Conversations with Ella

The other day I was making hamburgers and Ella was "helping" me. I told her a number of times, don't put your hands in the raw meat. I turned around to do something and when I looked back, of course she had her hands in the raw meat...

Me: Ella, I told you not to do that. Why did you do that?
Ella: The serpent made me do it.
Me: WHAT???

Ella: The evil serpent made me do it.

Oh great. She's already blaming the devil.

(the day before she was making Matt play "sunday school" with her and he was telling her the creation story....)

A few nights ago as we were saying prayers....

Ella: Hey God....(pause)....I love you.

What you can't hear was the sound of my heart melting.

She pushes me to the edge of my sanity pretty much every day but she is so full of love - it was wonderful to hear that expressed towards God rather than Diego or ice cream or pancakes! Here's a picture of her giving some love to her little sister. Not sure how well it is being received.... :)

hilarious. i was at a friend's house for dinner last night and their four year old son blessed the meal, including all items on the table, but he forgot one so we all had to grab hands again and he blessed the steak. it was marvelous.

i know that evil serpent. tell her to stay away from it if possible. he has a forked tongue and says things that aren't quite true.

she's adorable.
