Wednesday night we went to church and after church Trey and I both got SO SICK! I think we had a stomach bug because we were both in the bathroom all night long and all day Thursday too. Praise the Lord Ella did not get it, but Trey and I weren't too much fun for her and didn't do a whole lot of entertaining her. She was such a trooped though and I am so thankful for such a good baby.
Her hair in the front is getting long and always pokes her in the eyes. She always wears a bow when we go out, but she does pull them out a lot of the time. So, I put in a little baby bow and told Trey to pick up some hair bands on his way home. She left in the little bow for a while before pulling it out.
She loves this little rocking police motorcycle. She will just rock so hard I am afraid she is going to just go all the way back. She is getting to be such a big girl. It is so weird. It is like all of a sudden she went from baby to toddler. She is even starting to look less and less like a baby.
I think this is hysterical. I was bored on Tuesday when we woke up and just wanted to play with her hair. No, this look probably won't be repeated until she has more hair, I just had to do it and then I had to take pictures to show Dad. She is zoned in to Yo Gabba Gabba. Oh, that show is so weird, but she just loves it. It is the only show she will watch. I am glad though because I don't want her to watch a lot of TV, I would rather play with her.
She also had a great time putting the box of building blocks on her head.
So funny! This morning I went to my Moms group and hopefully when she wakes up we are going to go shopping. Isn't my life so exciting?!?! It is a wonder that I don't have like a million readers with posts like these! Haha! I promise they will get better.

I told Trey not to get me flowers, but he did get me chocolates. Don't get me wrong, I do like flowers, but there is a light fixture I want more and I didn't want Trey to waste money on something that will die when I have my eye on something I want! We got Ella Little People Princess building blocks that are pink and purple and she has loved playing with them. My mom has some at her house, but it is a farm, so of course I would rather my girl have a castle. =)
The next morning we went to church and then we went out to eat again after church. This time, Glorias, which is Mexican food. This wasn't really planned, I just was craving some chips and hot sauce and I love theirs. So, I got two Valentines meals!
And this was my Valentines Day three years ago. Trey and I were dating long distance so we had to wait until that Friday when I would come in town to see him to celebrate our Valentines. That night, February 16th, he proposed and it was one of the best days and definitely my best Valentines Day to date.

Then some of my beautiful baby girl by herself. She was so brave this afternoon, she even sat in it. She was like, this doesn't phase me a bit!So I sat with her. Trey on the other hand enjoyed making very large snowballs...and throwing them! He did this numerous times and it never got old. He was like an 8 year old. We walked over to the golf course and there were a tons of kids, and adults, having snowball fights. It was so much fun! I am sure by tomorrow most of it will melt off and it will be yucky outside.

We got Ella all bundled up and took her out in it. Isn't her hat cute? That is what Summer got her for her birthday! I love it! Ella didn't care too much about the now. What she doesn't realize is that she probably won't see this again for like 5 years or so. Trey of course decided to build a snowman. It really was a sad little man, so after he was done I went and tried to revive him a little. We also made some snow ice cream. Trey had never had it before, but I remember my Mom making it for us those few times it snowed when I was little.

Well, this little punkin' showed up and we had some fun playing on the ground before Miss Priss woke up. She wasn't too happy when she woke up and really doesn't like sharing her momma. After a while though she woke up more and really enjoyed watching Hunter. She does not understand though that Hunter is a real baby and not one of her play babies. Her play babies laugh and say mama and dada when you press their tummies and she kept wanting to press his tummy and I know that she was trying to make him talk!Hunter finally went to sleep around 11:30, his usual nap time is 10, but of course they never stay on the same schedule when they are with someone else. Ella went to sleep at 12 and I had 20 minutes to attempt to get on the computer before Hunter woke up. His little catnap seemed to make him happier though so we played some more. Ella woke up after an hour and a half nap and was in a much better mood and really wanted to make Hunter feel welcome. She got all of her toys (a bunch) out of her basket in the living room and would bring each of them to Hunter. So sweet!
I love this picture of the two of them. She is checking him out and making sure he knows who is in charge.
Hunter however looks back to let her know he is no push over! I had a fun and busy morning with these two. I hope they grow up together and are great friends. I had a brother and a sister, but I always wanted cousins. I just always thought it would be so fun at Christmas and Thanksgiving to have a big family. Now that my siblings and I have kids and are having more I think we will finally have that big family.

Yep, he shaved it into a handlebar mustache. He also told me that Hulk Hogan sports this same look and then proceeded to show me Hulk's moves. Of course, I grabbed my camera...after I made fun of him for a while. Praise the Lord this look was gone by Sunday morning.
This morning we went to church and then tonight we went to a Super Bowl Party. We had a great time and Ella had a good time playing with her friends. And just because, here are some pictures of my baby.

Her funeral was a celebration of her life. The pastor had known her for 40 years and told sweet stories of her and her husband who had been married for 59 years! Yes, 59! That alone is inspiring. I think the part that was so touching and so inspiring was this: the pastor quoted Philippians 1:21 "For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain" or in the New Living Translation "For to me, living means living for Christ, and dying is even better" and said this is how Pat lived her life. How amazing is that? He then specifically called out her grandchildren by name and told them to listen carefully, that their Grandmother had made a difference. Her life had touched so many people, especially women around her age who she had reached out to and mentored and encouraged, like my mother.
Everyone in that church knows Pat was a Christian, knows she is in Heaven. Her Jesus was so real to her and she made sure everyone around her knew that and knew HIM. Isn't that amazing? Don't you want people to remember you as encouraging, as inspiring, as having made a difference? Isn't it wonderful that her faith in Jesus Christ was so alive that it was contagious? I just can't think of anything better to say of someone after they have gone home to be with the Lord than that. When you see Jesus don't you want Him to say "Good Job!"?
To love the Lord and live your life serving Him and be recognized as having made a difference for that is truly inspiring to me.
Trey came to town on Saturday and Sunday and we went to his Grandmother's house to visit her and then we went over to Trey's brother and sister in law's house to see Ella's new cousin. Ella fell asleep on the ride over. She must have been a very tired girl because she even stayed asleep while I got her out of her car seat, carried her in, and napped for another 45 minutes while we all talked. When she finally woke up her Grandpa posed with his two grand babies.
The toys however were very fascinating! She even tried to climb into the swing. I think she might be just a little (hmm...A LOT) too heavy for it though.
I was so horrible about taking pictures while I was there since I didn't ever really feel 100%. I did get a picture of Ella and her Papa though. He was in Hog Heaven while we were there and just loved on her.
Caleb and Corey came to town and Caleb wanted to love and hug on her too.
Unfortunately Ella was not wanting to love back! She just wanted to play!
She loves chasing Caleb around and playing with his big boys toys. Caleb likes it for about 2 minutes until Ella takes one of his toys, then he is not a happy camper. Kyle, Jennie & Hunter came in town too, but poor baby Hunter wasn't feeling too good so I didn't get a picture of them.
