Our cute lil Indian

The week before Thanksgiving, Ella's school had their annual Thanksgiving program and feast. The kids were adorable while they sang songs and banged on their little drums....
The "feast" consisted of chicken nuggets, tater tots and applesauce. This school has been doing this long enough to have figured out that most 4 year olds don't love the traditional Thanksgiving food:) Here is Ella digging in...

Here is Ella realizing I am taking pictures of her....

Daddy drove all the way from work(which is almost half an hour away!) just to be there. It meant a lot to Ella that he was there too. I captured a couple of sweet pictures of the two of them.

This is my favorite. Look at her little hand on his shoulder while she talks to him. It just melts my heart!

Then Cali decided to steal Ella's drum for a while and presented us with a drum solo.
We are so proud of you Ella! You did a great job at your program singing and doing the hand motions. And we loved the costume you made. You made me and Daddy smile!

Aww, what a cute little NATIVE AMERICAN girl. Lol. I wish they had figured out that kids don't like traditional thankgiving feasts when I was little and did the whole pilgrim/indians thing. Great job, Ella!

I think she is simply gorgeous. A true lamanite if I do say so myself. We are blessed to have such beautiful girls in our lives. I love the pictures of Ella and daddy, she will always remember her dad taking the time for her he sets the bar very high and that's a good thing. Love you Ms. Ella Lynn the cutest little American Indian. Yeah for holidays.
