Ellie's first (play)date

She's a little bit country, he's a little bit rock'n'roll - and this is a story about how they fell in love.

Ellie had her first date back in October.
She was very excited, but also a little frantic.
Mom, he's so great and I just want everything to be perfect!
 She ran around like crazy cleaning the house before he came.
Finally I made her sit down a take a moment to center herself.
I was worried her nerves would be shot before the young man even arrived.
Imagine my concern when this handsome, rebellious face appeared at my front door.
I allowed him in, and it was obvious that Ellie was mad for him.
They spent the afternoon together: sharing toys, having adventures, just being close generally.
Pretty soon, though, things started to get a little hot and heavy between them.
And when Ellie asked me to give them some privacy, I had to put my foot down.
Isaac, I can see your feelings for my daughter are very strong, but we have rules in this house.
 They didn't cool off, so I had to ask Isaac to leave.
Eleanor was distraught - but I'll not have my daughter engaging in immoral behavior.
I told her there would be other boys.
 I don't want any other boys - I only want him!
I know she wants him, and secretly, I want him for her as well. 
In fact, I plugged their photos into a program that tells you what your baby might look like.
Now, is that a cute future grand-baby or what!


  1. Lol. You are so funny! I have to say though, it appears that Ellie is the one with the strong feelings. Isaac, just like every male, looks a little bewildered and indifferent. That future grandbaby, however, is super cute!

  2. From the looks of it, it was Ellie who was all hands!! I'm glad you were there to keep those kids under control. I had no idea Isaac was such the little Romeo, but I can't say I'm surprised.

    This is sooo cute, I love it. I'm so glad that their first (play)date was documented. And oh my gosh, future grandbaby! That's almost as hilarious as it is creepy.

  3. Such cute pictures! I won't tell Alan that his first love has moved on. :)

  4. Haha! I love the story! They are such a handsome couple:)

  5. So cute! We really enjoyed this story. The pictures are SO DARLING. Keep the posts coming...

  6. I guess a cross-country romance is a bit hard to keep alive. I'm glad Eleanor has found a new love. Mitch, on the other hand, hasn't discovered girls yet. Except his cousin. whoops.

  7. you are so creative and fun! however, you should save Ellie for Michael! :)

  8. Whoa! Tell Joe he needs to start polishing his begun when playmates come over. Way to catch them Ellie!

  9. Super cute! Ellie sure is a keeper, so Isaac better do what he can to snag her up early! :)
