Copy Cat

Ella has recently started copying things that Aaron and I do. For instance, I currently have a cold and every time I cough so does Ella. Well, the other night. Aaron was feeding Ella dinner and he yawned this great big yawn and Ella copied him, sound and all. Here is a video of her doing it. She doesn't hold out the sound as long as Aaron, but you get the point.

Christmas 2008

Hey everyone, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! Aaron, Ella, and I stayed home this year and had our own little Christmas. It was amazing. It was really relaxed and it was great to spend time with Aaron and Ella. Here are some pictures of Ella with Santa and some of her opening presents as well.
I thought that Ella might be scared of Santa. But when we placed her on his lap, she just stared at him in quizzically. She just wanted to know who he was. She tried pulling off his beard, too. But she never cried. She really didn't have any interest in opening up presents, but she did enjoy the presents that she got. All in all I think it was a successful Christmas.

Yes, Larah... she wakes up grouchy like her mom.

This is a video of Ella playing in her new toy that she got for Christmas. She really likes it.
