I have messed with this long enough. For today this is the best it will be.

The morning this video was taken Ella had a bucket full of energy and was super happy. I love watching her have fun and play.

So, a few weeks ago was Easter weekend and guess what . . . While we were there we found a few "wabbits" and look how cute they are.

I am so lucky to have such a cute and lovable little girl. She is our little person.

Fa'Dori can be so funny in the car. She really is a nervous Nelly but in this image she looks like she is sad to leave Grandma's house and the wide open sod field to run on. Who doesn't love a big field to run on? I know I do... Wait I don't like running - I almost forgot.

Here are two pictures for the Grandma's.

I have a nephew that was with my father tasting vinegar cucumbers. I saw some at Easter and wanted to re-enact that photo with Ella.

Our little Ella will not keep her hands inside of the blanket when we "burrito" her any more. While she falls asleep, while she sleeps and when she wakes up, she plays with the blankets near here. In this picture she got a hold of the picture that drapes over the edge of the crib and happened to walk in and lift the other edge to look in. "HI." She is so cute.

I love my brother Mitchell.

Sara wanted to say you look good with your new haircut.

Myself - I have wanted to dedicate a song to you for a while. Here you go.

This is Ella's first time eating Oatmeal.

Tonight we were giving her a bath and she had slid down to the deeper end and she got very still. Which usually means that she is done - sometimes she starts to get a bit cranky. then all of a sudden she starts splashing crazy. She actually got Sara wet. I ran out of the bathroom for the camera to record it and we were not disappointed.

Snow Pack'N Dogs

Three hours ago, this was live. Levi, the dogs (Oakley & Dori) and I went camping up Millcreek canyon. We cross-country ski'd in then snowshoe'd to get to our destination. And the lucky doodles got to sleep inside the tent with the big dogs. Loads of fun.

And here we are on our way down the mountain. When Sara saw this video she smiled so big. She said, "Ah, they look so happy. I love seeing them run side-by-side."

So, pull up a chair, put on a smile, and watch the dogs play.

It is so hard to decide which pictures to put on the blog. This one took place just before dinner. I don't really know what it is that gets into me to do strange little fun photos of Ella, but they are fun photos. I think its my mom. She does fun photos from time to time.

So, I hope you enjoy the next one too.

So, in this picture we were getting ready for church... notice the good looking guy in a great sweater from my dad. Again, I some how got a strange yet fun idea as I walked by some bags. Here I am playing messenger - however, my little helper has dropped the delivery. So, we might not get paid for this service.

    "Mom, you're embarrassing me. I know that I am cute and dorable but you are kissing it out of me."

    So, in this you can also see why Ella has gotten the nickname... SQUISHY

Somehow I think that Ella knows that she is cute.

Let's see. One more picture.

Sara, loving to kiss Ella herself, decided that everyone should share in the opportunity to share the love. So, here is Fa-Dori eagerly taking that given opportunity to give Ella a kiss. As you can see Ella is willing to give kisses right back to whom-ever is giving. Gotta love bonding.

And here we are again. Getting a little bit faster on updating our blog...because you know...our little girl is so darn cute, we can't keep her all to ourselves!
She is enjoying a nice afternoon in her bumbo chair, sporting a hawaiian print top and enjoying the company of her chew toy, Waddles. Life is pretty good for this little flower.

I told Richard today, as we were admiring her while she was sleeping, gently sucking on a binkie, "It looks like we poked a binkie into a marshmallow-her cheeks are so big they come out the sides of the binkie!"

And best of all, she tastes like chicken!

Splish Splash Ella's Tak'N a Bath

On about a ... Monday Night...
I think I could say more about this little video but actually it speaks for itself. However, I will add that bath time is not only fun for Ella, but it is so much fun for us as well to watch. We wanted to share it with everyone.

Push play and enjoy watching Ella play.

Here we are again. The beginning of a new year and the 3rd month of our daughters life. Dad decided to celebrate with some soup. But our campbell's supply was low so he made some "ELA"- bet soup. He also prepared her a few weeks ago as a yummy stew.
Mommy was infatuated with Ella's lips and decided to post a few lips of her own...

Ella was blessed on December 14th in Idaho by her father. The dress she is wearing was specially made for her in Hawaii and graciously given to her by Aunt EmilieAn. And wow, how beautiful babies look dressed in white. Here she is next to cousin Abby. What a special time to watch the Priesthood being exercised as she is held and given a name and a blessing.
