So this is Christmas...

This was our 2nd Christmas with our Ella Bella and she was soooo much fun. Last year was so special because it was her first Christmas and this year was just plain fun watching her taking it all in. The fun and games began on Christmas Sunday. We left from Church and drove to Arkansas for my family Christmas...
After that, we drove to Van Buren and stayed a while for Mike's family Christmas. This was Christmas Eve night. My favorite part of the night was having old scratchy Christmas records playing while these little bitties danced around the room :)
Check out these wild women on their power wheels. They were cruisin for the rest of the night...
On Christmas morning, we drove to my Mom and Dads house for MORE PRESENTS!! Whew! Then we stayed a while at their house before our next trip...

Nana and Ella did a little cooking for us :0)
Then we drove to Springfield, MO to visit Mike's Grandmama and Aunt Sharon which are Ella's Greats! This was Ella's first visit to Grandmama's house and we all were so excited to bring her their for the first time. We played a lot of cards and continued to binge endlessly on food!!!

Then, we started to make our way back home. We stopped and stayed at Mimi and Pops to sleep and break up the trip. Ella was a trooper with all of the traveling. We are excited to be at home to relax. We stayed home last night to just chill. It was very calm and peaceful and it was the perfect way to bring in the new year. 2008 was such a great year and the we are excited to see what 2009 brings for our family, for Ella, and for life! HAPPY NEW YEAR!
