WHAT WE'VE BEEN UP TO

Things have been a little crazy at the Lacey household the past couple of weeks.  Promise to fill you in this week.  But in the meantime here are some of life's little events that have kept us going day to day.  
(mostly featuring Elle of course)

 Oh my goodness are we obsessed with kitty cats.  (Also know as meow meows in these parts.) So I had to get her this movie.  She was so excited and held on to it the entire shopping trip.
 Enjoying the kitties.  She doesn't sit down and watch an entire movie.  Instead she just wanders in and out and gets excited every time she sees another "meow meow."
 I ordered a new little dress for Elle to wear to a football game.  One of my sorority sisters, Whitney Hull made it and I am so happy with it.  I cannot wait for Elle to wear it! Let me know if you want one and I can put her in touch with you.
 Obviously we take SEC football VERY seriously in this house.  So when UT and Florida are playing at the same time as Mississippi State then what are we to do?  Well we just stream one of the game on our computer and watch both.  Elle loves cheering on the Bulldogs with us.
 Getting ready to go to "school" PDO one morning.  At this point it is time to say goodbye to most of the spring clothes.  I get sad after every season because I have to put all her little clothes away.  
Another trip to the zoo.  We love the Memphis Zoo so much and as Elle gets older it is even more fun. Here we are looking at the sheep (baa baas)
 Trying to hold it together one morning before we went into school.  These teary eyes were killing me.  She has separation anxiety when I first drop her off.  She gets sad when we pull into the parking lot.  Screams when we get into the classroom and I quickly leave.  Her teachers say she is fine five minutes later and the rest of the day.  Sigh.
Elle brought home a cold to share with everyone the last few days.  The first night she comes down with something she always cries and fusses all night.  This was that night.  I've learned that she just wants to be cuddled.  It makes me sad but I love it all at the same time.
Friday night, Kenny and I had a fabulous date night.  We went to a nice dinner and then went to see Billy Elliott at the Orpheum. We saw the play when we were in Chicago and loved it.  We were excited to see it again .  It was very good and it was a great night.

My mom was in town this past weekend and Kenny spent some daddy daughter time with Elle while  my mom, my sister and I all went shopping and to get pedicures.  Saturday night we went to Ciao Bella for dinner to celebrate my birthday a month late.  I had my favorite meal and then we decided to stop by Muddy's on the way home. Elle couldn't make up her mind.
