Say Goodbye

We're saying goodbye to summer and hoping that it is saying goodbye to us, too! The hundred+ degree weather should leave about the same time as the kids and I take off for Florida... and it's forecast to be in the 80's! when we return.


That means goodbye to some of Eliana's sweet dresses, too. She's beginning to grow! She's put on 2 pounds in about 6 months-- which is awesome because the 12 months before that she put on no weight at all. She's my tiny, petite thing, but at 3 and a half she's finally going to have to say goodbye to all her 24 month and 2T clothes! It's a bitter sweet thing. I love so many of her outfits... and there's no girl following her in the line-up. Unless... she keeps on praying the way she does. This girl is also a determined prayer warrior about a particular subject. She's praying hard for a baby girl. Ha! We'll see about that!


This spunky girl loves to choose her own clothes. Today she insisted on wearing this dress by Penelope Mack.


Then, paired it with her Keens she received from her cousin, Evie. She wears her Keens all the time right now. She loves them! She loves purple.


She wants to paint Jesse's Jeep purple. And the play house. (I don't think either of those are going to happen.) And now that the Jeep is up and running and the weather is cooler, it's back to work on the play house!

We fully expect it to be complete when we return from Florida, Jesse. Chop, Chop. Just kidding!!! (Sorta.)

Linking up with these ladies today- go check them out!

Thanks, everyone, we think she's beautiful, too. But perhaps we'e biased?

Nev, unfortunately, her hair is not red and it's just tinting from the phone ap I was using. (I have a serious love of red hair and keep hoping that one day we'll have a red head in the family, but so far, no such luck.) The last photo probably gives the truest example of her real color.
