Who said the "von" didn't indicate royalty?

So, Daddy told me that not so long ago, Grandpa went on a fact-finding mission to discover whether there was any royalty in the von Wahlde family, since the "von" could possibly mean royalty. Well, as it turns out, in German, the "von" in our name just means "from." As in, "from Wahlde." Doesn't mean a girl can't dream.

What's Ella Wearing?

Everyone knows I am the coolest-dressed kid around...but even I have some fashion "don't" days! Here is an eclectic collection of some of my hits and misses from the last few months. You decide which is a definite "DO" and which is a please "DON'T"!
To begin, here are a few of my "Sunny Day" looks (always gotta protect those peepers!):
(hmm...there is something missing here...)
And I only have one "Rainy Day" look, but luckily for me Uncle Joe & Auntie May bought me this great ensemble so that I would be prepared!
(shoes from Auntie Amy & Truffle)
The following are some of my "special occasion" looks:
One of the first things I learned about fashion from Mimi is the importance of the shoe.
I hope I have a pair like these for myself one day.
Bronze gladiator sandals were really big this year.This was my first flower girl dress...I am getting to be a flower girl again this coming Fall!
This is one of my favorite looks. Eclectic mix 'n match style is going to be in my future, I think!...And last but not least, here are some of my cold-weather looks:

It was Better than Twelve Days of Christmas

Well, Christmas started early for me this year when everyone started sending me presents around St. Nicholas' Day and then didn't stop sending them until the day we left for Chicago, where I got even MORE presents! But, Mommy & Daddy taught me about the real reason for Christmas, which isn't the presents, but all the time I got to spend with family and friends...and Rudolph...and Baby Jesus, of course.
