Thanksgiving In Evergreen

Well, blogging has definitely taken a backseat
these days, so I'll do my best to catch up. All
is well here at the Ellis house, Cora is getting
soooo big. She was 15 lbs. 4 oz. at her 2 month
check up! She is smiling all the time and we
are just so grateful to have her. Connor is busy
as always. We've been doing lots of "Christmas"
things with him this year because he can really enjoy
and understand so much more than previous years.
We spent Thanksgiving in Evergreen/Denver with
my family and plan to head to Phoenix to be with
Chris's family for Christmas. Here are some of
the moments we've captured from our busy Holiday

We got over a foot of snow this week. The boys had
to get to work!!

Cora Grace


We went to the Parade of Lights with our friends the
Stocks. Here's me and Nicole. Cora too, she's snuggled
in my jacket:)

Connor and Ella. Too cute.

Ready for Christmas!

Making cookies. Enough sprinkles there??!

We hiked up to the big Arch in Moab with
Connor's friend Nick and his Mom, Stacie.
It was a beautiful day and I definitely got the
easy load...

Here's Cora in a cute little outfit and also our visit
with Santa.

So snuggly!

Connor would not sit on his lap or talk to him, but this
is better than the last two years where he is crying in
his picture:) Santa is going to bring Connor a "surprise"
since Connor would not tell him what he wanted.

He did get a book and a candy cane from Santa
