She Cracks Us Up!

I've decided that I don't share stories about Ellie even close to often enough on here. While she may be challenging at times, I don't share enough about how much life and entertainment she brings into our home. She is such a character and she keeps Caleb and I laughing all of the time! She brings us so much joy, I can't remember what life was like before her!

I thought I'd share some of her latest funny stories.

Ellie's really into hair bows right now. The other day she asked me to put as many as I could in her hair. You can't really tell from this picture, but she had several bows in her hair.

She likes to run around our house screaming when she's really in a crazy mood. I mean literally screaming. What can I say? She's just plain crazy.

Lately when Ellie is really excited about something she'll bring it to me and say "Mommy, I have a surprise for you!" Even though the "surprise" is really for her. :)

Ellie is quite enthralled with her new baby brother. She likes to talk like an adult and she says over and over "Look at him! He's so small, he's so tiny!"

There are many more stories that I could share, but it's late and I'm tired and honestly they aren't coming to me at the moment.

But I have to share this story. I couldn't make it up if I tried and I am NOT embellishing any of it. Last night we were all in the living room and my phone rang. I missed the call but Ellie picked up my phone and pretended to have a conversation with someone on the other line. It was a very grown up conversation and SO funny!

This is how the conversation went: "Hello? (pause) Yeah, I'm playing a game with Daddy. (pause) Yeah, (pause) Mmhmm (pause). Okay, well have a good trip. See you later. Bye bye."

Seriously! Where does she get these things? I love her more than words can say.

I love the phone story! That is seriously so cute! It's moments like that when I realize how much kids really do listen and observe everything around them.

I read that last part out loud to Jeremy and we both started cracking up! She is too funny!
Now if she would just let you guys get some sleep at nights...

About Me

My Photo
I am a daughter of the King. Saved by grace. Follower of Christ. I love my God and I believe that he is faithful and true to his word! I'm still figuring out and trying to follow his plan for my life. I am a wife to my best friend Caleb, a mother to my miracle babies (they are my greatest joy and challenge), a sister and best friend to 3 passionate women, and a daughter to 2 amazing parents that continue to teach me what it is to be real and faithful to God and his word. I am lucky to get to be a stay at home Mom (thanks to God's provision). I love music, singing, coffee, cooking, baking, traveling, our beautiful state of Colorado, and mostly being with the family and friends that I love!

Husband, Caleb
Caleb is an amazing husband and father. He is always so good to me. He is my best friend. He is the romantic one. We love to laugh and spend time together. We've been married for 7 years and I just love that I get to spend the rest of my life with him.

Our 1st Miracle

Our 1st Miracle
Elliana Faith... God blessed us with our first miracle little girl in December 2008. She is sweet, smart, spunky, funny, strong willed, precocious, extremely outgoing, vocal and so full of life! She brings us so much joy.

Our 2nd Miracle

Our 2nd Miracle
Ethan James,.. God blessed us with our little boy in March 2011. Ethan was a bit of a surprise and an even bigger miraclle. Ethan is ALL BOY! He is very active, into sports and running around. He is also sweet, introverted, affectionate, and laid back. These days he often has us laughing, he's starting to show a little bit of "clown" in him. He makes our hearts happy too. :)

Our 3rd Miracle

Our 3rd Miracle
Emsley Jeannette... Our surprise baby girl was born on June 11th, 2013 and came into the world 4 weeks early. Her first 2 weeks of life were spent in the NICU, but due to God's hands and the prayers of many people, she grew quickly and came home to join our family! She is an easy, sweet baby and we are enjoying getting to know her personality.


We fight one day and then the next day we're fine. We're always loud and crazy when we get together. We're very passionate. We've been through it all together, lots of ups and downs. We're eachother's biggest supporters.
