Quiet for too long

When Reid is quiet for too long, I start to panic. I panicked too late today.

He had already attempted to "help me take out the trash". And yes, those were his words.

I never knew cleaning paper shredders could be so much fun for the high-energy 2 1/2 year old.

But as you see, it was LOTS of fun for Reid.

But all fun must come to an end....

And cleaning up is a must. Thanks for giving me a laugh today, Reid. And also thank you for making me clean up the computer room...a job needing done, anyway. Your help is always appreciated!

Special Visitors

There is nothing better than when family comes home to visit!!! Brian's brother, Aaron, and his girlfriend, Christina came "home" to visit last weekend. We were blessed by their visit, and we are hoping Reid did not scare away Christina from coming back again. She definitely got a good taste of what "family" is all about! It was a gorgeous October weekend, and we spent a good part of Sunday in Pappy and Grandma's boat. What a great way to spend time together.

As you see....Uncle Aaron brings out the best in us all! Here is Brian taking a moment to pose for the camera.

Here we are....enjoying our day together. I am surprised Reid was smiling so well. He hadn't had a nap and was about ready to take a crash landing at any moment!

Grandma Carol and Ellie-Bell! photogenic one!

Uncle Aaron and Christina. We were so glad to have them with us!

Titanic, anyone????

Christina, Ellie, and Uncle Aaron. Ellie would not leave their side. She cried when we had to say goodbye. It's never easy to send someone off who you love.

Uncle Aaron and my girl!

Thank you Christina and Uncle Aaron for being with us!!!! Come back real soon! We love you both!

Show Off

Here is Reid showing off to a good friend of his. This little peanut is our minister's daughter who Reid loves. I love her expression because I am quite convinced she thinks Reid is nuts! And that's ok! I think Reid is also trying to show off those baby blues of his. Love how they show up in this picture.
Hello, and welcome to my page! I am so glad you are here. I am going to try and show you the average life of a 5 year old from my perspective. Mommy and Daddy will help me along the way if I get stuck.

Let me first introduce my family to you. I am Ellie. I am a 6 year old. I live in Ohio with my Mommy, Daddy, little brother Reid, and dog, Sophie. My mommy is a teacher. She teaches nine and ten year olds and loves it. She has been teaching for twelve years. My daddy works with computers. He works hard everyday.

We all love spending time together. I have wonderful grandparents and a terrific extended family. I am a very lucky girl. Thank you for visiting my page. Write to me any time. I love getting mail!!!

Many blessing to you all.

Told ya, my hair can be wild! And you thought I was kidding!

Hmmm, Blue's Brother's perhaps?
