Oh the joys of growing up

It's not that I don't like the baby phase but I am really starting to enjoy Ella and all the new things that she is doing. She has such a personality. I love the way she smiles when I come home from work, I love the way she gets excited when she knows when she is going to eat (A true Krauth), I love the way she gets in the bath and just starts kicking, I love the way she starts imitating people with her actions. We have the coolest baby and I just Love the way she is.

Speaking of imitating people Oma taught her how to do this.

Christmas Fun!

This years Christmas was a three day event! After all was said and done it felt more like a three day marathon. Our darling daughter did all three events with such ease and grace like only Ella can. Her laid back personality let her take in all the new and crazy happenings and traditions.

We started our pre-christmas eve celebrations with a Mackenzie Christmas get together.

On Christmas Eve, Ernie, Ella and I went to church. We followed up church with stockings and then we celebrated with the Krauth kids at Ernie's mom's house with our traditional Fondue experience.

Christmas day was kind of a blur as Ernie and I were extremely tired from staying out late the night before and of course Ella was up early on Christmas morning. (and rightly so... it is Christmas after all) A lot to fit into three days, but we managed. Here are the final pictures of Christmas morning and some pictures of Christmas at my parents.

Merry Christmas from the Krauths! We hope you were blessed this Christmas Season by family and friends and the remembrance of Christ Birth.
