So much to post about. We had both a great and difficult trip to Florida(more on that in another post). We hosted Christmas Eve with our dear friends, the Frith's, and my nephew Michael, and his wife Melissa. It was a lovely evening with good food, and great conversation. Christmas morning was so much fun.....Ellery was not only excited to open her gifts, but she also loved to watch everyone else. Dane was thrilled with his Buzz Lightyear toys and was actually completely occupied for at least an hour(a new record for him). We spent Christmas afternoon/evening with Darin's extended family at his aunt and uncles' house. The children had a great time playing with their 2nd cousins and we enjoyed seeing the rest of the family. All in all, a great year and we are so very blessed!

Cousin Ryan, Grandma & Darin.

Could you just eat them up?

The dancing queens. Ellery and her best friend, Tatum, take tap and ballet together twice a week. Last week they had pictures, so I snapped a few of my own. Could these two be any cuter?

Before--awful carpet.

Sorry, bloggies for my long absense.....we have been some busy beavers around here. As I mentioned about a month or so ago, we decided to rip out our ugly, cheap carpet and replace it with hardwoods. The result--beautiful and much more functional.
