Both of our girls love to dress-up.  This leopard number is the current costume of choice.  I crack-up everytime I see Elle in it.  Gwen was wearing a Tigger costume at the time but wouldn't slow down enough for me to take her picture.  They were both prring like cats and crawling around the kitchen.  I love how imaginative they are and I love that they can entertain themselves and me in the process.  

Our Time

Saturday afternoons are special.  While Jon stays home with napping Gwen, Elle and I head out.  It is our time...just the two of us.  I had some Christmas returns to make at the mall and Elle came with me.  She got herself dressed all in pink.  She was loving her purse and as we were strolling through the mall she pulled me down to her level and said, "mama, I think everyone thinks I am a mommy".  In other words, she felt really grown-up.  While I was sitting and waiting for the salesman to bring me my shoes, I looked and Elle had taken her boots off and was prancing around with the display shoes.  She looked so cute and oh so grown-up.
