Helping Papa Work

Elliott can't pass by Papa's office with out whole body shaking and jumping. At that point we HAVE to stop and visit.

The Dinner Table: The One Place Your Camera Should Never Go

Yet here I am invading everyone's nice meal in hopes of capturing my favorite time of the day. Often this is the only meal we eat together as a family and not for my lack of trying.

My Ballerina Mouse

This girl is growing up so fast. I'm not going to lie, I just spent the last 45mins looking at every picture I have of her on the computer. Now I am feeling especially reminiscent. Everyday she has something new to share with me and everyday it catches me by surprise.

My favorite quote from our mama-big-girl-mouse-Angelina-ballerina-errand-run:
"I smell something bad! *sniiiifffff* I think it is a chipmunk"!


Take a close look. Yes, those are pigtails.

Story by Bella

Once upon a time there was a big woman and a little girl named Bella and Mama and she had a little brother named Elliott. They heard a thump thump thump. Do you know what that was? Does it sound like a monster? It wasn't a monster it was just Papa being silly!
