Ella's First Holiday

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and while I know that everyone is way past that and on to the Christmas holiday, I'd like to do a little reflecting...

We started off the holiday on Wednesday night at Redemption World Outreach Center, our church. Brandon's parents, brother, and sister-in-law came down and we all attended together after eating at Chili's. The Berrys can put down some chips and salsa, y'all!

After church, we all headed "up the hill" to Hendersonville, NC (about an hour drive). We stayed up talking and playing until late and then settled down for bed. On Thursday, we woke up to Orange Sweet Rolls (a personal favorite of ours) and helped Denice get things ready for the big meal.

As you can see, Ella had on a personalized onesie made by her "Simply Sassy" mama...

She was "Berry Thankful" for a change of clothes after she drooled all over this after only half an hour of wearing it. I need to start making bibs, I guess! She was great with everybody. I am so thankful to have a child that doesn't mind being held by other people because she is a very loved little child and everybody wants a piece of her!

On Friday, we spent the morning packing and driving to Greensboro, NC to visit my parents and extended family. It was a great time of REST and MORE GOOD FOOD. Brandon got to meet my cousins (3 boys who are all pretty cool) and we were able to show Ella off to everyone. Here is Logan with Ella...He's the youngest of the 3 and a Sr. at Appalachian State University.
