2. Ella is talking now! Her vocabulary is growing by a few words each week. Some of her latest words are juice, cheese, fish, shoes, teeth, and Tigger (thank you, Mrs. Nise-y). She is at one of the most difficult points of toddlerhood: maximum mobility and minimum reasoning. Quite the handful these days, but her personality is delightful and I do love having a little lady around. This morning she insisted on a dress and can almost form the word!
3. Last night I was invited to soak in a friend's hot tub. I soaked. I sipped an orange julius. I was totally relaxed. And then I dashed home, scribbled everything off my Christmas list, and wrote in bold marker HOT TUB. And then I faxed it to Santa.
4. Have I mentioned my camera broke while on vacation? Yes, tis true. I did manage to snap this little moment of joy in my daughter's life before the lights went out on my camera.
I think I have a similar picture of me at this age, but I am crying from meeting Santa (hope that doesn't affect my chances for the hot tub.)
5. Garrett is gone for the weekend and I checked out some old movies from the library, Anastasia with Ingrid Bergman, and Sabrina with Audrey Hepburn. Not sure which one I will watch first but I am stoked!!!! Classic Chick Flick Movie Night (CCFMN) begins at 9:00. All ladies welcome. Seriously, come on over and bring some popcorn while you're at it (these kids eat popcorn like little termites! Three bags devoured since I started this post...sheesh) And if you want to bring some Dr. pepper, well, that's just icing on the cake.
