Excuse the mess, Ellison was right in the middle of playing...
Too much stuff!
We also did a major makeover to our family room. It was very blah and boring as you can see (these are before photos)...
Connor painted the whole room by himself while I distracted Miss E, he painted a bookshelf, some shelving, we had a gift card to Pottery Barn so we purchased a few new pillows and other decor accessories. All in all we love the way the room has turned out!
Ellison and I have had a couple of play dates with friends and we have been running a bunch of errands. We had a very low key New Year's Eve. We ate a yummy dinner at home and then we were in bed around 10:30pm! Tonight I am going out with a friend for some much needed girl time. Tomorrow is our last day of our 2 week holiday break which makes me kind of sad. However I know Ellison is ready to go back to school to get some energy out and see her friends. Here are a few pictures of what Ellison has been very occupied doing lately...we hope everyone had a great New Year's!
