On our way for breakfast.

This is a kind of typical day. Ellie gets up and when I am not paying attention, she gets into my make up. This make up is IN a make up bag, IN my bathroom drawer, IN my bathroom, where Ellie has been told numerous times not to go. And yet.... here she is. Looking like she has bruised her eye!

And this is little Gabbi Girl.. always bright eyed and bushy tailed in the morning. Up at the crack of dawn saying, "Mom, let's eat."

I told the girls if they'd get dressed, I'd take them to the donut shop. Ellie chose this little ensemble.

I thought it was funny that they are so polar opposite! Ellie has on her denim mini skirt, and grabbed a baby to mother. Gabbi Girl chose a hat and mittens that looks and feels like a puppy.

They each suit their personalities.

And while we are looking at their differences. Poor ol' Gabbi. She is never gonna have the tan that Miss Bronze has! She will be more like her mama! However, the girl has some GORGEOUS hair!!

Today, we are having volunteer craft day at my house. I may try to shoot some photos throughout the day. we are getting our Shake 4 Jake goodies ready!

Get ready... lots of Shake posts this week. Remembering Jake!! And get ready to GIVE at the telethon this year. If you have a vacation home, a condo, or a business which could donate something to our auction.. we would be very grateful! One of our best live auction items last year came from a blog reader in Alabama! We appreciate that Nena Beth. And we are getting it again this year! So cool!

Contact me at if you have something you think may go well in our auction.

Thankfully just makeup!

Mo, I've said it before and I'll say it again......I sure hope you are still "blogging" when sweet Ellie becomes a "real" teenager!! Your life is going to be soooo interesting at that time (full of fun, but interesting). I LOVE IT!! You have two sweet and precious little jewels.....huggers, BJ

love the photos. Two of the best things I have with Believe on it are the little disc porcelain necklace and the Believe cross that you and Stacy made while in Memphis - I wish you would make some more as folks want mine and there is no way I would part with either of them. Have a fun day crafting!
