~Turning Eight~

 
 My sweet granddaughter, Ella, turned eight yesterday. She's in the third grade. Her daddy commented last nite on FB that he couldn't believe it. And that he felt SO old. My comment back to him: "You think YOU feel old? I remember just yesterday that YOU were eight!".

She lives in the world of princesses. Of soccer games. Of best friends. She loves her siblings...although sometimes it may be hard to believe. She loves  swimming...the ocean....her parents. She loves art, and sleepovers, and soccer. When  asked what she wanted this year for her birthday, she said she is saving money for an ipod touch. sigh. I'm hoping she won't outgrow the princesses and Barbie dolls anytime soon.

And so, we celebrate sweet Ella. All girly-girl, all sweet and innocent. My dear dear Ella....may you stay this way for a very long time~

I love you.

Ella is so beautiful!!! Oh, how I understand about the 'feeling older' part..... Our children and grandchildren grow up way too fast!
Hugs,

Oh my gosh, Carol! Has it been that long since I "met" you? I remember when you were posting toddler-Ella pictures on your blog. Time is flying at warp speed. Don't blink! She'll be in high school next! Well... maybe not quite that quickly. An iPod, huh?

She is a lovely little girl.
My youngest granddaughter who is one year younger than Ella says its not cool to love pink and princesses...... Who said so? Her older siblings of course. That is such a pity!
