Happy Birthday Ellie!!

My cute little Ellie finally turned 4!! She has been talking about being four since she turned three. She is growing up so fast. I was going through all of her pictures the other day and I can't believe how these last four years have zoomed on by. She is so much fun. She is my little drama girl. She loves to dance and sing and make her little brother scream. It is her new found goal in life to make him mad. If he is sitting being happy she has a remedy for that. She is our little one liner girl. The other day we were all in the car and Ryan and I were having a discussion-ok more than a discussion we were a little upset. After a few minutes of listening to us "discuss" from the back seat of the car Ellie said "Oh shuuut uuup!" It was classic. That is a bad word in our house but it was much too funny to do anything but laugh. That is our Ellie, always keeping us on our toes with her wit.

We had a fabulous birthday. We invited Ellies friends and cousins to the pumpkin patch where the kids played in the maze and climbed on the tractors and got to pick out a pumpkin. Ellie had so much fun she did not want to leave. I love that her birthday is in the Halloween season. It is my favorite holiday, hopefully when she is older she will let me do a haunted house for her party.

The Birthday Girl!

The Party Gang. I don't think that is everyone that came to the pumpkin patch, kids kept jumping in and out of the picture.

Sisters, sisters, there were never such devoted sisters.

An impromptu bowling session while Ryan had to run to work for a minute.

Birthday girl and birthday cake. That cake took me 4+ hours to make and 5 minutes to destroy.

We love you Ellie belly. I am so glad I had you!!!

I remember visiting you right after you had Ellie! Time sure flies. As always your kids are adorable. I want to know how long they've had those cool slider things to help kids bowl..that's awesome! That would solve so many 'little kids bowling' problems.
