Conversations with Elliana

Before I dive into the hilarious things that our 3 year old Ellie has been saying lately, I need to touch on a few things.

First of all, I have to note that I am just as excited (maybe more) as my sisters are about how our family photos turned out! I just assume that anyone that follows my blog follows their blogs too. If you haven't seen the rest of the photos all over the Internet, then let me lead you here and here. Thanks again to the very talented Becky Young.

Second of all, I had the most wonderful time with my sister Courtney and my mom this past Sunday. Mom and I were gifted with tickets to Wicked at Christmas! We had been counting down to Sunday ever since Christmas. I didn't know anything about Wicked going into Sunday and I'm so glad I didn't. I enjoyed it SO much, words can not describe. I sometimes like to dream that I would've had a career on Broadway (I wish). I forgot my camera, but Courtney took lots of great photos and put together a wonderful post about our day on Sunday. If you get a chance, you might want to check out her photos.

Now, I'll try to get back on topic. I've blogged before about how hilarious our Elliana is. She simply keeps us laughing all of the time. If I was better at documenting her every funny phrase or conversation, this blog would be flooded with Ellie stories. At the end of the day my husband and I like to swap stories of the things Ellie said when one of us wasn't present. I thought it was only fair to share a few of those stories with all of you. :)

A few weeks ago we were driving home (I can't remember where from) and Caleb pointed out to Ellie that a lot of progress had been made on the big construction project near our home. Ellie responded with "Wow. That is hu-, hu-, HU-MAZING!"

During that same drive, Caleb pointed out something on the side of  the road (I can't remember what it was). Ellie exclaimed "Oh, Wow!" Caleb asked "Did you see it Ellie?" Her response "Nooooo."

Anytime we try to warn Ellie of any danger, like running into the road, or getting burned, or hurt in any way, she always asks "Could I die?" Depending on the danger we're currently warning about, we sometimes answer "Yes Ellie, you could die." She then claps her hands, jumps up and down and says "Yay! I'll go to heaven! I LOVE heaven!" I ask you, what do you do when your child has no fear of death?

Anytime we tell her about something fun we're about to do, she exclaims "Oh boy! That's my favorite holiday!" 

Whenever Elliana tells me something, and I hesitate to answer, or I look puzzled she says "Mommy! Im not kidding! I'm serious!"

The other day I was brushing Ellie's hair. She yawned and sighed "I'm so tired." I asked "Why are you tired Ellie?" She responded with "I didn't sleep very well (yes, she said very well) last night. Ethan kept me awake with his crying all night long. I just couldn't sleep." Ha ha. I wonder where she's heard that before?. ;)

Today Ellie asked me "Mom, why does my cousin Reagan think kissing is yucky?" I answered "I don't know Ellie. Do you think kissing is yucky?" Her answer "No, I think I like it!" Oh dear.

This isn't funny, but one of my favorite moments with Elliana is when she tells me "Mommy, you look (or smell) pretty." She usually tells me that when I least expect it and it melts my heart. My absolute favorite moment with Ellie is at the end of every day when we're putting her to bed and she says "Mommy, will you lay next to me, cuddle me, and tell me a story?" How could anyone say no to that?

And just for fun, I thought I'd throw in a few of my favorite photos of our Ellie from our photo session.  These photos capture her perfectly!

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!

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.
