Conversation wth Ella

Me- "Ella, are you ready to take a bubble bath?"
Ella- "I don't take baths anymore, I take showers!"
Me- "OK, are you ready to take a shower?"
Ella- "I don't like to take showers!!!"

I am so confused!

Birthday Party!!!

We had a blast for Grace's birthday party. Grace picked 3 friends and we hit the mall. First stop- Build a Bear. Next to McD's for lunch then back home for cake and ice cream and presents. After that, everyone just hung out and played. The weather was beautiful! It was a great day.

The Crew- Draye, Lizzie, Ella, Grace and Grace Madison

In her element!

Saturday night, Grace got to attend the pageant at the high school. She actually hung out with Tori, one of the contestants, and helped her get ready. Grace was so in her element. When they brought her home, Tori's mom said the people sitting in the row with them enjoyed watching Grace as much as the pageant! Needless to say, I believe we may have a pageant in our future.
