We took our 3-year-old granddaughter, Miss Ella Bella, home Thursday evening and it really has been quiet around here! I miss her as I put away the toys until the next visit! Here are some of my favorite pictures that I took while she was here.

She loved playing with our dog, Daisy. And I believe Daisy loved all the treats that she got from Miss Ella Bella! She also enjoyed playing with the neighbor's dog across the street.

We made brownies for her dad and she licked the bowl clean!

We visited Great-Gram on Pet Pals day and she got to pet all the dogs that came to visit. Here she is petting Foxy as she sat in Great-Gram's lap.

Granddaddy read her a book each night. She insisted he lie down on the floor beside her little cot and read to her and Granddaddy obliged.

We did lots of artistic activities. She loved to water color and create animals with her Play Dough.

She spent a great deal of time in the backyard "preparing meals" for Daisy and me, using pond water, tadpoles and other "tasty items." She then washed her dishes in her "dishpan."

We went to the playground fairly early one morning before it got too hot. I noticed that our car thermometer said it was 91 degrees when we got there. We did not stay too long before we headed to the store for a cool drink!

The day we took her home we went to the photo store and got prints of all the pictures we took while she was here. As we drove her home, I put them in an album for her to take with her to help tell about her adventures while she was visiting us.


  1. I have sent albums with my grandkids most times...but this time with two of them and MANY photos, I'm sending each with a computer disk of their photos.

  2. It looks like a grand time was had by all! Sending pictures, and a CD, home with them is a great idea. I'll bet you made many memories that she will cherish.

  3. Hi Mrs. F!

  4. Wow she's getting big! Looks like you all had a lot of fun. :)

  5. I want to adopt her! She's just so adorable! What fun! Wish I was there to play with you all!!

  6. Sounds like tons of fun. Love the brownie making, brings back memories of the many brownies I baked her Dad while he was away in the Coast Guard!

  7. You are an awesome grandma! She looks like she left you with precious memories.
