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 :-)
