Santa Came!!!

Reid had fun playing with Daddy's good smelly stuff.....of course. Why would he want to play with anything he got??? Murphy's Law! He was having fun exploring through the paper and "stuff" that was laying around the living room.
Go OHIO STATE! We have a little Buckeye on our hands...and now he has the hat to prove it. Now, if he will just wear it!
Ellie ready to dive in! She was so good and really enjoyed opening things this year. It was so fun to watch her.
A PINK guitar!!!! Santa really knew what was at the top of her list! Now she can be just like Daddy....well, his guitar isn't pink, but you get the idea!
And POCAHONTAS, too???? WOW....what a special day it was!
At Grandma and Pappy's house they wrapped up an entire room for Reid and Ellie! (actually, their presents were really large...so this was the best way to wrap them up!) So smart, huh?
Here is Reid trying to get a sneak peek inside!
Yipppppeee....time to rip the paper down! What was in there????
A PRINCESS VANITY WITH MAKE-UP AND JEWELS!!!! Right up Ellie's alley! (oh, and don't forget the fairy wings she is wearing....those were what she was hoping for!!!) And Reid got building blocks with cars, trucks, and helicopters to go with them! So much fun!
Pappy and Reid watching the train go by around the tree. Reid was mesmerized....until he tried to dismantle the entire thing.
Reid and Grandma. Reid wanted to borrow Ellie's STAR glasses for a bit.
Uncle Aaron and Reid watching intently as Brian and Ellie were playing the new Wii.
Of course, Brian had to get in on the STAR action with the glasses....and the famous man point. I am sure he will love me for posting this picture! Sorry, honey!
Ellie and Great-Grandma Wilson. It's always so nice spending time with her. It was a great Christmas. We are blessed....and are thankful for the true meaning of the season. Merry Christmas to you all! We still have Christmas to spend with my family on Saturday...so I am sure there will be another round of pictures to share with you! What a fun time of year it is!

Love the pictures!!! And what a great idea to wrap the whole room! Even I wanted to peek in behind those doors!!

Love the boys in the pink glasses. Very manly, for sure. : ) Ellie is so good for the camera, always flashing her perfect smile. What a cutie! Glad you had a good Christmas - and still more to come!

We have another Christmas tomorrow with my mom too... I love when it gets all stretched out.

Seriously, I can't believe you posted that picture of me. LOL!

Hello, and welcome to my page! I am so glad you are here. I am going to try and show you the average life of a 5 year old from my perspective. Mommy and Daddy will help me along the way if I get stuck.

Let me first introduce my family to you. I am Ellie. I am a 6 year old. I live in Ohio with my Mommy, Daddy, little brother Reid, and dog, Sophie. My mommy is a teacher. She teaches nine and ten year olds and loves it. She has been teaching for twelve years. My daddy works with computers. He works hard everyday.

We all love spending time together. I have wonderful grandparents and a terrific extended family. I am a very lucky girl. Thank you for visiting my page. Write to me any time. I love getting mail!!!

Many blessing to you all.

Love,
Little Ski (Ellie)

Told ya, my hair can be wild! And you thought I was kidding!

Hmmm, Blue's Brother's perhaps?
