Merry Christmas!!

Merry Christmas! Yes, I know we are a day late. But since I'm pretty much late for everything, why not this? Better late than never, and New Year resolutions are still a few days away.

First of all, I want to thank all my family and friends for housing us, thinking of us, and offering support these past months with Andrew away! He is home safe and we are back in Germany. It is so awesome having him back home and he has stepped back into taking care of babies like a champ! We have had a great time going to Christmas markets, being snowed in with the family, and getting over our jet lag.

On the 23rd my sweet little baby boy turned 1! I can't believe he is so big so fast. I really feel like I just came home from the hospital with my bundle and he grew up overnight. It's not fair. We joke about the fact that he doesn't look much like dad at all- so white and blue eyes to match. He had a fun little party here in Germany and he got cake-faced really fast--it was so fun to watch. Such a sweet loving little guy, a good listener, good eater, and all around pleasant person. I can tell he is the kind of guy already that people will want to surround themselves with--a real positive spirit.

Ellie is a bona fide big girl, big sister, and Disney Princess. She wears Princess underwear, paints her nails and demands to wear a dress or skirt every day--even in the snow. Although she is shy, she knows what she wants and is not afraid to stand up for herself. She is quite the artist and dancer, very good at accessorizing, singing, and riding ponies. :) She is sweet with animals and even lets horses, goats, and birds eat out of her hand (I've always been afraid of that!). She is my love, and it's astounding finally having real conversations with my little girl.

We wish our friends and family peace and happiness for the holidays. And hope your Christmas was merry and white! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Phone Pictures-- Month in Review

Will is crawling!!

Ellie is a dancing princess!!

Ellie is 3~ yeah!!

Disneyland!! We took Ellie to a special lunch with Snow White, Ariel, Aurora, Belle and Cinderella. Little girl heaven! It so much fun. She really thought they were the real thing. I hope it will be something she remembers in a special way as she gets older. All of the princess' were very sweet except for Ariel. She was a bit pushy with the picture taking. I always liked her until now:)

Fun at the park
