In December sometime I climbed in Ellie's crib with her. She thought it was really funny. She kept climbing all over me and giggling:
We also went to King's Fish restaurant with my dad:
My friend Jaime and I threw our friend Katie's bridal shower. It was super fun, and I'm so glad that everything went well. Here's Katie looking like the Statue of Liberty (because, because.):
And then she got married a couple weeks later, on December 28. Her reception was so pretty; my same friend Jaime planned and decorated everything and it looked so good. Here are some pictures from her reception:
We also went to the Hobbit showing on December 13 (sorry, these pictures are out of order, but I don't feel like changing them). It was so fun! If you'll remember, my dad's law firm rented out a screen at a movie theater and we all got to invite a bunch of people, so I've never known so many people before at one movie. In addition to many of our friends (seen below), a lot of my cousins, some of my aunts and uncles, and even my grandparents were there! And, of course, I knew all the people from my dad's office. It was awesome! And the movie was great, too. Such a great event!
Later in December (I think the week of Christmas), Jason, Ellie, and I took a walk with Tyler and Sarah. We went pretty slow at first, because Ellie didn't want to get it her stroller. She wanted to walk down the street all by herself:
Then, in January, my stepdad Stefan came for a quick visit. He flew down to California for some business, and stayed overnight at our house and got to see Ellie. It was so great to see him!
Finally, in January, our friends Brett and Candace got married! We've known both Brett and Candace forever, and it was so exciting when they started dating and then eventually got engaged. We love them both, and are so happy for them.
