I think this is my favorite photo of Eleanor I've ever taken. She was laughing hysterically at me shaking a plastic bag...
She had her 1st Santa encounter at my parents church Christmas party. She wouldn't sit on Santa's lap, but she ask for 2 of his candy canes. They got all over her shirt- and she loved it.
Our photographer friend Mari took this photo- and probably edited it to make it look better than it was- it was in the tunnel of lights at the Hogle Zoo. I would not recommend the zoo lights. They aren't that cool and it's too cold for that nonsense.
I was going through old photos and I hope you'll indulge me in sharing. The memories are so nice!
I took this from a double decker bus when I was in London on Study Abroad in 2011. I think all the flags were up because of Will and Kate's wedding festivities! London is just so historic and cozy. I think the study abroad was one of the highlights of college.
All the crowds from Will and Kate's wedding. I think this is the road up to Buckingham Palace.
This is just from this past Halloween- but look at the ballerina's little yawn!! What's crazy to me... look how different Eleanor looks above than below at around 4-5 months- like a different person with a whole new head of hair.
This was her response after her first taste of solid food- pureed apples.
From when Deanna and I went to the Paris Opera Ballet! I remember thinking it was so cool and unusual because during intermission, they had this ballroom couple dancing around the lobby all dramatic- like a little performance while you were waiting. I've never seen anything like that before during intermission!
The gardens at the Palace of Versailles. It was too expensive to go inside, so we just walked around instead. I wonder how similar the grounds looked back in King Louis' time. Also- I think I'm going to grow my hair out- because of this photo.
