Christmas preparations

What we've been up to lately...

decorating the tree

undecorating the tree

making our own spiced nuts and packaging them up for friends

ringing bells in our church's bell choir

Happy Birthday!

To the man I love, a wonderful husband and father, a very Happy Birthday! I can't imagine life without you. I'm so glad we're in this together!

Three years have flown by... and now my baby has turned into this little girl....

She is cute, funny, fun, and smart. She is opinionated and can be demanding. She loves reading, doing art projects, playing with Little People, dressing her dolls, jumping off of furniture, and most of all she LOVES music. She amazes me each day and I'm so glad to be her Momma.

Today was a very special day. We started her birthday by going swimming at Mt. Scott. All the grandparents were there, as well as a little friend from church.

In the evening after opening gifts we went to a special place for dinner.
Can you guess where it is?
Did you guess yet? If not, this next picture should give it away...
Elisa chose to go to IKEA for her birthday. And I have to say, it was perfect. So kid-friendly and fun. We ate in the restaurant, and then played in the children's section. Elisa and Jonathan had a heyday! Elisa also chose princess plates and napkins, and chocolate cake.
Happy 3rd birthday my little girl. I love you beyond words.
