My cousin Lindy and her daughter, Kit, came to visit us on Saturday January 4th and meet AJ. We always love getting together with their family! Unfortunately the visit was too short, but it was so nice to see them and have them meet our new little guy.
January 5 was also Ella’s church choir Christmas concert. Yes, it’s after Christmas, but the concert was originally supposed to be on December 8th, but snow, ice and cold weather canceled the performance, so they postponed it. Ella, of course, did a fabulous job and sang loud and clear. She looked so beautiful in her Christmas dress and I couldn’t have been more proud of her.
Ever since then I’ve been trying to get in my groove. Our house is a complete disaster, but I’m slowly working on that. I finally caught up on laundry, and fortunately we’re eating well thanks to generous families at church who bring dinner by.
That said, Joe and I are really trying to make an effort to do special things with just Ella. Yesterday Ella and I went out to lunch just the two of us, then she helped me go grocery shopping. Joe has been good about doing activities with just her so that she knows she isn’t pushed aside.
