Outsmarting the little kid.

Mary Allison, Gabbi Girl, and I went shopping a couple of days ago.  Ellie was hanging with dad at the condo.  
Well, I think you may need a little background info.  First, you KNOW how much Ellie loves accessories!   And you KNOW how that kid is a monkey and can FIND A WAY to climb her little self atop any countertop despite all my attempts to block it! 

So with that said.  Ellie cannot keep her little self out of my travel bags of make-up, jewelry, etc.  It is like a moth to a flame!  She cannot resist the temptation! 
So, while we were out shopping, we saw this little bag and thought, Ellie HAS to have this! 
Then we bought all kinds of costume jewelry to fill it.  
Ellie was pretty fired up!  
I am telling you, this kid would sit and play with jewelry for hours.  (No, I am exaggerating.  But for Ellie a long string of stillness for MINUTES feels like hours!!)  
Look at this expression.  She can hardly believe her eyes!! 
Here is a close up of her little bag.  
And she KNOWS it is HERS.  If anyone else picks it up, she says, "MY bag!"  Yes, we have entered the era of the "MY"!  My shoes.  My nasty.  My shoes.  My. My. My.  Cue the eyeroll!
She really loved these fancy cuff bracelets, because mom and Masson are a fan of the cuff, and she thinks she is big stuff! 
As for this orange beauty.  At the time of this posting, it has officially bitten the dust!  We are salvaging the cool orange cording though, for a multi strand anklet.  Reduce, reuse, and recycle!  That's our motto.
And I am pretty sure that Ellie got this little pink and white polka dot bangle in her bag because Measson thought it was cute.  I'd bet I will see it on my little sitter sometime in the next week.  
No, Ellie.  DO NOT bite the rhinestone, ummm, I mean diamond, off your new necklace!
later taters.  Oh, and I will get the brand of my green shoes for you.  They are the!!

I have been SO busy with my son's high school graduation and the celebration party that comes with that....I had to play catch up!! Look's as if you are having a FANTASTIC time at the beach!! What a great girl Measson are so very fortunate to have each other! As Lindsay are the!!

On a side note....I know you are on vacation and all, but could you send up a prayer. Little Princess Lindsay had a heart transplant this morning and it went superbly! Could you just send up a prayer for continued good healing and complete recovery!?!

Thanks Mo!
