I know, I know

I have been a blogging slacker. I'm sorry. I've been busy this week, I have been shopping for our new house. Well, not really shopping, more like wishing I could buy things while at the store, trying to imagine my new house..... I did manage to pick up a few things, new shower curtains and towels for both bathrooms (gotta love 50% off at Kohls) and new canisters for the kitchen (gotta love cheap stuff at Walmart : ) Oh yeah and add in three days at Ella's school and Chris having a little surgery on Wednesday and I guess I have been busy!! (Chris had another kidney stone attack while at work, not a good thing while driving a police car and carrying a gun! So, off to the urologist he went and come to find out it is the same stone, it never passed. So as the doctor put it they had to "go in there, lasso it and pull it back out." You can use your imagination from there, but the good news is the next day he was back at work and we are hopefully done with it for good!)
I did manage to snap some pics though, a couple of videos too, though I am to impatient to download the videos right now. So, here are some pics. Oh and before I forget to write it down Ella now says "boofull" which translates to BEAUTIFUL, she may hear it a hundred times or so a day!
Ella and her baby watching Backyardigans. I've been trying to catch her when she isn't paying attention to the camera, I'm a bit sick of the cheesy grin, or more like the evil grin she does, as seen a couple pics down....

Addy has those jammies! Glad to see you haven't fallen off the face of the earth!

I love her with her dolly! And I think Payton needs a do rag ... her hair is constantly in her face...constantly! It drives me insane!

Sorry about the kidney stones. Our friend has that problem and for him, it is from unhealthy diet and no water!!

BTW I think you know we had the same cheesy grin smile. Payton sort of grew out of it, so I hope Ella will too! It sure is funny though!

I've been idea "shopping" and dreaming of my new house too. It's fun!

I hope Chris is completely mended now. That sounds awful to go through.

Ella and her faces are so funny.

I love her cheesy grin - it made me smile and laugh out loud! I remember being her age and 'practicing' my smile for the preschool photographer that was coming that day. I was soooo worried that I'd forget how to smile on cue, and boy did I practice! I am sure my practice-smile ended up looking much like Ella's!
Such good times!!

I just love the pics of missy with her do rag! She does look "booful", and of course she hears it all the time--duh! Glad to hear Chris is back to normal, but he really wasnt normal to begin with--ha! BTW, what is up the look on Hunter's face in that last pic. He looks like he wasnt into getting his pic taken while Ella has this sparkling smile!! Love ya's all--Aunt Tami and family

Ah, look at those beatiful smiles!! She is SO photogenic!

Glad the kidney stone procedure went well (did you ever see the Deadwood on HBO? There's an absolutely horrifying episode about trying to get a kidney stone in the old west in the 1880s...yikes!). Anyway, I totally understand about the house--I just keep looking at photos I took on our walk-through, trying to imagine what to put where, what we'll need, what colors to paint, etc. It's driving me crazy, but I still have 3 weeks until settlement when we can get in there! There's a Kohl's right near there, so I think we'll be visiting there often...
By the way, I LOVE the cheesy/evil grin!
