Ella's new scooter

Ella has been wanting a new scooter for quite a while now. Instead of just going out and buying it (like we both really wanted to!), we decided to make her save up and buy it with her own money. Yesterday, we counted up and discovered she had almost enough. We called Daddy and he gave her permission for a little loan (as long as she paid him back in kisses!). =)
Boy, was she excited!! We headed to Toys R Us, and, after much debating, she picked out a new pink Princess scooter (big surprise here! haha!). She figured it would match her bike and helmet. It just so happened to be on sale, so she didn't even have to borrow anything from Daddy!
Cade was along for the ride and looking cool...
He had a little money Great-Grandma and Grandpa Martin had given him for Easter. He ended up with a new lawn mower!! So fun!
Waiting patiently (or trying to, anyways) for Mommy to put the scooter together...
Ta-Da!!
It's going to take some practice, but she'll get the hang of it. She has already been working hard on it this morning.
And she'll tell anyone who asks, "I got a new pink Princess scooter and I bought it with my own money!" =)

Noah has that same lawn mower! I got it at a yard sale last weekend for 50 cents! I was pumped! Terry is excited for him to "mow" with him! Ha!

Way to go, Ella! Leah has that same scooter and loves it. She, however didn't learn a very valuable lesson like you did. Santa must have stopped at Toys R' Us for her last year :)
