New Years Day

We had a very quiet New Years Eve. Steve and I stayed up and watched the ball drop and had some champagne at midnight, and watched a movie until almost 2am - unfortunately Ella didn't get the memo that we had stayed up late, and she still woke up bright and early on New Years Day :).

Happy New Year to Cory!

We had a really nice day, we went to Dad and Donna's for the day to celebrate Christmas and New Years.

Ella playing with some of her new Christmas gifts - she is absolutely in love with her new cupcake set!

With Grandma and Grandad

Christmas gift for Grandad (and, of course she donated her gift-unwrapping skills)

Watching videos of herself - one of her favorite things

We had a great visit - lots of catching up, tons of playing for Ella, and a great meal. Ella missed her nap so by the time we left she was exhausted. She wanted to keep her new backpack on her lap, and fell asleep after about 2 minutes in the car!

The next day she decorated her bedroom wall with her new butterfly stickers - here she is, very proud of her handiwork

Here's to a great 2011!!
