I don't know if I shared this funny before - so while we were in Wisconsin, we had a lot of discussions about how Grandpa Howie was in heaven, but he was also in our heart. One night Tim was putting her down and they were having the "he's in your heart" talk, and she goes "but he's so big to fit in there!" And then the next morning she was sitting on her stool, having breakfast with Grandma Rosie, and she announced that Grandpa Howie was in her heart. Grandma Rosie agreed, and put her own hand over her heart, in the center of her chest. Ellie looked at her and goes "no, my heart is over here," and put it slightly to the right (where you heart actually is, anatomically.) She is all about the details! My other favorite Ellie moment was during the first hymn at the church, where she looks at me and goes "is this a dancing party?"
Speaking of dancing parties: here you go!
And here is Adam's recent musical contribution:
And fnally, let's take a poll: do we think A Howe needs his hair trimmed?
