Number 2 - Cashes In

Redeeming her Christmas gift certificate is, 
9 year old, 
Ila May
She brought along her doll,
also named Ila May.

We picked her up early Friday morning.
But first things first...Breakfast.
Her request was waffles!
Not just any old waffles.
They had to be store bought and ROUND.

Waffles it was, with peanut butter and syrup.
Blueberries too!
We have a very busy day and she ate it all.

I think word got out, that when Silas was here, 
he played board games with Papa.
One round of Candy Land,
then it was off  shopping!

Ila had her pick of where to shop.
She chose Hobby Lobby.
Good choice.
She didn't leave empty handed!

When lunch time came around,
she wanted a Freddy's burger.

She decided to eat at home.

This new park is getting a work out!
Last week Silas and his brother were there.
This week, Ila invited her brothers to join her.

What a busy but fun day!
Time to sit back and read a new book with Papa.

The certificate said, choice of dinner.
Ila May informed us that she wanted homemade soup.
She loves any soup, except Pea Soup. 🙄

After dinner, we watched several movies before heading to bed.

Next morning it was rather quiet.
Breakfast and some quiet actives 

These are the new shoes that Ila May picked out to buy.
Aren't they cute?

This precious girl, knows how to draw and is always drawing something and then giving it to me!
Such a big heart!
Helpful and very intuitive.

What a great time we had.
Another mission accomplished!

Love you Ila May!


"Let all that you do be done in love."
