The adventures of one former missionary couple journeying along on their life after staff. For all of our family, friends and supporters, we hope this will help you stay connected. Additionally for all our staff friends, it's a rare glimpse into life on the other side :)

I may have been a wee bit late to Mom's group this morning, but there were a few things that positively warranted that I stop and document this occasion:
#1) Ella asked to wear a skirt (I think this is because mom's group is held at church and we always dress her up on Sunday's).
#2) Ella asked me to put pig tails in her hair, "I want pig tails!" She exclaimed. And then she actually left them in for aprox. 10 minutes!
#3) When I asked if I could take her picture she said, "yes" then proceeded to stand relatively still and not cry. She actually said cheese and cracked a smile in a few of them!
#4) She said, "Mommy come stand here." pointing next to her. Then said, "Mommy take picture mommy ella." Then gave me kisses whilst I snapped away at arms length!
I mean seriously. Does a momma's morning get any better than that!?
So I popped out my camera and took as many pictures as I could in the 5 seconds I already didn't have to spare! Oh hour precious!
P.S. She also asked to wear the sun glasses you see in a few shots! Oh Lord help me if I have a budding fashionista!
