My Baby's Birthday!

Happy Birthday to our baby - ELLIE!!! August 5th is Ellie's 3rd Birthday!
Ho Hum! A little bored prior to the party getting started.

Here's the party gang...after the presents were opened - Ellie received an Aqua Doodle (you can doodle, I can doodle everybody AQUA DOODLES!), a doodle pro (obviously she likes to doodle! We're hoping she doodles on these rather than doodling on Mama's walls, refrigerator, hard wood floors (!), her play kitchen, her baby dolls...) and then she received four Littlest Pet Shop Play pack deals to go with her Petshop Town. Katie has Petshops too so Mama had to "tattoo" the bottom of the newest Ellie Pets with an "E".

Here we (her brothers and sister) are trying to get her to NOT blow out the candle until we got Happy Birthday sung properly...we wanted all wishes to come true you know!

After three run throughs of a rousing "Happy Birthday Song" without any blowing candles out until the end (thanks to the help of her brothers and sister) - Ellie got down to some serious candle blowing. (Notice the boys mouths and concentration...LOL!)

Dearest Ellie, Mama and Daddy's little princess...she's growing so fast! She tells me she doesn't want to go to preschool, she wants to stay with Mama! I ask her if she's going to the Prom? She says, "no she's staying with Mama". I ask her is she going to go to college? She says, "no she's staying with Mama." Ahhhh....if only they would stay with Mama. She's been really (besides Katie until she was 2 years old)...My only "baby" that I've raised without other babies. Katie and the boys were always one big "gang" of elbows and arms....Ellie has been spoiled and pampered from day one! She is the princess and we bow to her expectations. But in reality...she is a joy! Sweet tempered and cute....God sure knew what he was doing when he sent her to live with us! And I thank Him for that for He sure blessed us mightily!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ELLIE!!!! ~ WE LOVE YOU!

  14. Vonna,

    Wow, it's hard to believe how much Ellie has grown over the past year. It looks like she's started off year number three with quite a bang.

    The entire family looks great! I hope you all enjoy your last few days of summer vacation.

  44. Happy (belated) Birthday to Ellie!!

    We're a doodling bunch at our house too...1 AquaDoodle, 2 full size DoodlePro's, and several smaller DoodlePro's for the car, Grammie's car, etc. Even The Little Tot (21 months old) *must* have her DoodlePro in the car.

    And we also have enough Little Pets to start a toy shop. The Tot is crazy about them.

    My daughter is also getting one of those Doodle boards. She also loves to doodle on the tablecloth, benchtop and anywhere else inappropriate.
