Ellie Goes to MeeMee and DeeDee's House

Saturday afternoon Kevin, Josh and I were really excited to go see the movie: Toy Story 3. We "grew up" with Josh watching Toy Story and Toy Story 2. I could have repeated every word in Toy Story to you when Josh was young, we watched it so many times. I don't know who was more excited about going to see it, but I suspect it was me.

Because we thought it would be really crowded, we decided not to take Ellie to this one. We also wanted to see the 3D version and knew that she would never keep on glasses to watch it, so we asked if she could stay with MeeMee and DeeDee. MeeMee didn't miss the opportunity to take a lot of pictures of her activities while she was there. Just looking at all of them made me tired, so I can only imagine how tired they were when she left. Apparently, she had a blast!!

This was my favorite picture from their "session".

One of our family friends (whose granddaughter and her husband are currently serving as missionaries in Kyrgyzstan), brought Ellie these Asian dolls. She LOVES them! I've not seen her have interest in any dolls like she has these.

She enjoyed "helping" DeeDee on the computer:

She had DeeDee try on her hat.

She rode her trike.

She got her picture made (isn't this CUTE???)

She giggled -- A LOT!

She took time to "Smell the Flowers".

Then the REAL fun started when MeeMee got out the tub and bucket and water. Tea anyone??

She wore some of Josh's training pants from YEARS ago (he would be mortified!!) and had a blast soaking her hair in the water,

and putting the bucket on her head,

and helping MeeMee water her plants.

Finally, she grew tired and got her "bankies" and sat in my rocking chair from when I was a little girl.

Apparently, they all had a blast. I'm tired just looking at the pictures! Thanks MeeMee and DeeDee for having her over while we were at the movies.

I've been catching up on blogs and what a treat to see all these cute pictures! Ellie is growing up, where'd the baby go?! She's beautiful.
