Ella's 3rd Birthday Party!!

Last month, Ella turned 3, and as you all know, on the morning of her big birthday party she woke up with a stomach bug. It was so sad. We had to call all of her friends and cancel.

So, we rescheduled the party for this morning and it was wonderful!!! We had a great time!

Ella & Laney!

Little Gabe and Jacob! They are barely 1 year old, but were able to figure out how to climb half way up. I was amazed.

Sweet Ava!

I loved this moment. When Titus got to the party, he was so excited to give Ella her gift he ran up the playground chasing Ella with the present! It was so cute.

Silly Daddy.

Jared at the top with the kids!

He so sweetly slid down with Ella.

The bottom of the slide was often the gathering place for all the kids!

Me & Laney!

The My Little Pony cake my Mother-on-law made for the party last month was froze for the party this month. Thankfully, it unfroze perfectly! It still looked and tasted great!

I love how kids always want to help the birthday kid open their presents!

Ella so excited about her presents!!

The pic of you and Ella in front of the table and capri sun was the BEST picture!! It made me exclaim and smile!

So glad you are back and rested and that your girl had a wonderful birthday party. I surely was praying for you.

Tell Ella that Sydney said HI! She likes to look at Ella's picture and say her name.
