That afternoon when we got home from church Addie decided she was going to dig a pond. She and Preston set to work digging it up and then she wanted cement for it :-)...we got her to settle for a garbage bag to line it. She decorated it with rocks and leaves and flowers and then wanted to go catch a fish to put in it. I guess Mike actually did this very thing when he was younger so he promised they would make a real little pond later on and until then we decided to go look for a frog to put in it instead. So Monday when Ella got home we went to the golf course ponds behind our house frog hunting. We never did catch any though.

Ella's school picture day. I liked the close-ups I took later better, but here is her whole cute outfit.
When we started Addie's reward chart for Blubby she was doing great at having 1 sticker left at school so I told her that if she had 2 stickers left she would earn a sticker for reward chart AND we could get a treat or something else as well (she seemed to be doing just enough to get her reward chart sticker). It took a little while but one day she had two stickers left and immediately told me she wanted to go to Tutti Frutti. I wasn't a hard sell, I LOVE that place, but it's a bit pricey to be going to every afternoon, so we had to come up with some other options too (we did the easy bake oven one day,etc.). We squeezed in our Tutti Frutti visit right before Ella had dance. YUM! (pictures there by Mike)
