E Turned One!

I am about a month late, but Miss Ellie had a birthday! The year has really flown by and she's been an absolute joy in every stage.














We celebrated by going to Sea World that day and we had a garden-themed birthday that evening. Pizza is her favorite food (already)!

The missionaries joined us.

Everybody blow!

And here's a sampling of some of the many cake pictures we snapped...

Then her tray suddenly crashed to the floor and the magic was over.

Opening her 2 presents...

This little lady has a lot of spunk. Sometimes she'll "bust a 'tude." She has even begun giving these hilarious looks which I haven't caught on camera yet. They are of high-quality, though (like Noah's crusties).

This was they day she came home with a blue paw because of all the tests and immunizations she was put through at the hospital. She handled it very well and did not get frustrated when she had use of only one hand.

She pretty much knows she's in charge around here. But don't tell her brothers that; they're both sure she's in their care!

They are just ninos trying to release their wiggles

Laurel got a new haircut

Happy feet

Happy eyes

Our kids are always doing their own thing

Who doesn't like a wheelbarrow ride on Easter?

The grass is not as comfortable as she would like

They say it says in the Bible not to wrestle your neighbor, but we haven't found that part yet.
