I haven't written for awhile and I'm not even going to apologize or try to explain why...it's just too boring. I think it will be better to just jump back in and share this photo of Ellie.
The week before Christmas I needed to be at work for a couple of days (because my dad is a slave driver) but the kids were out of school so I brought Ellie to the office with me (because he's a nice slave driver).
She was so excited to work! My mom gave her a state farm piggy bank and then we set her to shredding. She shredded steadily for almost two hours earning a whopping two dollars plus the change in my dad's pockets. She also spent some time with the extremely fascinating typewriter composing an insightful story about an annoying boy and his super smart sister.
I think that's all I have time for right now. Christmas pictures and tales will possibly follow.
Happy New Year!
