and don't you even think for a second that I have anything to do with her dressing herself up like this!
I don't think you would find many who would call me "girly girly". I have always been the tomboy! I like to make jewelry, but have never really been guilty of wearing a lot of it! So, let me just say here... I think girls either come to us with that gene or don't. Ellie GOT IT! She also got the COMPLETE and TOTAL INDEPENDENCE gene! She will go in, slap on a pair of heels, and head right up to the "garbage" (Cottage!!) all by her little self!
Since she has been doing that, I have been a little sad about leaving this house! I look forward to new paths and adventures in our new house!
And adventures will be a'plenty with this one next door! Miss Maddi came over on this day, chose her heels, and headed right up to the "garbage" too. These two, together, are so cute! They have a lot of mischief up their sleeves. And they always seem to have an agenda!
Cute, close cousins!
OK, as for Staci. She came over to help me organize the beads in my cottage.
It had nothing to do with the massive amounts of string, cording, beads, stones, sterling, ...... that needed to be sorted !
But had a lot more to do with this...The big fat brace on her ankle! Remember our limo night?! Well, Miss I Am Hot and Will Now Be Taking Off My Shirt, also fell right down the stairs at dinner! Resulting in a trip to the ER on Saturday! It wasn't broken, but it was badly sprained. She was on crutches and hobbled up with this splint on.
I was thrilled, because I had a LOT to do, and she couldnt' do anything but sit there with me and help! WOo HOOO!
There was LOTS to do!
These two little monkeys LOVE to hang out in the cottage! Look at Ellie. She can hardly even believe that she is so lucky to have a little free reign in this usual "no touching" environment!
The fact that the first thing she grabbed was a butane torch might explain why!
And a few minutes later, she had pretty much wiped out a bowl of turquoise!! And, naturally, threw it over her shoulder as if it was a purse!
Look at Ellie's new "shoulder bag".
Miss Maddi also has a thing for accessories!
Have I mentioned how GLAD I am to have GIRLS?! Girly girls, at that?!
