Ella's Brithday Weekend

On Friday before Ella's birthday, my mom and I took her to the American Girl Doll store in Atlanta.  She got to pick out a doll from her great grandpa.  She picked out the little girl that had brown hair, blue eyes, and a few freckles across her nose, just like her!!  She was just in hog heaven!

We then got to eat lunch in the little restaurant with her doll.  It was very neat! They have chairs for the dolls, and even bring the dolls "tea" to drink.  At the end, they sang Happy Birthday to her which was very special!!  It was a fun day! I just LoVe shopping in Atlanta. (eventhough I do not get to do it very often)

Ella's birthday party  was the next day. She decided to have a minnie mouse party this year.  I was good with that since we are going to Disney in just a few short weeks.  She invited all the kids from her small little class, a few good friends, and family.  It was a small and very fun party. All the kids had a great time playing pin the flower on minnie, breaking the pinata, and playing on the playground. We did it at the local Gazebo beside the park and it could not be any more perfect. The weather was absolutely perfect.  It could not have been a better day!!

Sweet Jameson!

Happy 5th Birthday Ella

My Dearest Ella,

I cannot believe that you are already 5.  I can still remember the day you were born like it was yesterday.  Your daddy and I always joke about that long drive to Macon everytime we go down that highway. I will never forget my first thought when I saw you for the first time!! I thought you were the prettiest thing I had ever seen, and still do!!
You are already in pre-k and you are doing so well.  I cannot believe that you are going to kindergarten next year. (that is if I let you go! HA!) I am amazed how quickly you are learning your sight words.  We just finished wee ball and you got to play on the pitcher's mound  and caught nearly ever ball that came your way.  You will even "share" a ball with your friends that you caught.  What a SwEeT girl you are.

You still are loving playing with your dolls and just got into polly pockets.  How you keep from losing all those little pieces, I do not know! :)

Your dad and I are just smitten with your personality! You are such a hoot and very quick witted.  You definitely did not get that from me.  I must say what a pretty little girl you are, and, for the most part, you have a sweet personality to go with it.  At times, we still have our hard-headedness....but I guess what child doesn't. 

We love you to the moon and back!!!  We are so glad that God chose us to be your parents. 

Mommy and Daddy
