Just us girls...

Emily asked if Elise could spend the night with me Easter Eve and go to church with me Easter Sunday. It didn't even take a millisecond to say yes.
We had a nice girly time that evening with Elise having a nice bath with soap shaped like rose buds and some bubbles. Then of course make-up time with fingernail polish and a little face cream.
Sunday morning started off with a early start so by 9 o'clock she had had breakfast, blew bubbles, painted, watched a video, washed dishes, and made two strawberry pies. Elise mashed strawberries, poured in the sugar and corn startch and stirred it all. She also arranged the whole berries in the bottom of one of the pie crusts. She did it like she knew just what she was doing, which of course she did. She definately has a I CAN DO attitude about everything whether it is smashing berries or racing in a sack race against seven older boys.
Elise kept asking me when is Easter going to be here? On the way home from church she asked, "When are we going to have Easter?"
Speaking of church, Right after we arrived back at Elise's home, her mom, Emily, hesitantly asked, "How was she in church?"
She was just perfect. She almost ran up to the front when time came for the children to come to the front of the sanctuary to gather for Children's church. She spoke right up when asked what was in your Easter basket. Her answer, "Chocolate and money." (they were in her basket from the previous' day egg hunt.) She danced to the music and captivated all who were seated around us. (proud grama)

I'm so glad you're teaching her to make the s-pies, since I can't make one to save my life!
