Ella has been fighting me when I brush her hair lately. To her credit her hair has been ridiculously tangled. I think the cause of it was her "leash" that goes from her hearing aids and clips on the collar of her shirt. We decided it was time to cut her hair.
Getting her hair washed for the first time at a salon.
She was feeling pretty big : )
The first big cut
There was a whole lot of hair on the ground! Sadly it was not long enough for us to donate to Locks of Love
Then Ella requested to go under the dryer
She was quite pleased with herself!
All styled up....which it never will be again because I do not own, nor know how to use a curling iron.
I am happy to report that Ella LOVES her haircut (so do I) and it is super easy to brush!!!!
Happy Halloween!!!! We had a GREAT day! The kids were both so much fun this year! Their school didn't do parties but did fun activities throughout the day, and they wore their costumes to school.
Ella was "Oreo" (Ariel!)
Hunter was a very handsome military man. "Delta Force" to be exact.
Princess wave and a salute!
Yikes...Hunter what is that thing next to you????
Oh, it's your father.
When Hunter came in and took off his camo shirt I was shocked at just how much it reminded me of Chris. This is what Chris looked like for much of our marriage, when he would come home from work and take off his camo shirt, black t shirt and camo pants. Crazy.
The kids telling eachother about their day. So sweet.
Man I love these two.
Guitar practice! He has memorized Ode to Joy and can play it without the sheet music in front of him!
Nana came over and brought presents!!!!
These little flashlights were a huge hit with both!
We had Jack O Lantern pizzas and then got ready to go trick or treating.
Wait!!! Where did Hunter go? I can't see him!!!!
Ella was NOT a fan of Chris' suit.
I will stand beside Bubba!!!
She finally warmed up to Daddy! I have to say that Ella did 500% better trick or treating than she ever has. She did not try to go into anyone's house and she never once complained that she was tired! Every 30 seconds or so she would say " I love trick or treating!"
I am a mother to two incredible children. Hunter is 8 years old and Ella Grace is 6 years old. My children are my life, my true joy. My life was turned upside down when my daughter was born and surprised us all by having Down syndrome. Since her birth I have come from sorrow and a sense of loss to greater happiness than I ever imagined and I owe it all to The Amazing Ella Grace! Contact me anytime by email email@example.com
My face may be different,but my feelings the same.I laugh and I cryand take pride in my gains.I was sent here among you to teach and to loveas God in the heavenslooks down from above.To Him I'm no different,His love knows no bounds;It's those here among you, in cities and townsthat judge me by standardsthat man has imparted,but this family I've choosenwill help me get started.For I'm one of the children,so special so few,that came here to learnthe same lessons as you.That love is acceptance, it must come from the heart;we all have the same purpose,though not the same start.The Lord gave me lifeto live and embrace,and I'll do it as you do,but at my own pace.-Unknown
