Ella and the Nutracker at the Ritz Carlton

On Monday afternoon, Ella and a friend of hers, and the two mums of course, went to a fancy afternoon tea and performance of the Nutcracker Ballet at the Ritz Carlton.

It was great... she loved it, and thought the ballerinas were magical princesses. She got a nutcracker of her very own, and she calls it my 'soldier'.

She sat up sipping hot chocolate from a china cup and was a very good girl.

We are going to make it an annual event.

Ella and the Christmas Reindeer

Ella went to a party this afternoon, and had to pose in front of the reindeer in the front yard. She always wears her leopard skin coat to such events.

Ethan Formula 1 Training

Ethan seems to be taking to cars very early. He set a new lap time across the loungeroom this afternoon and will be working on his form in the coming season.

First Snow

The first snow came early this year! First week of December and we have already had 5 inches. They are predicting lots this year, and although Ella loves it, that driveway seems awfully long when you have to shovel it!
