Ella's 1st Birthday Party!!

Wow...what a weekend!!! Ella's birthday party was perfect in every way! She was in a great mood, was so attentive to each present being opened and she loved her first birthday cake. From the decorations, to the food, to our wonderful friends and family that came, everything was better than I had imagined in my head the weeks leading up to it. We had so much fun!! And I didn't cry once! By the time her birthday got here, I had totally accepted that I now have a one year old.

I have about 200 pictures from the party, so I attempted to post only my favorites, which really is an impossible task. But it was such a wonderful day, crazy, but wonderful!

Thursday

This was Ella's actual birthday, so we had a little party for her just our little family.
