This and That!!

Yesterday, Ella got her hair cut and went with her momma for her very first mani/pedi, which really only consisted of painting her fingers and toes, but momma got the full treatment and since someone other than MOM or NANNY did Ella’s, she thinks she got the full treatment too : )  That’s the beauty of spending time with kids, it doesn’t take much to put a big smile on their faces and to let them know they are special!!

She really likes how it feels when she slings it around!!

Sparkly finger

Flowery toes

On a different note, and something that makes ME smile!!

I am so excited!!  So many of you have asked me to turn my - Why I “Count it all Joy” Wednesday - into a meme so you can join in, so I have been playing with the idea some and trying to decide when and how I would do it.  Early yesterday, I started looking into making a button (which I have never done), just in case I decided to do it.  The funny thing is during the process of working on it, I was asked again to turn it into a meme, so I am going to.  YIPPEE, I hope you all join!!  I am going to try to kick it off next Wednesday, if I can get it all figured out, so start thinking about and remembering all the wonderful things that fill you with JOY!!  
As most of you know, I blogged about a couple of the many talents of my husband several weeks ago click here and one of those is he is a designer which came in real handy last night when I WASN’T figuring out the button on my own.  He jumped right in, as usual, and saved me.  I am saving the button until I start this, but I am so excited, he did a fabulous job.  It is just what I wanted.  YAY DAN, you are still my hero and you gave me something else to be filled with JOY about!!!
What’s making you smile today?
Counting it all Joy!!
