Sunday Afternoon Outside

Joe wanted to work on his trailer this afternoon so Ella and I went out to watch..she didn't do so much watching...she mostly tried to eat the leaves of the tomatoes and squash from the garden...
Ella in her walker
Joe painting on the truck bed liner to harden up some weak spots
I know it looks hot but its really cold and windy!!

Help! I can't see!!

Leg Warmers

Today I made Ella some leg warmers because I can't afford the cool tights! I them out of a pair of my knee socks. You can really only see them in the first picture because Ella gets to excited and jumpy when i'm taking pictures! They are way cute and easy!

We were sorting through some totes of baby clothes to give some stuff away and Ella kept trying to climb in! She seemed to like it in there!
She didn't mind the hat until she came crawling over to my crying with
it pulled down over her face! It kinda looked like a big blog of black hair, ha
And finally...I was in the kitchen getting dinner ready and Ella was playing with her toys when I noticed it got really quite..I went to check on her and she was no where to be seen! I went back to the bedrooms and she wasn't there I flipped on the light in the bathroom and this is what I found!
She's a busy one!

Thank you Freecycle!

Today I emailed someone about a "broken" swing they were offering (which was less then 3 month old!). I figured I could check it out and give it away if it couldn't be fixed. I was all ready to tear it apart and decided to check the batteries first..well one of them had leaked. Once I cleaned off the acid and put in new works like new! I feel kind of bad for the people who just gave it away, but I love it! I checked at and it retails for $120! Yah for Freecycle!!

Ella testing it out...
Ella seems to like it too!

Ella Says Mama

Ella has started saying mama..I don't think she has any idea of what it means, but hey, she can say it!

I ordered Ella some costumes for Halloween on ... I didn't know which to get so I got two figuring we'd probably need a change anyway.. (also because the crab was only 6.99 and too cute to pass! ) So we did some trying on this afternoon after church..the kitty is still a bit big and will need an undershirt and some cute tights..but I think they are pretty cute!
Ella in her crab costume..minus the pants

Ella has decided she can get anywhere she wants to no matter what is in her way..Today it was a box and it didn't slow her down at all!
Up on the box playing with her toy!
