The other night I had that mother's intuition thing going - it was 10:30 p.m. and I just KNEW that Miss Elle was not sleeping and up to something. When I snuck in commando-style to her room there was a flutter of movement and then when I got to her bedside she pretended to be asleep. Problem is she can't fake it and ended up smiling, or shall I say, pretending not to smile. I asked her where her Gameboy was and the first thing out of her mouth was a panicked "It's in Jack's room!" Huh? When all else fails, blame your brother! I proceeded with my line of questioning knowing full well it was under her covers somewhere. After a grueling 4 sec grilling I pulled back the covers and there it was. Lit. Still on. Hmmm, can't make up a lie about THAT ONE. I told her I was very disappointed in her for playing very late at night but moreover that she lied to me about it.
The next morning I awoke to breakfast in bed courtesy of the guilty party. Along with two pieces of (very cold) toast was this 'vignette'. Oh my goodness, she's her Mama's daughter - she even has to decorate an apology! (or should I say a "suck-up") lol
In February we are off to Puerto Plata for my Uncle's wedding in which Ellie is the flower girl. Might I say that this is her FOURTH kick-at-the-can at being a flower girl? Some poor little girls never get a shot at it and here she is at her 4th walk down the aisle. We are close to the movie '27 Dresses' for Pete's sake! This is a beach wedding and the colors are ivory so I was lucky enough to find this beauty on ebay. It's chiffon with a pale brown sash which I think will look pretty with the sand and sea. And ladies, the price was right on this one. Brand new and only $28.00!
Yes, I shopped victoriously!
