Chris and I just got back from a wonderful Cancun vacation. We went to celebrate my upcoming 30th birthday next month! We stayed 4 nights at Secrets Silversands Riviera. It was absolutely amazing...great food, drinks, and service. We relaxed by the pool and beach for 4 days and got spoiled rotten with people waiting on us. It was a much needed vacation, but I was sure ready to get back to my Ella. I missed her sooo much.

Picture of our resort...6 pools, jacuzzi tubs in every room, beds on every balcony, 5 star restaurants...amazing
Poolside restaurant and bar...

Our room was super nice with an pool/ocean view

The Holiday Season

We had a great Christmas season. This year felt really laid back and we really enjoyed each other so much. We started a new family tradition where we cut down our own tree... it felt much like "A Christmas Vacation" when we forgot the saw and money after driving 1 1/2 hours to get the tree :) Good memories:) 

This is as close to Santa as Ella would get...she was terrified!
Grammy joined us in our snowman building
Ella was scared of him once he was built. She thought he was a real...maybe Frosty does come to life:) He lasted 4-5 days and she had to look him everyday (from afar). She named
 him Hat because he wore Daddy's hat.

Ella gave both her Grammy and Nana calendars of her for Christmas
Her new tunnel...she LOVES it.

She's sitting in her new chair...she didn't know what to think of all her presents
...she was confused

Ella and Grandpa

Who's the child in the family?:)
