Mother's Day

As Elliot and I (Daddy) were looking at our planners a couple of months ago, we both had Sunday, May 10th circled as a day that we wanted to make extra special for Mommy.  So we hatched a big plan to make it the best day ever.  We went to church Saturday night so that we could let Mommy sleep in on Sunday morning.  Daddy got up with Elliot and Mommy slept...  And slept, and then slept some more.  I think it was around 10:30 - 11 that she finally found her way out of the bed room.  We got around and headed to Southlake Town Square and Sunshine Glaze.  Elliot and I decided that we needed to let Mommy tap into her inner artist and have some fun painting pottery.
Here is Mommy painting!
Elliot and Daddy watching...
After we were done painting, we headed to the center of the Town Square and to the fountain.  Elliot loved the fountain!  She loves her bath and loves water and she had a blast.  We even let her put her hand in one of the fountains.  She was soaked, but she loved it!

Happy Mother's Day Mommy!

After the fountain, we hit up a few stores, including Janie and Jack ($$$).  Mommy loves this store, Daddy, not so much...  We found some cute birthday outfits, so now she will be stylin' for her first birthday.  
Who is that movie star?
After we got back from shopping, we gave Mommy her present...  It was a Shark Steam Mop!  Now, if you think that Jennie was sad to get a mop on Mother's Day, then you don't know Jennie, she spent Sunday night playing with her new mop and mopping the kitchen!  It was a special day for Jennie and Elliot and I were glad that we got to share it with her!  We love you Mommy!

Now, here are some random fun pictures...

Big Girl

Elliot is getting really big and really mobile.  Here is a video to show just how big she has gotten.  She has an extensive bag of tricks that we tried to get her to show you, but she wasn't really interested.  She can't know that she is being recorded, if she does, she just hams it up.  So enjoy the video, more pictures (and possibly another video coming tomorrow).
