All Things Winter!

Winter has come and gone here in the Peach State!  One of the many reasons we love living here: Pool side in March! But let's first catch up on all that we have been up to!

Ryan had the honor once again in joining the Briefcase Brigade in the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Christmas Parade.  He was able to show the city his amazing Bruno Mars dances moves once again!  Ella got to see just how cool her dad is!

Ella got to celebrate her first christmas.  (But I don't think she even realized it!)  Ryan and I enjoyed starting our own family traditions in celebrating our first Christmas in our own home with our family.  We kept burgers on Christmas Eve and the Cinnamon Roll Christmas tree for breakfast on Christmas morning, but added in the Sparkle Box and a BIG family Christmas present.

We did our first family trip on an airplane together to celebrate my grandmothers 80th birthday.  We had traveled in the car for trips but nothing this big!  Not to mention Ella was riding in style on a private jet and even got to sit in the cockpit.  She got to see her first snow and be in -5 degree weather!  Not bad for a six month old!

Ella started music class.  We go once a week and sing, play instruments, and dance.  She loves it!  She gets very vocal and excited.  She is the youngest in her class but loves watching the older kids.

Since Christmas Ella is contently learning or doing something new!  It is so hard to keep up with all of it.  We went to see the Georgia Swarm (indoor lacrosse), our first professional sports game, Ella is sitting up like a pro, and she eats everything from asparagus to mango to avocado and loves it all.
