And on a side note, she informed her Daddy this morning that they will dance to "I Loved Her First" at her wedding. And as I type this she is at the rodeo with her girlfriend seeing the Jonas Brothers. I tell you what...this little girl is growing before my very eyes.

No More Training Wheels
Today Frank was cleaning out the garage and Ellie saw G's old bike and said, "I want to ride this one without training wheels." So Frank put her on and first try, little Miss Ellie Belly took off. No need to coach her much on how to ride a bike without training wheels...just how to stop. Her little legs are just so short that she can't touch the ground. So when she stops, instead of putting her foot down like a normal person would, she has to lean the bike to the side and put her foot down. We are still working on that part. Today she'd just crash and jump up with a smile and say, "I'm okay." I think it will be a matter of days and her pretty little blue beach bike will be training wheel free. We were so proud of her and she was so proud of herself. She kept telling me, "I am so proud of myself." She said, "I am not old enough to ride without training wheels and I did it." Sooo cute. I just love her. What a little BIG girl!
