Tis the Season

The countdown is getting really exciting at our house. Ellie has been putting cotton balls on Santa's beard since the first day of December to count down the days until Christmas. We are officially into the REALLY exciting stage because Uncle Aaron is home and presents from far away family members are coming in the mail. I think this Christmas will be very fun for the kids because of their ages. They are both so excited.

It has also been nice doing special things along the way to show the kids what Christmas is really about. Getting gifts for kids who are in need was a really special event this year because Ellie really gets that now. I loved seeing how happy she was to give to others.

We hope the true meaning of Christmas shines brightly at your house this year. Merry Christmas!

Aunt Holly sent gifts in the mail from Florida, and as you can see, Ellie was in shock that Aunt Holly sent accessories for her Zhu Zhu pet that were just perfect!

Ellie all dressed up for her holiday music program at school. I am amazed how grown up she is!

Seeing Santa was lots of fun this year. Reid was asking Santa, "Where is your mouth?" And the entire time he sat there, he was fixated on trying to figure out where Santa's mouth was. Needless to say, all the people in line behind us had a great laugh.

Ellie and Santa having a little heart to heart.

Santa was asking Ellie if she had been good this year. She wouldn't look him in the eyes! Maybe a little guilt set in due to terrorizing her brother from time to time!

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!!!
