Ellie's birthday is January 9th and now she's 3! It's hard to believe that much time has gone by since she was born. She decided she wanted a "castle party", so that's what she got! I think this balloon was her favorite part of the whole event.
Ellie loves pizza, so we had everyone make their own pizza on a pita. They got to choose whatever toppings they wanted. Of course most of the kids just wanted cheese! Here are Aubrie and Joshua enjoying their pizza.
What's a castle party without a castle cake?! Joshua helped me decorate it.
Ellie also picked out her own candles and Cim decided to put the whole package on the cake instead of only 3.
Blowing out the candles!
Then it was present time.
Big hugs for Grandma Tomsik's present!
More presents that she had plenty of help opening. You'd think the kids would be all burned out of opening presents after Christmas. Apparently not!
She was so excited about her Kai-Lan and Princess and the Frog shirts! She obviously hadn't washed her face yet after eating her pizza! Happy Birthday Ellie!
