Sprinkle, sprinkle!

Take one guess what Miss Ellie Sue did this past Friday!  
As I was getting ready to leave for work, KK was readying the little ones for a day of fun in the sun!  Ellie was running around like a chicken with her head cut off because she was so excited she was going "ou-side!" 

I wanted to get a picture of her, but as usual, the only way I could get her to stop was to say, "Hey, Ellie, let me see your cute ponytail."  Immediately, she stopped, and I got this...
Remember, I usually only get a picture if she is sporting some new heels or a necklace or 14 bracelets ... or a ponytail!! 
Annnd, she's off!
SO this is the big surprise.... SPRINKLER!! 

Note her hiked up shoulders!  I think it was a little shocking to her at first! 
This is one of her presents for her birthday.  Or as she likes to call all of her gifts, "That's Ellie's Happy Birthday Present"!  (She is going through a bit of a stingy phase!)
Naturally, any water fun involves her BFF, Sarah, from next door! 
Seriously, how cute is that bikini?!  Seriously? 

And have I mentioned how much I LOVE my babysitters?!  KK gets here, and it may be 90 degrees at 10am (NOT uncommon), and if Ellie says, "Ellie needs to go ou-side." Because Ellie "needs" a lot of things these days, OUT they go.  KK really loves my kids and just goes with the flow to play whatever they want!  They went to the Children's Museum last week, the park this week, and have even been to the indoor play place, the Jungle Gym.  And... YEEHAW.  She got her fall schedule managed to be with us this fall too!  WOop Woop! Thank you, KK! 
ANd Mr. Billy, we will send you the bill on that yard maintenance! 
Hope you all had a restful weekend.  Have a good next week.  It is the only week of July 27th, 2009, you will ever have.  Use it wisely!

Can I steal KK for a few weeks??!! Gotta luv the stingy phase...my girls try to justify in some way why they don't have to share it, shouldn't have to share it. The reasons they sometimes come up with make me laugh tremendously. This too shall pass right.
I can't get over how big E is getting, how much her looks are changing. She and Gabbi girl are just beautiful

So cute!!
Ellie looks cute and older with her ponytail!! I gave Claire her first ponytail earlier this summer and it had the same affect. Just makes them look more like a little girl than a toddler!!
