complete shock. I didn't think I was going to be hearing anything like that until my little girl was 13 not 3!

PS. This kitchen window sill is where Ellie waits to keep on eye out for her Dad's daily return home from the office. Sometimes she is waiting for a VERY long time....as in she starts looking out for his return as soon as he leaves!

Our Little Princess

Preschool Field Trip

Ellie went on her first field trip with her preschool.
They went to Kelsey Creek Farm.
Each of the kids helped make the straw beds for the animals.
Ellie is doing her part bringing the straw to the stables.
Checking out the animals.
The highlight was the 500 pound pig chomping on an apple but I missed the photo opp for that one.

Fall Traditions...

Pumpkin soup, pumpkin bread, pumpkin cookies... we are LOVING Fall!

The little miss hard at work!
