ellen loves to read books. we are currently going through "the 12 days of christmas" about 3 times a day. she likes to sing along. ellen and i sing everything but "and a partridge in a pear tree." that is mommy's line and i think she is getting a little sick of jumping in on her parts. ellen's favorite part is "fiiiiiiiive goooooooold riiiiiiiiiiiiiiinnnnngs."
