Ella was petting Poly nicely.

 Ella tries to use electronics!
I think this escalator was at the mall. Ella liked escalators but I guess nothing else was picture worthy.

Ella got tired.
 Ella did this herself with her legs. f6

Ella wanted to wear her Halloween costume for days.

The table was a bit clean!


 It was raining so I put on boots. So Ella wanted to too.

Daddy saying by to Ella.
 Then I let Ella play in the puddles. She didn't have rain boots so we just wore her crocs.  The puddles were in the street so she had to hold my hand. That made it hard for pictures. I tried. You can't tell how happy she is!

Then we went in the backyard to play.

I'm pretty sure based on this Ella is wearing shoes but no clothes!

I guess Ella potty trains her doll and feeds her doll at the same time.

We ran the Tot Trot then the 5k. Ella had a blast!

She sure was tired on the way home.
Sometimes Ella amazes me with what she is willing to try to eat.

The highlight of the day was the race!


The scratching post is for standing on!
Dave made Ella an egg and tried to show her about dipping her toast in the yolk. She sure like that.

We put on Ella's cupcake costume and then headed to Lily's to hang out.

She didn't want to ride anymore and wanted to walk.

After playing outside they had to play inside.  We wanted a play date since in 2014, we went trick-or-treating in Los Altos together

She wouldn't stay put in her car. She wouldn't walk with me. I put her on my shoulders and pushed the car. She wasn't very kind to me.
 Here's a little collage comparing 2014 to 2015
Ella had a late nap so then we went trick or treating late.   We met up with  Kathryn and Jackie and went to a few houses with them. They were almost done and we were just getting started.

 Jackie was Katy Perry for Halloween. Ella's costume was actually one of Jackie's old ones.

We got home and had to go through Ella's candy while handing out candy of our own.

 Dave and Ella organized her candy before she picked what she wanted to eat.

Ella had an eventful 2015 with Halloween costumes. She wore 4 costumes on 5 occasions.
Reading before bed!

Another comparison between 2014 and 2015
