You Gotta Roll with the Punches



Everything is ready for the big party.

The Food...


The Party Favors...


The Decorations...


A New Party Outfit...


And the ADORABLE cake my Mother-In-Law made...








Only one thing is missing...The Birthday Girl.

Sadly, we woke this morning to a sweet birthday girl throwing up. Heath and I waited a couple of hours to make sure it was a stomach bug. A few more throw ups later, we knew what we had to do. We both had our cell phones going calling everyone on the invite list to let them know the party is cancelled.

I was so bummed. I feel so bad for Ella. She was so excited about her party with her friends she loves so much!! Thankfully so far, she hasn't seemed to notice it didn't happen. And she is already feeling much better. We are laying on the couch watching our 3rd movie of the day.

We are going to make the best of this day though.

Sunni, Xavi, Clara and Ava came by for a few minutes so they could give Ella her present. They stayed outside so as not to contaminate the babies. It was so sweet of them and they brought the cutest wrapped present EVER with an adorable Dora Cash Register inside. Ella has already been playing with it.




I am thinking about rescheduling, but the problem is, our next available weekend is March 21st. Next weekend we have the Focus on Marriage Simulcast at our church and in two weeks I leave for Honduras. Is it weird to reschedule for an entire month out?

Ella is the just the sweetest girl. Even when she's sick and miserable she is so precious. I am so thankful she is mine. And we have such great friends & family!! Thanks y'all for being so flexible. We are sad we missed getting to see you today.

Oh NO! What a bummer. If she's feeling better tomorrow can you have immediate family over for that GORGEOUS cake? I hope Ella feels better soon. :(

Even though y'all had to forego the party, at least everything was absolutely adorable. Because sister, it was! I am so sad y'all had to cancel though.
