Picture time

Monday was picture day for Ana, where she took photos of her new home, including her bedroom, bathroom, and loft. She also likes to take self portraits.


Ana has never seen snow, so this was her first snow as seen from her bedroom window. I'm sure she'll get more than this before too long!

School girl

She enjoys a little bit of Princess Diaries

But of course, school had to start sometime. Her first day at St. Ed's began on Wednesday of the following week.
