If you don't mind...

...allow me to brag on my beautiful daughter for a minute.

She had a great weekend. She was sweet, loving and obedient. She woke up in a good mood each morning and after naps. She declared Donald and I to be the best mommy and daddy ever. She's convinced that God wants her to marry her daddy. I think that's sweet. (of course, Donald says 'you won't feel that way in 10 years'!!)

We took the kids to the zoo on Friday. We really didn't have much time to spend there, but we renewed our membership so can save money when we go back and we'll also be able to attend 'Member Events'. We saw everything that Ella requested to see, and when it was time to go, she was very understanding.

Saturday, I had a ball game. She ran all around and played...had the best time. We worked on the yard when we got home and she was so entertaining; she followed me around with the toy lawn mower 'helping' me. We kicked a ball around, played with Roley Poleys and drew some cool stuff with the sidewalk chalk.

And yesterday, after church and lunch, she shocked us. She said, 'I'm done eating. I'm tired, and I can take myself to bed.' WHAT?!?!?! What a big girl!!

All kids have their moments. She's not perfect...none of us are...but we had one fantastic weekend!!

What a perfect weekend!!! And about the marry her daddy thing - that's a huge complement. With any luck, she'll find a man just like her wonderful daddy. :)

Take Care!
