Elsie loves Tiana!

There is no doubt that Elsie is a Disney fan. She saw "Princess and the Frog" three times in the theatre (Aaron took her on a couple "dates"). So when she saw the DVD at Costco the other day, we had a hard time telling her she had to wait because the Easter Bunny was going to give it to her (what else does the Easter Bunny give to a child that doesn't like chocolate or most candy?!). The great thing about Elsie is that she was totally okay with that answer and didn't get upset. But when we talked to Aaron's parents the next day and told them about it, they just couldn't handle making her wait that long. The DVD came in the mail today, and Elsie was already on her second showing when it was time for bed. She loves it!

Her favorite song is "Almost There" and she loves to sing it and listen to it all the time. We listen to it over and over and over again. I couldn't believe that she actually sang it for the camera, though. She usually gets so shy about that. If you haven't heard the song, it might not be so cute. Who am I kidding? Elsie's always cute! Ha ha.

Happy moment

One of the best sounds in the world is hearing Elsie sing along to "Reflection" from Mulan with her raspy, still kind of sick voice while we snuggle on the couch. It brought a little tear to my eye.

And I ran 5 miles today. That's huge for me! My cheeks are still red almost two hours later. Ha ha.

Elsie has been so sick for the past couple days with a fever and cold symptoms. I took her into the doctor today and found out she has a double ear infection. Poor thing! This has been a rough winter for sickness.
