My grump

Today we had the big Mia Birthday Extravaganza -and as hostess, the pix I took were minimal at best. GRRR! I'll need to wait until Mary posts the shots she took so that I can tell all! In the meantime, Ella-Boo spent last night at Debbie and Donny's. Bless her heart, between that (not much quality sleep, but lots o' fun) and running around eating lolli-pops and birthday cake today, she's had a bazillion melt-downs.
When we say prayers before she goes to bed, I always have her ask Heavenly Father for all the rest her body needs... Why is it that she's good to go at 5:00 AM???? This girl is a total morning girl (like me) but doesn't like the party to stop at night (like Lance). Where is the balance? Someday she'll become a sleeper, but I'm sure that won't happen until the effect on me is much more minimal!

Let's all hope tonight that my little grump wakes up with a fresh and happy attitude! ...MAN, I sound like a parent!

PS- I found this picture that Mary had edited on her picassa -it's gorgeous. ...Had to share!

I didn't know you hadn't seen that edit before. I'm glad you like it. I don't know how Ella-Boo can be good to go at 5am. Benji woke up at 5 yesterday, and it was WAAAAAY to early. I'm pretty lucky that he usually wakes up about 8. I appreciate that a lot.

I LOVE this pix of Ella. She reminds me so much of Hunter, he can awake at 4 a.m. and go full boar and has always had more energy in one day than I have in one year :) I think it is because they are so extremly creative that their little brains just don't shut down like the rest of us!
