Gpa and Gma Tilson Christmas

I have to break these next couple of posts up, so as not to overload you with pics! I video taped and tooks pics of everything! So fun! Ella has had so much fun, and been so good considering the long days and tons of people! Christmas Eve we spent the day with Gpa and Gma Tilson and Ella's Aunts and cousins. That evening we went to the Christmas Eve service @ church, and then on to the big Great Gpa Veer get together with 30+ people!

Just a quick post with random pictures from the past couple of weeks! Lots more pics to come from all of our Christmas celebrations! Can't wait!

Every year, Kels and I have gone to Botanica Illuminations. It was freezing this year!

Ella's first picture w/ Santa, totally unimpressed, and FYI he was Indian, who knew

Opening her first present of the season

Ella's favorite thing is to show us "how big" she is!

My Mom, Sister and I hosted/decorated a table @ the Christmas Tea this year

Holiday Time

This past week we enjoyed 3 Thanksgiving feasts!! Ella did so good with so many people holding her! She sure is a friendly little girl! I cannot figure out how to upload the video, but last Monday Ella started CRAWLING all over the place! It is so fun to watch, and to hear her call out my name as she follows me from room to room! She pulls herself up on everything, even if it just falls right back on top of her! Lots of tears this week. We are just starting to decorate for Christmas! I have been looking forward to this since the day Ella was born! The pics are from Thanksgiving and decorating Grandpa and Grandma Veers tree.
