My Little Princess

It is beyond me how it is that my child has become such a girly-girl. Ok, so maybe I am girlier than I think, but Ella has beat my girliness 100 fold. Of course she does the girly things that I do, like wanting to do her hair, to look pretty, and wear cute clothes, but she also likes to carry a purse and wear lots of jewelery!! It is so cute how she puts on her "princess" dresses and dances and twirls around the house.

Lately she has become fond of the music from the movie "Enchanted." Ok, so not all the music...not even the majority of the music...just the two songs that sound the most like classic princess songs. She sways back and forth while they play, and just this week she has started singing along. It is so cute!! Somehow I am going to have to put a hidden camera in the back of my car to capture the action, cause she is to shy to do it front of people.

Warning to all father's with little girls... no matter how you try to avoid it, someday your little girl will become a princess. (this will only tighten the knot that they already have tied around your finger)

Fun in the snow

Today we went sledding on the dirt bike hill behind my sister Lisa's house. It was a lot of fun, even though the temperature was barely above zero!! This is Lisa and her little boy Carson. I would have a picture of Ella except she just wanted to play in the snow, not sled down it.

Here is all of the Cook boys going down the hill together!

A Clip fom the past: I can be crazy!

I didn't have any new news today, but I was lookin through some old pictures and I found this video of us sledding. It was a lot of fun, but it was hard for us to get to the top of the garage... Yes, I did say that garage!! Hope you enjoy!
