Special Delivery

EDIT: Ella Grace wanted to say something to Megan, Lauren, and Meagan. No surprise, she is wearing a hat! It's the hat she received at the hospital when she was born. It's one of her new favorites! :)

Saturday afternoon the doorbell rang. Derek went to the door and there was a package addressed to Ella Grace. How exciting and how special! EG's very first package!

Ella Grace helped me open it. She was so excited (so was I)!


There was a sweet card from Megan, Meagan, and Lauren, my best Tennessee friends! I'm REALLY excited now!


EG watched intently as I unwrapped her surprise.



And there it was. Her very own picture of our girls in Tennessee paying tribute to EG's fashion sense inspired by this picture I posted of my "anything can be a hat including shorts" wearing EG...



Girls after her own heart...

A closeup! I don't know that I have laughed quite so hard in a long time. I love how Megan is peeking around a door, Lauren appears to be doing the "robot," and Meagan is blowing kisses all in their "hats" (shorts on their heads)! It was the cutest thing!

Megan told me they laughed a lot while getting this surprise together. I laughed and laughed myself, and EG was so proud pointing to each of their beautiful faces, saying, "hats." She also blew kisses back to them. She carried it around all afternoon. I have the perfect place in her room for it already so she (and I...hee hee) can look at it all the time. She loved it, and so did I (maybe even more)! Thank you, Megan, Lauren and Meagan for making me smile and LAUGH today and for sending EG something she would enjoy SO MUCH! It absolutely made my/our weekend!

I wanted you girls to be able to see EG's (and my) expressions as we opened Ella's surprise. We both LOVED it! Here are the pictures...


This was the highlight of our weekend, M, M & L! Thank you for loving on my children (and me) so much! You guys are the best!

MWAH!

WE LOVE YOU!! I'm SO glad you and EG liked it! Seriously, all three of us almost peed our pants while we were taking the pictures. We were all crammed in a large handicapped dressing room, trying to get the perfect poses. We made a beeline for the potty after we were done!! (TMI? Maybe.) I love EG's stance while she's waiting on you to open the box. Priceless!

After the 7th time of watching the video, I had to make myself stop cause I was crying too much!!! She is so, so precious. I just love her little voice. We WILL come to Arkansas.
