Happy Birthday Ella!

Ella is so wonderful in so many ways. She has a beautiful spirit which sometimes (ok, lots of times) I don't appreciate as I should. Spirited is the BEST word to describe her. I can't believe she is 6 years old today. Frustration, laughs and tears - I can't think of any better way to have spent the last 6 years. Here are just a few things that make Ella, well - Ella. I love you Ella!! Thank you for being who you are.

She is always up for a challenge.
She never meets a stranger.
She is fabulous at cracking eggs.
She NEVER forgets - anything.
She is great at Rock Band.
She loves to learn.
She is always entertaining - in oh so many ways.
She is more than mildly independent.
She makes everyone think!
She loves accessories - and dresses.
She has a great way of posing for pictures
and a beautiful smile!

I thought I had the tradition of putting candles in their breakfast. However, I must have slipped on year two because I can only find cake...oh well, you get the pun intended!

Here are some more pictures of the big day!

I really needed a good cry; thanks, Amy. I can't believe Ella Bean is six years old. You know we love her like our own. Tell her that she was thought of today!

Yeah, I am going to have to change the song AND get a new post so I can pull this up without crying myself...I have cried EVERY time I pulled it up!

It is so sad to see how much they grow and so fast! We hate that we missed the party.
