This is her dressed as the Sugar Plum Fairy from The Nutcracker leaping over a snowflake placed on the ground by her teacher. This action shot just makes me beam so proudly!
And here she is letting her personality shine. Ella loves the camera, loves to perform, and seriously adores the stage and spotlight.
There are 5 positions in dance (she knew that when the teacher asked) and she showed us each position, this should be #3.

Miss Ella turned 4 on Friday! We had such a fun time celebrating this little girl. She woke up early to open her new birthday outfit and was so excited to share cupcakes with her classmates at preschool. Her teachers made her an adorable purple birthday crown which she proudly wore most of the day. For dinner we celebrated at Chuckie Cheese with Pappa and Grammy and her cake of choice, Little Mermaid. She loved her birthday gifts from her Grandparents and spent all of Saturday playing with each one. Ella is such a sweetie pie most of the time, and a drama queen only some of the time. Her Daddy and her are very close and definitely have that special father/daughter bond. She loves playing make believe games with her older sister and is very patient and loving with her little brother. We are so proud of her and love her very much!
Happy Birthday Ella!

Ella walked for chocolate and pearls, we figured with Grant's appetite that chocolate would probably be a good motivator for him as well. As you can see he is very interested in what Daddy has.
You can also see that he wants it the easy way, "Hand it over Pops!"

The girls received new snow gear from their Great Grandma this Christmas and are delighted to go out and play whenever they get a chance. We've had two snowfalls big enough to warrant "playing in the snow" and this last one offered perfect snowman snow.
Unfortunately after the snow came warm weather and they ended up with slushy snow and a crumbling snowman (moments after he was built).
But these two didn't mind, plus they LOVE to have hot chocolate with marshmallows and whip cream to warm them up afterwards.
