We finally found...

Panda Express!!!!!
Elliott has been craving orange chicken since we left California 8 months ago. He loves Panda Express orange chicken and no substitutions will do. On our way home from Virginia, we hunted one down in Frederick, Maryland and Elliott was a happy man.

Luckily it is only 8 miles off our route to Aunt Tatia's, so we have a new break spot for the drive. :)

New Job

After 6 weeks of scary unemplyment, Elliott found a job he LOVES!!!!!

He was out at an interview and took a wrong turn on hi way home. He drove past a pretzel warehouse and had a strong feeling to stop and drop off his resume. Not knowing if they were even hiring, and only having one resume left he kept driving. As he continued down the road he felt the urge again to turnaround and go into this pretzel warehouse. So he followed the prompting and within a week, he had been called in for a few interviews and hired!!!
He started a little over a week ago and is really enjoying all that he is learning. We are so blessed that Elliott found this job. It is perfect for him in many ways.

Happy little Helper

New Holland Fair

Back in September we took Ella to a fair in the little town of New Holland. She LOVED it! I almost forgot these pictures were on my camera until I found them the other day. She had such a good time. I am so grateful for these cute pics that capture such a fun memory for her.

First Snowman / First Sledding

First Snow

Snow fall came early this year. On Saturday October 29 the snow came. Elliott and I were gone at a church obligation. Luckily Tatia was at home with Ella and took her out to enjoy the first bits of snow fall. She LOVED it!!!

Happy Halloween

This year Ella was Rapunzel from the Tangled movie. Thanks to Aunt Tatia for the amazing dress. Ella LOVED trick-or-treating this year. She really got into her character too. She truly thought she was the Tangled princess all night. She would prance up to each door, say trick-or-treat I am Princess Tangled. Everyone loved her. It was pretty cute.
