Ella is our "growly little bear" so we gave her a teddy bear for Christmas. She makes this hilarious growling sound- usually when she's happy or when she'a concentrating really hard on something.
For our Christmas celebration at Papa and Nana's (Pete's parents), Nana had the kids act out the Christmas story as she read it. Kate was very reluctant to participate! She really just wanted to stay there on the couch by Auntie Laurie.
Somehow in the midst of it all Papa managed to take a nap!
