Baptism...Pumpkin Patch....Rice Cereal !!

Ella officially became a child of God as she was baptized on October 5th. Grandparents made the trip from Jackson and Ella's God parents - Rob and Kathryn celebrated in the event. Ella also had friends and family take part in the ceremony - she is one loved baby! October 5th also marked DeeDee and Granddad's 40th wedding anniversary! They celebrated with a cheers with plastic champagne cups! What great role models for us all and a special day all around.

This past weekend with Rob and Kathryn we made our way to a pumpkin patch in Woodstock, GA. Ella even got her own pumpkin - we did not know until after making the trek with some large pumpkins we did not know they price by the pound, maybe just pictures there next year.
Ella also started rice cereal - it was a sight to see - we think she is just fond of any type of food or at this point anything she can get in her mouth. From toys to toes they all eventually find the way to her mouth. Enjoy the pictures!

Sip ' n ' See

In true Southern tradition (yes, the Yankees have adopted well in South) Ella had a Sip N See held in Jackson a few weekends ago. The party was at the Metzner house and friends (all the way from Texas) and family (all the way from St. Louis) were invited to "sip" wine (or tea) and "see" Ella. She did great!
Ella's first trip to Jackson was a first in many ways - first airplane ride where she slept the entire hour on both legs of the trip - first swimming lesson - first time to meet all of her little friends in Jackson - and the list could go on.
We have another big weekend coming up where she will be baptized this Sunday so stay tuned.
