OK. Crazy girl! She went from totally mellow to bouncin' off the walls (well the bed really). And I promise, there had been no sugar, or chocolate, or nap. Can't have Emmy Lou crackin' out at 11pm. :) She's super excited to see her little bro'. Enjoy her message. Only 42 and 1/2 hours 'til touchdown. Can't wait to see you guys. Hope all goes well at the embassy for your friends today. Praying. LY! xoxoxo!

Happy St. Patrick's Day from Emmy

John called it Green Patrick's Day and Emmy called it Patrick's Day. Corned beef and cabbage tonight. Mmmmm. Baked rainbow cupcakes with Ella's class today. Saved a few for our fam. Emmy and John couldn't wait. Hot day...88 degrees in LBC. Tanks, shorts, flip flops, and withering winter veggies. Hohum. I'll take the beautiful weather. All is well. Praying for Eyob, Becca, and Charlie. God, please bring them home as scheduled!

Let's Dance

Dave took Ella to a father-daughter dance. The pictures speak for themselves. I must say, she was delighted, he was smitten, and I forever adore my husband for loving my Little Love the way he does.

Did I mention...

i LOVE lucy!

Lucy to Zombie Robot

Yes, she went from Lucille Ball to looking like a zombie-robot and dancing like a robot to Axel F. A great talent show and appearance number 4 for little miss dancer.

i LOVE lucy.

What a blast! Tues. we scavenged thrift shops for the perfect outfit, jewels, and shoes. Last night we carefully rolled each strand of hair in curlers. This morning we unrolled, recurled, pinned, combed, sprayed, and giggled our way to a beautiful, 8 yr. old Lucille Ball. Here's what Lucy has to say about herself.
