Ben working; Ella playing

On the 5 acres that we live on, we have one tree. Yes - only one. So my wonderful in-laws were kind enough to buy us 70 trees to plant on our land. Yes - 70! Whenever there is work to be done outside, we can always count on Ben to be our #1 helper. So I got him dressed in his "working" clothes to help his Dad and Papa plant trees.

While taking these pictures, I kept laughing to myself at the funny outfit I dressed him in to work outside. Then I noticed what Matt was wearing. Like father, like son....

Ella has just recently become more interested in our dogs, Godiva (aka Ivy) and Chase. She really seems to be facinated by their collars. Thankfully, they don't seem to mind her hanging all over them (especially Chase -- he is such a sweet boy)

I can totally picture her wanting to have Ivy and Chase join her for tea parties when she is older!

Ella is still working on her crawling. She reminds me of a seal on the beach. But she is moving forward, and I guess that is all that matters.

Almost forgot to mention, Ella started saying "Mama" this weekend!!!

I owe a huge THANK YOU to my friend Stephanie Ford, the Blogging Queen, for helping me load my pictures so they aren't all turned sideways! Steph has an amazing blog. Click here to check it out!

Kiki (and Matt)-
It's wonderful to see how much Ben and Ella have grown! I'm so glad you shared the pictures and the stories. I'm glad you are starting to feel better and the spring weather is here to help you with the planting of your 70 trees! Hope to see you soon!
Ann-Morgan and Justin
