it's a party.

Ellie has requested to have a hot dog birthday party.
The kid doesn't even eat hot dogs so I'm not sure where this came from.
It was initially a pink party and then she changed it to a hot dog party.
So, I'm thinking pink hot dog party - right?

Anyway, other than cooking hotdogs, does anyone have any ideas as to what can be done here?

And, if you happen to be in Las Vegas the end of July, feel free to come!

home improvements

We are moving soon and therefore have been somewhat renovating the house we are moving too. I have some good tips on home improvements and some DIY projects but I need pictures to show you and just haven't taken those yet, so that will have to be a later post.



However, I was thinking I wanted to do something like one of these...

in the aeroplane over the sea
The top picture retails for about $400 which I am unwilling to pay and the second was a DIY project.
If I did the first one, I was thinking of the lyrics

"Whenever I see your smiling face, I have to smile myself because I love you" - Could be because we are listening to alot of James Taylor and Jimmy Buffett lately
or for the second picture which is a whole song, I was thinking of "The Way I Am" by Ingrid Michaelson with the lyrics as follows...

If you were falling, then I would catch you
You need a light, I'd find a match

Cuz I love the way you say good morning
And you take me the way I am

If you are chilly, here take my sweater
Your head is aching; I'll make it better

Cuz I love the way you call me baby
And you take me the way I am

I'd buy you Rogaine when you start losing all your hair
Sew on patches to all you tear

Cuz I love you more than I could ever promise
And you take me the way I am
You take me the way I am
You take me the way I am

So, my question to all you blog readers - good idea? and if so, any other ideas for songs - I am completely open to more possibilities!

ellieisms part deux

1. Ellie told me that I can't have her baby brother yet because I didn't have a hole to get him out.  She told me that we had to find a hole but that we could do that later.

Need less to say, I left it at that.

2. Jessica is buying a new house, we were over there looking at the construction and met one of her neighbors who we found out had cats. My mom asked Ellie what kid of animals she had, thinking she would say dogs. Instead Ellie said, I-ya (my mom) has rabbits up the ying yang. 

3. She knows the words to Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville and we are now working on Fins. She also knows the words to James Taylor Mexico. Seriously, these are proud mom moments!
Ellie will even request to hear them in the car.
