Anyway... here is Ellie waiting at the door. She is learning to knock and wait. Patience is not her strength!Gabbi was pretty excited about the trip to the neighbors too! I simply could NOT stand not putting this on the blog...i want you to see if you can find a common theme running among all of these photos.
Figured it out yet?Nicole wouldn't cooperate! She should be ashamed. The whole house was in pj's by 7:00. What's up with that?! But look closer!All three of them are in Christmas pajama pants! FIrst off... flannel?! Secondly, Christmas?! Billy actually looks pretty pleased with the situation. I walked in and said, "Sarah, are those Christmas ornaments on your pants?" then, here comes Billy. And I am like, "Are those snowmen?" And then, I can hardly believe my eyes when Nicole comes in and lo and behold there are snowflakes on hers!
We's be's a bunch of rednecks around here! Speaking of rednecks... I went right on back home and got my girls fed! Check out Gabbi Girls' hair now that I am letting her feed herself a little. She gets food all over her and then smears it all over her face and hair.
Kinda got that cross eyed look in this picture. But, I went to the eye doctor this morning, and all's well. Gabbi has a clean bill of health and I am 20/20! He says Gabbi has a wide bridge across her nose, called telecanthus. (I think that is how it would be spelled). It means that there is more skin on the sides of her nose which blocks the white of her eyes as she looks across midline. As she grows, the cartilage of her nose will grow into that skin and they should look less and less crossed.
And while Ellie blew, Gabbi showed off on her hands and knees. Way to go, Gabbi Gull. So proud of you! We are on our way now! As much as Ellie liked the bubbles, they did not compare to Sarah's hair stuff basket! Now I cannot BEG Ellie wear a headband from our house. But over there....DUDE!And not only on her. She also wanted everyone in the room to wear one too! Sarah was awarded the white one.... (note the snag teeth!)And Ellie gave Gabbi this blue one. Uh oh. Does that mean she will wear a headband?! SHoudln't have let yo mama know that! I have some CUTE ones, that your big sister wouldn't wear! Are YOU my headband girl?!
And after a long day of play and visiting the neighbors, I knew I needed to give my girls a big supper. I wanted Ellie to have a choice!
I am not one of those moms who insist the kid eats only what is provided. I want her to have CHOICES!
So, she could choose from Creamy Ranch or French Onion!
Please no ugly emails. I am just kidding! This was only an appetizer! We actually ate a weenie and some cheese later! (Hey Cheeselady... I haven't forgotten you! I will send you a check PRONTO!) LOVE the cheese!! melanie
