Both Ella and Addie had their school pictures this week. It is so weird how they do the school pictures at the elementary school though. She had just her individual picture this time (I think it is the one that will go in the yearbook) and then they do another picture day later for the class picture. Doesn't it seem like it would be easier to just get it all done in one shot? Anyway, we already got the proofs back from Addie's pictures, so I scanned those in too. I'm so glad I don't rely on these for our pictures of the kids, what a bummer that would be (although Ella did have that cool rainbow lighted background last year :-).
This week was also Donuts with Dad at Ella's school, which became "Donuts with Nana" for us. Mike unfortunately misses out on these events since he is teaching at his own school and this year Grandad was on a business trip and Greatfrog was working at the temple, so it was Nana to the rescue. (can you believe next week is Addie's Donuts with Dad at preschool and it is on the same day of the week, leaving us in the same predicament?!) Ella had lots of fun with Nana though. Here they are before leaving our house at 7:20am -Yikes that was early! (and Ella really was excited, promise!)
On Thursday after getting the girls off to school my mom, Preston and I headed down town to visit with Kayley. Mom treated us to a yummy lunch and we had fun talking (and keeping track of Preston). Preston kindly tested out the apple and banana in Kayley's fruit bowl. They both had teeny little bite marks on them...yep, he bit right through the banana peel and all. Apparently he quickly realized why I usually peel those for him first because there was a little blog of chewed mush on the counter next to the banana.
I have been such a slacker about taking pictures, but I wanted to record that last week the girls both went on dates with Mike. Ella finally got to go on her roller skating date and Addie had earned enough magnets and chose to go to Cici's, which meant a date with Dad as well (since Cici's is more his kind of place than mine :-). They sure love having that special time with their dad! I need to be sure to get pictures before they head out next time.
