Life Lately

So technically, if I was going to pick up where I left off with Life Lately, I'd have to go all the way back to Halloween. But since none of us have that kind of time on our hands, I'm going to stick with the last week or so :)

We kicked off the month of December with lots of holiday decorating! I love a festive house, so we got busy! We even helped at my parents & Ella helped at Eric's mom's house too. #allthetwinklelights

We aren't doing full year dance this year, because she has been very busy with Pre-K. But we decided to enroll in a very special Frozen dance class for the month of December. Ella is obviously loving it & we get to attend a performance on Wednesday! 

Sprinkles, our Elf, has made a triumphant return to our house this month! She's been kind of boring most days, but the other morning she left sugar cookies for Ella to decorate. That was a huge hit! 

I was able to sneak away with my besties to go on a wine tour the other weekend & it was a huge blast! We toured Cayuga Lake & each winery had an ornament for you when you arrived. I drank too much, ate too much, and laughed too much. It was a great day! 

While I was on the wine tour, the girls were in Hornell with Eric's mom. They went to a Polar Express party, a Christmas party, and then visited the big man himself! Ella was over the moon, Livy was horrified. 

We thought that Livy might just have been out of her element though and that if we were with her she'd be fine, so we headed to the mall on Saturday to try again. 

Nope, still not having it. But she looked adorable in the process. 

Ella thought that the red kettles were the best thing ever & now wants to be a bell ringer. I'll have to sign us up for next year, though I'm sure she wouldn't last for more than 5 minutes. 

And the biggest news of all has been the early arrival of my niece! Miss Madigan James surprised us all on Sunday morning! We're all praying that she'll be able to come home tonight & that my sister can settle in to her role as mommy.
