The Most Wonderful Time Of Year

Ella and Lucy enjoying Christmas Eve!
We had a wonderful Christmas this year. We have so much to be thankful for and so much to look forward to. It truly is the most wonderful time of year! Ella was a very good girl this year and it sure showed when Santa arrived. She got lots of fun stuff. This girl was spoiled with gifts! There were so many presents, it will take a few car loads back to New York to get everything home. She was definitely more into Christmas this year too and helped opening her presents (though she still doesn't like to tear into that paper!)

Jason and I bought ourselves a nice camera this year as a Christmas gift. We have wanted to invest in a good camera for a while, and now seemed like the perfect time. We got to break it in on Christmas with lots of shots of Pnut.

Our big surprise this year was for our whole family. I secretly had an ultrasound to find out the new baby's gender. Jason had no idea I was doing this. I managed to pull off the surprise...and even kept it a secret for myself too. Through lots of will power, I asked the ultrasound tech to wrap up the results for us to open together. It's a girl! Ella will have a sister in June. We are all very excited and looking forward to the future and the excitement that comes with a growing family!

Here's to a happy and healthy new year for everyone. I know that life is about to get even more exciting in 2012 :-)
