First Christmas as a Family of 4

It was our first Christmas with two children. Ella was a bit overwhelmed with the whole thing, and like a typical 2-year old, was most interested in the wrapping paper and boxes! I swear the toys are now breeding and multiplying in our house...where will we find room for it all?!

One Year Ago Today....

....we saw Ella's face for the very first time. On December 11, 2008, we received "the call" from our social worker with Ella's information. The next day, December 12, 2008, we saw pictures of our sweet girl. All I can remember is laughing at her crazy hair! Needless to say (and to Bill's dismay), I've gone a bit crazy with the hair accessories in the last year! It sure feels like we've known Ella for far longer than just a year. Enjoy these first pictures of her and some recent ones!
