Zoo Trip

This past Saturday (yes the cold, windy and rainy one) my mom and sisters and kids headed to the Zoo. My sister have Zoo passes, so my mom and I can get in free! Sweet! I had Ella in a super cute shorts outfit, but it was freezing when we got there, so luckily I had some pants and a sweatshirt in her diaper bag!

Favorite Play Things

Here's a few of Ella's favorite things to play with these days:

Her Scooter

Ella loves walking around the house in my stocking cap, and wants me to pull it over her eyes all the time!

This is my newest attempt to keep Ella busy while I make dinner! Marshmallows!

Easter was so fun this year! Last Easter Ella was a month old, but this one she was running all over the place finding eggs and looking for candy! Saturday night we were at my Grandpa and Grandma Duerksen's for our annual "more candy than you could ever eat hunt!" We get so spoiled over there. We each come away with a whole bucket full of candy!
Grandma Tilson

I found some!

I found these bunny ears, and Ella loved them! She would not take them off!!!

I look forward to Thursdays every week because I get to drop Ella of with her Grandma Veer (which we both love), and go have amazing fellowship and study the Word of God with these amazing women!

We have been studying the book of Daniel and I have learned SO MUCH! Thanks to Debby and Sarah for getting us together and leading each week, and for letting us meet in your wonderful homes! We eat pretty amazing food together too and drink delicious coffee! I LOVE my Thursday mornings!

One Year Pics

We were once again blessed to have Ella's aunt Christy takes adorable pictures of her. She didn't cooperate too well, but we still got some super cute shots! I have the best one's up in my house, so you'll have to come over and see them! Enjoy! You'll have to copy and paste the following, my link thing isn't working right.
