Catching up... starting with Ellie's birthday



I find that once I get away from blogging, it is so hard to get back into a routine. The same with everything in life, I suppose. So, I'll go in order, starting in January...

Firstly, I can't believe our girl is FOUR! Time flies and I think our busy year made it fly even faster. Here is a picture from LAST year...



Ellie's 4th Birthday brought on a big weekend of fun! We started off with taking her to Disney (thank you, Jen) the day before her birthday. We decided to make it a Daddy, Mommy, and Ellie day! Grammie watched Ava and Claire, so that we could spend some special time with Ellie. We didn't tell her where we were going, so it was a huge surprise for her. We had a great day! We went to Animal KIngdom and Magic Kingdom. The highlight for Ellie was getting to meet the princesses. Here is a conversation with Cinderella "herself".

On Saturday (her birthday), we had a family grill out at the park. She enjoyed celebrating with Papaw, Grammie, Poppa, Nana, Uncle Brett, Aunt Jenny, Aaron, and AJ. Here are a couple of pictures....

Here is a video of her remembering to change her age to 4...

Ellie had ballet the Monday after her birthday. They do a little birthday song for the each girls' birthday. She was so excited for her turn! I forgot the camera, but I had the flip with me :-) That will have to wait for another day, I can't get it to come up.... I know, so sad :-)

Pray for Veiyah

I came across the Karg family blog through another blog I have been following. This family has already lost one baby, (Veiyah's twin) before she was born. Their little girl, Veiyah, was born with heart complications and other problems. She is in very critical condition. You can check out her momma's blog through the link below.




I'll be back to blogging soon. I just wanted to get this request for prayer out!
