I'm working on a "Look Back at '08" post, but SO much happened (good and bad) that it is taking me a while. And I start daydreaming about what I'm recapping about and that adds to the delay of getting it done.

So, in my effort to procrastinate even further, I just thought I would post some pics I took of Ella the other day. I think I fall more and more in love with my camera everyday.

Yes, that is a piece of chocolate in her mouth, thus why she is smiling so big.

Notice how she is in a tank top. That's because it was 82 degrees on Saturday and 30 degrees on Sunday! And sleeting this morning as I drove to work. Crazy!

Also, I hope this doesn't distract you from the cuteness above, but I think I got bit by a spider Christmas Day because my arm swelled up, was hurting like crazy and was overall just gross. See for yourself.

And I'll be leaving you with that image.

The pictures of Ella are great!

Make sure you keep an eye on that spider bite. They can turn into something really bad. My aunt had a really bad bite and was in the hospital for was crazy! (It didn't look like yours, don't want to freak you out, but just keep an eye on it to be on the safe side)

Get that bite checked out...OK? Praying for no brown recluse!

And that Ella? Oh, she can hold an audience--beautiful little girlie!

Praying for you and that this year will weigh heavy on the good!

Yikes! And spider bites stay around for a long time!

Thanks! I'm from West Virginia so there's tons of stuff to take pictures of :) I've heard some great things about Redeeming Love, I'll have to put that on my list. I'm currently reading the Abram's Daughter's Series by Beverly Lewis. They may possibly be some of the most interesting books I've ever read.

God Bless,
Jessica :)

Those are fun pictures! And that just might be a spider bite. I had one too a couple of days before Christmas around my waist that hurt like crazy. It finally oozed out some nasty pus and was all better. That's a nice image too. =)

i am sorry about your spider bite, but it sure does not take away from the cuteness that is miss ella bella! I hope your arm gets better!

In many ways, the zune is better than the ipod, so you're good to go with a zune. Your spider bite looks nasty. youch.
I love when you play the keyboard in church, by the way!

I thouroughly enjoyed the pictures of Ella. Too cute!

And sister, that bite?? I sure hope you've gotten it checked out. One time I thought I had a spider bite and it was actually staph infection. Scary! Hope it's all okay!
