Christmas was definitely extra fun this year- I'm not sure who had more fun, Ella or us? She was quite serious about the whole thing, and enjoyed opening gifts- hers and anyone else who would let her open theirs. The big deals of the day were her new tricycle (or motorcycle as she calls it), and her play kitchen. The kitchen was given to her by her great-grandmother, who also bought me my first play kitchen. Very special. And J and I spent 2.5 hrs. putting it together- also special. We really feel like parents now, and certainly appreciate ours a little more.
