Another month has come and gone, and here I am again,
doing a huge post to catch us up in the blog world.
All is well in the Ellis house. Connor is potty training
and it's going pretty good. We can't believe he'll be 3
soon. He makes us laugh every day and his latest
obsession is ice hockey:) He and Cora are finally beginning
to enjoy each other a little more. Cora is growing like
a weed, enchanting us daily. She is so sweet and happy.
She weighed 18 lbs. 9 oz. at her 4 month check up! Her
two bottom, front teeth are cutting through and I just
can't believe it. It is so soon and I know it is the first of
many things that will take her farther and farther from
this wonderful baby stage. My heart stops for a second
each time I think of that. It just goes so fast.

Loving on each other

Helping me bake cookies:)

You can't really see it but here's Cora's first little
pony tail on top of her head.

So strong!

Taking time to shave in the tub

Pretty girl!


Ahhh the silence. It's nice to have a break, but then
you find them like this...

...and you kind of miss the silly little guy:)

And our little princess too.

Cutest Hat On The Cutest Girl

A friend of mine made this hat for Cora and I could
just eat her up every time I put it on her.

Go Suns!!!!

I just couldn't resist posting these pictures. I
can't even blame Chris for this one. Shame on


We have had very cold weather this winter
and so much snow that has stuck around for
a very long time. Chris and Connor took
advantage of one of the nicer days to go out

Looking like a little lumberjack:)

Snapshot Of Twelve Days In Denver

After a long battle with Alzheimer's, my Grandma Pat
passed away on January 24th, 2010. She is dearly missed,
but we all know she is finally at peace. The kids and I
headed over to be with my family and stayed until the
Memorial. Chris had to work, but made it over for the
service and to drive back with us. If you talk to him, ask
him how he got to Denver:)

I got to spend a lot of time at my Grandpa's and made
a trip up to Kremmling to see my parents new place. It
was a long time to be away from Chris, so we tried to keep
ourselves busy until he could get there:) We also went to
the Denver Children's Museum with my friend Kalisa and
her adorable twins, Carli and Jillian. It was great.
