Yes, that was quite a long time away

Well, that was a much longer hiatus than I was planning on. It always seems so much harder to start again when it's been a long while that I've written. The only thing I've missed is all of my girl's birthdays and Christmas. :)

When we left off, Grampa and Nana were here for a visit. What fun was had by all. We decorated for Christmas before they left and they got to celebrate Charlotte's birthday with us and have a little early party for Ella. 

Charlotte's birthday was the day after Thanksgiving and then Ella's was a week later. We call it our birthday season as my birthday is also within days of theirs. 

I've always wondered how many pictures a post will hold. I don't usually just share crazy numbers of pictures and some of these are even a bit blurry or are not the greatest resolution (off the iPhone). But I will post them anyway. 

We had a joyous relaxing Christmas break and this week have been slowly starting back to our regular schedule.
