Mommy's Little Helper

I have always loved being in the kitchen. Apparently Ellie has picked up on that! Anytime she thinks something needs to be stirred she trying. During the prep of every meal she is right by my side sitting on the counter "helping" mama. Her new favorite thing is to pull out all my pots and pans and make "yummies". She always brings me the pot and wants me to blow on it because it is too hot. It has been so fun watching her grow to love cooking as much as I do.

Animal Farm

We have a fun little farm by our house and going to feed the animals is one of our new favorite things to do. I took an entire bag of hamburger buns because I knew that Ellie would love it, what I didn't know was that her dad would love it even more than her. It ended up that Ellie got 1/2 a bun and Tay got the other 7 and 1/2. It is such a fun little place they have pigs, goats, ducks, emus, lamas, little kangaroos, and little deer. It is so fun to see all these animals and it was even more fun to watch Taylor feed them!

Ellie's Favorite Eats

Saturday night Taylor, Ellie and I went to one of our favorite places to eat. Little Italy... Melisa and Chris introduced it to us a few months back and now it has turned into a usual for us. They have the best dessert! If you go you have to try a piece of their Volcano Cake. I know, the dinner is good too, but if you know me I pick my favorite places by their dessert. And this is the best!

6 Month Update...

Well since I haven't updated my blog for six months I decided that it was time. I'll just do a quick rundown of the last couple months. Taylor and I bought a town home in Springville in December and we are loving it! It is so fun to have a place that we can call ours. We bought a dog, Penny. We got her when she was just a puppy but now she is almost full grown. She is so cute and VERY playful. Ellie just loves her to death. Ellie is such a big girl now. She is talking up a storm. It has been so fun to watch her grow up. She loves her daddy so much that she copies everything he does. She walks around all day saying "daddy buh-bye". I think her dad likes her a little bit too. I can't keep them apart when he gets home from work. They are so cute together. Its one of those things that just melts a moms heart.

We are all looking forward to the summer so we can swim and take a few trips to the zoo. We already took one trip there and she loved it so much. I think her favorite animals were the elephants and the giraffes.

Ok well now that I have filled you all in I am really going to try and keep this updated. We'll see.... Just want to tell all my cute neices and nephews good luck in their last little bit of school. We are going to have to play a ton this summer!!! Love you all!

Ride em' Cowgirl!

Last week Ellie and I went up to Kaysville to visit my family. When we when got there they had Lauren's horse, Sarabi, out for a ride. Lauren, my sister, took Ellie on her first horse ride without Mom. She loved it! She giggled the whole way around the arena and kept turning around to smile at her aunt Lauren. It was so cute and so fun to watch her!
I have since become Ellie's horse. I have been afraid a few times that Muriel and Lewis, my sister and brother-in-law who live right across the parking lot from us, would comment on my new gallop and horse noises. They haven't mentioned anything yet, though I'm sure they have seen me through our front windows , so either they are too embarrassed that they say me to mention it or they know that I would be embarrassed if they did mention it. Either way it makes Ellie laugh so no harm done.
