Yes, so anyone that knows Ella, or who has talked to her in the last two months knows that she wanted to have a PRINCESS party for her birthday. Dave's family wasn't originally sure that they could stay for Ella's party on Memorial Day, so they had her open the presents from them while we were at the cabin. She got a fairy night gown, little mermaid flip-flops, a couple very cute outfits, some books, and her homemade Cinderella sleeping bag. (which she absolutely loves) Later that night Jen helped Ella make a crown for herself, and princess hats for all the girls that were coming to her party. Ella had so much fun!! It was great!! (Thank you to Jen for always being so creative!)
So, for Ella's party the girls all wore their princess hats (for as long as they could stand) and we had Disney Princess plates, cups, napkins, etc. THIS is Ella's PRINCESS CAKE!!! Besides the fact that I ran a little short on time completing it, it turned out really well. I think Ella really liked it, which is the best part of making any cake. Especially when it is your own kid!! Ella did such a good job blowing out her candles, until... ok so we accidently put a trick candle on her cake. She blew and blew, and then all the other kids blew and blew, and finally we just had to put it out.
Ella got some really fun princess things from all of her friends and family. THANK YOU to all of you that came, it was a lot of fun!! (I'm sorry that I didn't list everything that she got, I have a hard time remembering in my old age....)
