Ellie's 1st Christmas...

Ellie's 1st Christmas was full with wonderful memories. However, I did not take a lot of pictures:) I really enjoyed being off from work for the holiday and spending time with Ellie that I totally forgot about the camera & taking pictures!!!! I love watching Ellie's expressions to new things, or people... it's amazing to watch Ellie grow, love & live!

Here's a few holiday pictures

Our 1st Family Picture...

This is my favorite picture the three of us...
"The beginning of our family"

This was the 1st ornament hung on our Christmas tree...

Ellie with her Ya Ya... Ellie is admiring her beautiful dress from her Grandpa & Ya Ya.

Ellie's matching head band that matched her dress.. which she does not mind all that girlie stuff (she left it on for a while).

Ellie checking out her puppet book from her grandpa...

We visited our agency, Bethany while we were in Kansas for Christmas!! Love these ladies!!

Ellie's ggrandma Nana....sweet, sweet lady. She has waited 13 yrs to hold her ggrandbaby!

Brian's ggrandmother's house in Lawerence, KS.. it was so cool to see after hearing him speak of it so many times... really neat!

Ggrandma Nana giving Ellie a Christmas stocking & tin can of chocolate!

Four generations (except for me) Ellie, Brian, grandma & ggrandma Nana!

Ellie is just adorable!! Love your family pictures.
Congratulations on your family!! We logged 8 yrs of waiting for our baby girl, but she really was worth every painful minute of waiting.
