A LOT of Christmas Pictures

As promised, here are the rest of our Christmas pictures. A word of warning, there are A LOT! I put them in an album on a separate page...the link is

This is a picture of Ella from the other day in a new shirt...Keith doesn't like the camo at all, but I think the wording is perfect! ;-) Heehee...

Ella and Mommy Pictures

Ella and I surprised Keith this Christmas with a picture of the two of us to put in his office. My great photographer friend Lori Mercer took the pictures for us back in November when Ella was about 6.5 months old. I'm just now getting to share them because we kept it a secret from Keith until he could open his Christmas gift. Here are a couple of my favorites. Lori: Keith and I love the pictures...I think you did a wonderful job! Thank you! :-) If you're in the Montgomery area and enjoy Lori's work as much as I do, give her a call at 334-399-1884.

Merry Christmas!

Ok, I know I'm couple of days late. But we were at my parents on Christmas day, so I couldn't get to my computer to download pictures. Plus, since I took over 450 pictures (seriously) it's taking me forever to go through them all. Here's a couple of Ella on her 1st Christmas...more to come later. I hope everyone had a wonderful day full of lots of merry fun! :-)

Williams Family Christmas

We had Christmas with the Williams Family last night. Everybody came to our house this year and we had a great time opening gifts and spending time together. We went to the Christmas candlelight service at Frazer and Ella was so good...she slept through the whole thing! :-)

Pictures Galore

Ok, are you ready for picture overload??? This week has been busy so I've got a lot to post.:-)

To start, we had a Holiday dinner with Sonya, Jerri, and Saddlar. As always, Saddlar and Ella were little flirts...those crazy kids. Anyways, we had a lot of fun and Keith and Sonya even got to pick a little bit on Keith's new guitar. (Even though it's really a Christmas present, he got to bring it out for a little while) Jerri is so good with kids and has a way of making them crack up. Ella laughed at her that night like she has never laughed before. I don't know what her trick is! While opening presents that night, we realized that Ella falls in the stereotype of a baby at Christmas; she was way more interested in the wrapping and tissue paper than the presents!

Next, Ella is all over the place! She's crawling at lighting speed (ok, maybe not that fast, but she's definitely quick), pulling up, and cruising around holding on to things. She even took her first step on Tuesday...and then proceeded to face plant. But she's headed in the right direction! If I turn my back for one second, and I mean one, she's into something. This week I caught her trying to push buttons on the cable box and pulling the blinds down at the window. I tried to contain her in bean bag chair to watch a Baby Einstein but that lasted for about 5 mintues. Ah well, at least she's healthy and active! :-)

We went shopping today on Mulberry Street and found the cutest little Christmas outfit. Too bad there are so few days left for her to wear it! I tried it on her when we got home and she thought she was hot stuff in it!

And finally just some fun Christmas pics I've taken this week. I can't believe Christmas is on Tuesday! I hope everyone has their shopping done and is looking forward to a nice relaxing weekend...ha ha ;-)

Favorite Pics

We have been super busy getting ready for Christmas (which is right around the corner...can't believe it) so I haven't had much time for pictures of Ella or blogging...I know you can't believe it about the picture part, but it's true! However, I have gotten a few and here are my faves.

Also, On Saturday night, Ella made a noise that sounded a whole lot like "Mama." She did it again on Sunday and then today when I put her down and she wanted to be picked right back up, she held her hands up and said "Maaaaama!" So I think it's fair to say that is her first word right? ;-) I know she doesn't know what she's saying, but she is making the sounds so that counts right?? Right?!?!? :-) Haha...Keith and I have a big bet going on what she's going to say first...mama or dada.
