Ella's Big Announcement

In case you can't read the shirt it says:
I'm going to be a big sister!
Doesn't she looked thrilled! ha, she had just woken up from a nap, but these were the only pictures I took! It took people awhile to figure out what the shirt meant, but when they did we got great reactions, ha! Anyway, my due date is Jan 18th so i'm just about 11 weeks..and we get to find out what we're having mid August!

Pool Time!

Last time we let Ella play in her new pool, we thought it was kinda lame because no water would stay in it..well as we were putting it away joe noticed there was a drain hole and the plug was out the whole time! ha, so this time we corked the hole and it was much better!

I got soaked!
But the picture turned out pretty cool!


She loves to lay on her tummy and splash

Just a few random pictures....
This is the tank top i'm working on for Ella for the 4th of July. I just bought a regular white tank from Old Navy and then sewed on the cute buttons. I'm still playing around with the ribbon placing but I think it looks pretty cute there...I'll also be ironing on one of Bethanys 4th of July word arts, but the machine was down at kinkos so that will be another day!
Look for updates in a few weeks!

All ready to go to the contest!
This was her outfit for age, we decided to throw in her sailor suit and
see if we could put her into the costume contest also..
She found the necklace this morning when we were trying to
give her a bath, and wouldn't be happy until I let her wear them!

We had a family dinner this evening for Fathers day, and I thought I took more pictures of other people, but once I offloaded them, they were all of Ella! So here are a bunch of her!
And Happy Fathers Day Dad, Joe and Phil!
Ella LOVES corn on the cob!
