And it just gets better...

My mother and sister are coming for two weeks in March! It's been over a year since I've been home and I miss my folks and friends something awful, not to mention I'm desperate to get Ella in an English-only environment for a few weeks and show her my neck of the woods. It's going to be a real red-headed family reunion and I can't wait. I almost got Ella to flatfoot the other day -- she basically stands on one leg and stomps with the other; just humor me and go with it -- and I'm sure my sister will succeed where I did not.

Tomorrow she has been invited to her first birthday party. Tonight before bed we practiced the birthday song, which is always hilarious. She got most of the words and what she didn't know she made up for in enthusiasm, as usual. If I can only talk her into karaoke, I'll have it made.

Oh how exciting! I wish I could come with them. One day I will just have to jump on the plain with your mom and make the trip.

Hope Ella has a great time at the party. Last year we found blowing noise makers for Abby. But they only blew out and didn't make noise! They were GREAT!

Pictures: I need to make a portfolio of all my favorite pictures. Just an albulm for me. That would be so fun. I'll work on that! It will be my "Artistic Collection" - ha ha that sound so funny for a country girl!
