Sneaky Snake Ellie




You know those little cubes of beef bouillon? The type that you put in your soup for flavoring. Have you ever tasted one of those things? Disgusting! That's what you see here folks. My daughter is notorious for being a "sneaky snake." She often gets caught sneaking into the pantry and shutting the door behind her. She loves to rifle through the boxes and bags to find treats. It is not very hard to detect this sneaky snake. She often leaves clues to her goings ons. Trails of evidence can be found in crushed crackers left behind, rolling Gobstoppers on the floor or empty wrappers hidden behind the door. Well, this day she got it good! She snuck into the pantry and found my package of beef bouillon cubes. Well, the cubes are dark - like chocolate. She must have unwrapped one and popped the discovery into her mouth. Soon after she did so - out she came running, screaming like a wild woman! Yelling that the chocolate was yucky! "Yucky, Mamma - Yucky, Mamma," she was spitting and yelling! So what did I do in all of my compassion? I laughed soooo hard and snapped some pictures. I don't think she appreciated my giggles! My Ellie girl, the sneaky snake beef bouillon eater!

Oh Charissa..you are so funny. I would have done the same thing..laughed and took pictures. And as for Ellie.....probably not the kind of "chocolate" she was expecting. Just the thought of one of those entire things in your mouth...Yuck is right. The pictures are great though!!

Oh man...I was laughing so hard yesterday when I first read this story...Josiah HAD to run in and see what I was HEE-HAWing at. He read the story himself, then we all told Dad when he got home... a good laugh for everyone. She must have bit right through the cube! That would be some Yucky Chocolate!

She's such a silly girl. Somehow this reminds me of Samuel. Sounds like something he would do. I love the pictures! We had an incident this morning with no diaper, poo poo, and naked baby. Myah thought it would be funny to paint her legs and tummy. I didn't get pictures though. Kinda gross. Anyway, Ellie's so sweet and how can you resist that face and those tears?
