said through the mail slot...

Tonight I dropped a treat by my friend Julie's house. Little Elliot and I are great friends, and even though it was an hour past her bedtime (maybe especially because it was an hour past her bedtime), she invited me several times to come over and play with her. I only stayed a few minutes, and as I as getting into my car, the front door opened and Julie told me that Elliot had something else to say. She wanted me to know that if I wanted to, I could call her tomorrow on the phone and come over and play with her.

The best part? Before her mom opened the door, Elliot called for me through the mail slot in the front door. "Jenny Reeder! Jenny Reeder"

Love those little messages. That made my day!

Elliot has a sweet little soul and is about the funniest kid I've ever talked to...whether it be Skype or phone she's good for a smile. I may be biased as the Aunt but thanks for sharing your story tonight. It definitely brought a smile to my face.

it was priceless I got such a kick out of it, I also loved when she said she loved you. I am way partial but I love that kid.

SO cute! It is the best when little kids want to be with you, there is just something about it.

Jenny - love your blog. Loved your London entry. Totally identify with that feeling and I am so glad you took off and went.
And about Elliot - I am not surprised. You are such good company to any age. Miss you!
