Christmas with Nonnie and Don T.

Ella's first Santa Claus!

We were so excited to wake up so Ella could see what Santa Claus brought her. She went straight to her busy gears. It took her a while explore her "Laugh and Learn Living Room," but once she started playing around in it, she got really excited. We had a great Christmas, but I can't wait for the excitement on her face in the years to come. Jason and I hadn't really gotten each other anything for a couple of years so we went all out this Christmas. Once everthing settled down, Ella waved at me and said something resembling "bye-bye." That was probably the best gift of all.

Playin at MeeMaw's house!

MeeMaw said that she would keep Ella while Jason and I did some shopping and went to a movie. We went to see the movie "Australia," which was pretty good if you can get past the first hour.

Infant 2

Ella moved up to the infant 2 class a few weeks ago, now that she is mobile. The other little girl is her friend, Lauren. I think they get each other sick. The teacher told me that they hold hands at the table. So sweet! Ella has figured out that she can crawl beyond the living room. Before, we would take her to the kitchen or the playroom and put her down. Now she just goes herself. We caught her trying to get her toys a little early. That little stinker, I didn't know she even realized they were there.

Somebody is starting to look like their mommy!

Ella and Daddy were having lots of fun while I was finishing some work. If Jason said "ooooo," Ella said "oooooo." If Daddy blew bubbles, Ella blew bubbles. She was so cute, you can see I'm taking more pictures than working! At home, Ella has tons of toys, probably too many. What does she want to play with? My mouse and the remote control! Naked of course!

Nonnie to the rescue!

Since baby Ella was so sick, Nonnie offered to help so we could go back to work. (Ear infection#2 plus some pretty nasty drainage and a cough)

New Tree, New Camera

 

This year we put up a 12ft tree, courtesy of Sams Club. I love it! Also, I finally got a camera like I have wanted/needed for a long time! A nikon D80. It will take me a while to learn exactly how to get the best images but, in the mean time, this is one of my first shots! I'm so excited!

Practice Christmas

Jason Said that he was going to blow the yard today. I just couldn't bear to see him drag the electric blower everywhere, knowing there was a gas blower under the tree. Besides, it gave Ella some practice for Christmas day! My poor baby is getting sick. I think this time might be bad.
