Better late then never, as the old saying goes, right?

This year, we packed ourselves up and headed to Atlanta to visit Spencer's sister and her family. Spencer's dad, brother, and other sister flew from Manhattan and met us there as well. It was great to introduce Eliana to her aunt and uncle, as well as her cousins that she had never met. I was able to meet up with a few friends while we were there as well, one of whom I have known since she was a freshman in high school and I was her Young Life leader.

While the weather didn't fully cooperate for a lot of outdoor activities, we spent some time playing board games, going to the aquarium, and just being together. Admittedly, I was a little nervous about flying with a baby for the first time. All in all, Ellie did a great job... and even getting through security at the airport during one of the busiest travel weekends of the year proved to be pretty easy!

Enjoy a few highlights from our trip...

Stacey- So glad your first flight went well! Did you feel the "please don't sit by me" stares as you walked with Ellie down the aisle to find a seat:) Love the pic of her big eyes looking at the fish!

Ellie's hair is just amazing. My little girl is 8 months and is this close to bald. Glad to hear your Thanksgiving went fairly well. God bless!

Linda said...

Eliana is so beautiful...especially her eyes!

I am glad she did well on the flight, and that you got to introduce her to your family there. I am sure they loved her.

Sounds like you had a good Thanksgiving. So did we. There were 21 of us and I was a little tired from cooking, but they all brought stuff so that helped out!

Looking forward to about you?

Hop over to my blog and see my tree and decorations if you have time. (:>)
