Ellie was so excited for her first Christmas. She had such a great time visiting with family, eating amazing food and taking it all in. Ellie took the opportunity to reflect on the year and all the blessings she has in her life. Sometimes we get so caught up in our dreams and what’s next, it’s important to take a step back and reflect on the incredible fortunes of the present: the love of family, the ability to think and live freely, a warm roof over our heads, plentiful food (and beverage) and the opportunity to experience life in all it’s splendor.
We spent Christmas Eve with the Thompson clan and Christmas day with the Doman fam. Below are some pics and videos. Christmas takes on a whole new meaning with little kids – so much excitement and fun!
