Thursday was a very fun day for me and Ella. We had two different playgroup times. The first was that morning with Jackson, Ava and Tobey.

Our church has this great playroom for the babies. It is full of climbing toys, slides and play houses. It's awesome. Here are some fabulous pictures.

The Girls! Ava and Ella!

Jackson so cute on the slide.

Jackson and Ella playing with the cars.

Our church's Bye Bye Buggy is one of the cutest things I have ever seen!!

In action!

I'm telling y'all, Ella is going to be a track star.

Ella loves to play chase with Jackson!

Thursday night, Ella and I went over to Melissa and Joshua's apartment for a pumpkin decorating party their apartments were having.

One word, obsessed!

Static? Maybe just a little.

Ella had SO much fun painting her pumpkin her two favorite colors, pink and purple.

A work of art!

Please take a mental note of this shirt. It's my favorite of all she has and it now sadly has paint splattered on it and will no longer be able to be worn. It's from Target, so if anyone sees this shirt (size 18 mths) please buy it and I will pay you back. I have learned my lesson. Motherhood is a constant reminder to me that I don't know everything, or really much of anything. :-)

Me & Ella, Joshua & Melissa, Laney & Kristin!!

The finished products. We even made a Go Cowboys pumpkin for Heath!

That is why I was so awed by you as you let Ella go to town with that paint!!! It was worth it...she had so much fun and you were the best mom ever!!!!

I will check our target the next time I am in there, which will be soon.

All the pictures are so cute, but I adore the one with her walking with her balloon. Love the bracelet!

I LOVE the pictures! Especially with all of the kids strapped into the little car. So cute. And the static picture with the balloon is cute too!

I'm glad to hear all is well!

Don't you just love the bye-bye buggy! I work at a preschool (with the 18-24 month olds), and my kids there LOVE it. It saves everyone a lot of tears on some days.
