Oh and of course had a ton of Christmas themed photo shoots.......
We had a wonderful time celebrating Ella's first Christmas. Ella's Uncle Ryan came home from Boston and her Uncle Connor surprised us with a last minute trip home from California.
And of course we love spending time with Aunt Katelyn, Aunt Carly and Uncle Ty too.
We spent Christmas Eve with the whole Keith clan. Ella loved spending time with her Great Grammie and Grampie and all her uncles, aunts and cousins -especially cousin Owen. Brandon fried a turkey (for the second time) and it was so yummy! Grammie knit all the ladies scarves - even Ella. We had a wonderful time celebrating the birth of the Lord together.
We then woke up Christmas morning and spent some sweet time together as a family of three. It was so nice to snuggle together as we exchanged our gifts, stockings and ornaments. Christmas day was spent with my family enjoying little Ella, eating too much food and playing board games. We love board games.
It was a very special first Christmas for Ella. Each year it will get better and better as we share with her the meaning of Christmas, the special blessings we enjoy on this day and the family traditions that make it all the more special. I can't wait to develop our own traditions too as we make many family memories.
Love my family!
Especially my little family of three.
And Ella's smile.
And in case you want more cuteness.
I did immediately remove the lights from her mouth. After one photo of course.
