It's been a fun couple of weeks around here! We had some great company (thanks, grandmas & grandpa for coming to visit!), and one fun birthday party! We're just getting things back in order, so I'll finally get you a recap of Ella's birthday party...
[obviously] The table of yummy party food!
Yes, there was real food for the party. It was just in the fridge at this point.
[no food poisoning here.]
Cupcakes with swirled frosting and sprinkles!
The smash cake... pre-smash.
Not really sure about this... it sure doesn't look like my usual lunch.
[we maybe had a candle mishap. if you didn't witness it, don't ask. if you did witness it, shhh.]
It took her a while to decide, but she loves the cake!
Opening presents. She loved ripping the wrapping paper.
Playing with a singing & dancing dog from Mike's Grandma & Grandpa Dee
Taking a ride on her elephant from Grandpa Dave & Grandma Deb.
They really know how to pick out toys.. she loves this thing!
Taking her bubble-blowing mower for a test drive. Thanks, Keith & Kristi!
Basketball hoop.. totally not surprising that this was Mike's idea.
We have a ONE YEAR OLD!
Happy, Happy Birthday, Gabriella Marie! We love you!
