My Sidewalk Chalk Girls

This post was from one day last week.
I had been waiting for their parents to return from Comic-Con before showing this.

Time for lunch!!
I asked Elora why she was blowing her hands.
She said, "Because the little tacos are hot.  So I want to get my hands really cold before touching them."
Only Elora.

I thought Elora had written,  "Thank you for having us."  
It was until Den got home that night that I realized she had written, "Thank you for loving us."

What a sweet sweet post. It touches my heart to see how tender and nice Elora is with her little sister! You can tell she loves her so much!!! This post was a great day to start my day. Thank you.

What cute pictures!!! Elora sure is a great "big sister" to Cami. They are always dressed so cute!!! And their grandma really does "rock"!! They are so blessed to have you for a grandma. Thanks for sharing these pictures and Elora's thought about cooling her hands before the tacos :-))

Both previous comments express our thoughts perfectly. THIS IS A DARLING POST! Love, Dad and Susan

P.S. Your dad and I looked on a Comic-Con slide show of MANY of the costumed people there and it wasn't until after about 20 pictures that we realized there was one guy in a red shirt in the background of every single picture. SO FUNNY

Cute, cute, cute. I love the message they left for you. So sweet.
I can't stop laughing over what Elora said. I always thought you blew on the food. Silly me.

Awww, what a sweet post. They are so cute together, and I LOVE what Elora wrote to you.

My girls have those outfits! But I have a feeling you already knew that.

Girls are so sweet! And Elora is right.

Kris said...

Oh those are the sweetest pictures!!!! I miss those two sweethearts!

Mama Pea...Elora is a lot like Gigi in that she prefers dresses!

They are so cute!! I'm sad that McKay and I didn't get to see them last time we were in California.

This is an adorable post, Jill!

And I've read back on all the posts I've missed and I really enjoyed all your family celebrations, and the videos too! Thank you for sharing it all.
You were so Blessed to be able to have them all under one roof for such happy celebrations.
Everyone looks so beautiful and so happy.

I've been having so much trouble with my own blog, I can't even access it half the time. And I've published so many posts there, and it says that it published successfully but it doesn't show up! Other bloggers have contacted me through Facebook saying they see a new title under my blog name on their sidebar but when they go to my blog it just shows an old post.
I'm so busy lately with Jayden home, and out-of-town visitors here, so I don't have the time to fiddle with it.
I haven't been feeling well lately either, and I've had lots of dentist appointments for gum surgery, and I have a doctor's appointment on September 3.
Hopefully once all this is behind me I'll get my blogged fixed and I'll be back to blogging and visiting more regularly.

So nice to see you enjoying such happy family times. I've missed coming here.
God Bless you all!
All the best to you, Jill,
Eileen

I've been worried about you Eileen so I'm glad you commented today. I also saw your blog post that I cannot open up. I've missed knowing what is happening in your life, but I am so sad to know you are still not feeling well. That must be horribly frustrating.

Only at your house would those pics & granddaughters delight us!

Some of my favorite pics of Elora and Cami, without a doubt. Thanks for taking these, Mom. Very, very sweet.
