Christmas and the home stretch

I didn't know Christmas could be so much fun again! We had a great time watching Ella's eyes light up with ALL of her presents. Her new sound when she sees something that she likes is a very hi pitched "AWWHHHHHHH." Needless to say there were plenty of those over the holidays.

Mom and dad came into town for Christmas day so we all got up to see that Santa had brought Ella a tricyle. She is quite fond of it even though she can't reach the petals yet. Her dad is a pro at pushing her around on it.

We then headed out for Lubbock to go see Jim's grandparents and ate a lot of food and had some great fellowship with the family.

Here's Ella in her Christmas outfit from Gran. Thanks Gran!!

On New Year's it was off to San Angelo to see Taylor and Audrey and do Christmas with them. It is always a lot of fun to get together with them. I felt so honored that they came all the way from London just to visit!! Then on Saturday after New Year's we traveled to Snyder to visit with my mom's family and then headed home.

We can't forget about the arrival of Miss Sadie. I went to the Dr. on Thurs. and we have planned the c-section for January 29th. Yes, that is 2 1/2 weeks away! Oh my! I can't believe I will be the mother of two girls. That's really scary. I'm 36weeks and feeling pretty good however, I am getting a bit uncomfortable. Please pray for a good delivery and fast recovery!

Here is a picture of my 36 week belly:
