It was all yellow

Last night Ellie told me that there was something wrong with her "froat": Because mom, when I talk it sounds like a stranger.

She has now, just two days ago, learned to swim underwater, and she is a regular fish. This makes me happy and sad at the same time. Before you know it she'll be wanting her two front teeth for Christmas and driving. I wish I could could keep her this age forever where she she still thinks the sun rises and sets by my command.

Today she made me a "yellow" snack--a plate with a cut up banana, and oatmeal cookie and a diced Yukon gold potato (raw). I ate the whole thing and it was the best yellow I've ever had. I did stop her before she tried slicing up jalapenos for my "green" snack.

You need to write a children's book series about Ellie and her antics. Would probably be as popular as Junie B.!

This made my insides oozey. I love little ones.

Oh, what a darling dear! I agree with Tebbs above - and I want an autographed copy of **Ellie Says**

I wonder what she would come up with for a red day. Oh the endless stories you could have
