Livy has been a wild child lately, so I was excited to capture her in a rare moment of peace while we were at the mall over break. I just love her little personality, but some days she really tires me out.
On New Year's Eve, my mother-in-law came up for the day. We all went to lunch, then Nancy & I took Ella to see Sing! I personally loved it, but Ella wasn't as into it as I expected. I think that the plot was a little over her head, but she still enjoyed herself.
Ella's homework over break was to take a picture of us reading together as a family. I had Eric take the picture, and this was the best one. My eyes look funky & Livy isn't looking. I figured it was for Ella's class though, so she should be the shining star of the picture.
Ella's biggest accomplishment of 2017 is learning to write her last name!! She is so proud of herself & writes her full name on everything now! It was literally the first day back from break, so her teacher & I were both surprised when she did it!
This past weekend, we had one last Christmas celebration to attend. We drove to Eric's dad's on Saturday & got to hang out with Miss Ophelia! We all had lunch at one of our favorite restaurants, then went back to spend the night at Grammy Mary & Grandpa Dan's house. These two were pretty excited about it!
They love to eat all of their meals together at this little picnic table. Their conversations are just adorable & hilarious.
And after we left Grammy & Gramps house, we went straight to Aunt Britt's to see Baby MJ! I don't get to see her nearly as often as I'd like because of my cheer schedule & the fact that it's freezing, so I was more than happy to snuggled with her, eat chili, and watch football.
And yesterday, Eric got to go with Ella on her field trip! They visited a toy library & she absolutely loved it. She had a half day too, so daddy spoiled her & took her to McDonald's for lunch, and then she got to have "the whole house to herself" while daddy worked from home.
