Merry Christmas! (continued)

On the 26th of December we woke up and still had one more Christmas celebration to look forward to! We started the day by going to visit Ellison's Godparents and their families. We love visiting with this special group of people, they mean the world to us!

After Ellison's nap we packed up more presents and headed to my parents house to celebrate Christmas with my whole family. My brother (Ellison's Uncle Bobo) and my uncle (Ellison's GUE) were in town to celebrate. It was a very relaxing afternoon and evening. We spent time socializing, opening presents, watching Ellison entertain everyone and ate a very yummy meal! We did miss the rest of the family crew from Pasadena but will hopefully celebrate together next year :) By around 8pm Ellison was still full of energy and playing with all of her gifts, especially her new pink kitchen!

Our little girl got way too much stuff this year but it was so fun! Not only did Ellison get a ton of stuff to play with she also got music classes from her GUE & GUM (my Uncles)! We are taking the classes through a program called...
Ellison and I did a trial class about a week ago and she really enjoyed it.
After music classes are over at the end of February, Uncle Bobo is treating Ellison to gymnastics classes at...
I am super excited about this! Since Little Gym shut down at the end of the summer I was bummed because Ellison loved it so much. So we are going to try out the Mommy and Me class at Harpeth. I have heard wonderful things about it. If she ends up loving it then we will continue doing it through this upcoming summer during our time off.

Since we have accumulated quite a chunk of new play additions, we actually have turned our dining room into her new playroom. She had a blast celebrating Christmas and I can't wait to see how she is with the whole Christmas holiday next year. Thank you to our families for making this such a wonderful Christmas! We hope everyone had a Merry Merry Christmas and has a Happy Happy New Year!
