Ready to Ride

So, Rachel and I have arranged Danny and Ella's marriage ever since she was born! These two love playing together, and I never have my camera around, but Danny loves to hold Ella's hand and lead her around the house or the yard! So sweet! Here's hoping they end up together, because we could have the best wedding slideshow ever, showing pictures from when they were little=) Danny's daddy loves motorcycles, so he was showing Ella how to ride!

Danny, Ryan and Ella... each one thinking "quit touching me!!!"

I thought I'd catch some interest with that title!! We bought a house!!! We are super excited! It is in Quail Creek! It's a foreclosure so we can't close on it till the end of June, but we can't wait to start working on it to make it our home! It's very close to our friends the Giles, so that is an extra bonus! Kelsey has been working like mad to get our house ready to put on the market! Ella decided to help him scrape the porch!

Kelsey finished painting the house, so we are so close to having it ready! Let your friends know if they are looking for a cute and cozy 2 bedroom house in North Newton!
I will miss my peony bushes so much! I can't wait to plant new ones!

First PuttPutt Ride

Ella took her first putt putt ride last weekend (in her jammies)!! Grandpa and Grandma Clark's house is always a favorite place for us to be. They have this super old Suzuki little motorcycle that my Aunt won when she was a little kid. Everyone's always called it the Putt Putt because that's the sound it makes! So Ella's Great Grandpa, Grandma, Daddy, Mommy, Aunts and Cousins have all ridden it over the years. She loved it and kept signing more when Kels would stop!

It Starts Early

For those who know me well, they know I have a majorly huge sweet tooth! Always have, always will. I made cookies the other day (something I try not to very much because I would eat all of them). Ella loved the dough! That's my girl=)

Happy Mother's Day!!

Kelsey and I are blessed with the two best moms! They would do anything for us, and they do, cheerfully! They are all I can strive to be as a mom, and I seek their counsel often!
Me and my momma

Kelsey's side of the family

This is the sweet pea that I am blessed to be mommy of! She makes me smile every day, and has so much personality, it is never a dull moment! I thank God for entrusting her to us, and I can't wait to teach her about Him!

Big Helper, Nap Time Sweetness, and Cute Hair Clip

Ok, so while I make dinner, I let Ella play in the fridge! SHHH... don't tell her daddy, I'm sure lots of electricity is wasted on this=) But it keeps her happy for 15 minutes!
Let's see, what can I play with today...

Ohh, this is so heavy!

Time to put it away

I just kept telling her what a big helper she was!

This is how I found Ella during her nap the other day! Pure sweetness, with her arm wrapped around her dolly from Grandma Veer! Adorable!

Ok, if you look really close, you can see a little pink clip in Ella's hair! She doesn't have much hair, so this was really fun for me!!

My sweet girl!
