Ellie and the dreadful camera

Remember when Ellie used to LOVE the camera and would smile on command every time we wanted to take her picture??

I have been saying for a while that Ellie HATES pictures now. No, like really. She sees a camera and darts the other way.  Like when my family got our pics done a couple of weeks ago, for instance. She would NOT look at the camera. She seemed to look at everything else! She enjoyed eating the dirt and picking at the grass. But definitely NOT looking at the camera. (Jessie managed to get a few where she was looking, thanks to her hopping and whisteling skills behind the camera.) 

So for your viewing pleasure, I thought I would put up a sequence of photos that I took today. I wanted one good, cute one of me and Ellie...with hopes of getting one with her smiling-- And this is what I ended up with.

I think it's a lost cause, folks.

                                                      HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!

Jelly Belly Ellie

Ellie got her first of many birthday cards from her sweet great-gramma Noni. She even got some $$! I look forward to receiving a birthday card from my Grandma every year and now Ellie gets to experience this tradition:) Thanks Gramma!

Ellie gets in to EVERY thing! She had a party when she spilled the bag of chips. what a cutie

Introducing.......Jelly Belly Ellie! hahah I laugh so hard when I say that. I thought of this idea for her costume last night and stayed awake late to make it. Of course, my sewing machine HAD to I sewed this bad boy by hand. I thought it turned out rather nicely....but let me be real here...I wasn't smart enough to make sure that it fit her before I sewed it. Of COURSE I did that!
So this morning as I was dressing her, I realized that I had to take it apart just to get it over her head, then sewed it by hand while it was on her! How I did that? I still don't know....I was chasing her around the house with my needle and thread. Now, that is a picture that I wish I had. ;)  But the end result turned out cute I think. It probably won't last her through the day, but I got a picture, right??

                                                           This jelly bean had a rough morning

                                                   I LOVE her high top Converses!
    I got them one size too big as you can tell... I wanted them to last a long time, okay?! But by the looks of these bad boys, she will be wearing them until the fourth grade....;)  kidding

                                                         me and my girl just hangin out

Instead of hiding who you are just to post a rude comment to me, how about you grow up and tell it to me yourself? Just a thought.
