If you wanna go and take a ride with me…

This morning we were on our way out to Dim Sum and we bumped into the Kim/Arena clan in the garage.  Justin and Julie gave Juliet an Escalade for Christmas!  The car drives 5 mph and Juliet is an amazing little driver.  When we walked into the garage, Juliet was backing the car up.  She saw Ella, got out of the car, opened the passenger door and said, “Come on, hop in Ella”.  Ella got in and off they went (the garage door was closed so they didn’t have too far to go).  The video at the end is a short clip of their joy ride.  Of course Ella wants to drive it and maybe she will be able to in the next week or so, but for now, Juliet is in the driver’s seat – literally.  The 5 of us went to Yank Sing for brunch and it was wonderful.  Later on in the afternoon, we went to the movies to see Gulliver’s Travels.  It was pretty stupid but Ella did laugh out loud a few times.  I’m just happy that we decided to see the regular version and saved some money on an unnecessary 3-D movie.  Tonight we had a delicious dinner at home and just relaxed and enjoyed each other.  At around 8, we went over to Stella and Juliet’s house to exchange Christmas gifts.  The girls were so beautiful together…they were self sufficient, no fighting, and the adults were actually able to have meaningful conversations.  The day and night were fantastic.  Tomorrow we go to see the Nutcracker.  Hope everyone had a great Christmas or some great Chinese food and saw some good movies.137.jpg Juliet taking Ella for a spin.216.jpg Ella and mommy having fun while grandma is just happy.312.jpg Grandma and Ella in front of the Christmas tree at Yank Sing.412.jpgGrandma, Ella and papa at the movies.510.jpgHelen and KJ, who really wanted to use his screwdriver on something.611.jpg The girls on their cool ride.
