She woke up quickly this morning when she saw these goodies waiting for her on my bed :)
I got her an Elsa dress, tiara, and shoes - some theme-appropriate gear to wear to her Frozen b-day party this weekend :)
While I was getting ready for work (I had to leave early because I was presenting at staff trainings all day), Ellie put the tiara on my head and she drew a couple of pictures for me. She says that this one is me (wearing the tiara of course!)....
I kept it with the rest of my papers during the day :) I also got picture updates from Grandma Chery as she and Pa-Paw helped Ellie celebrate her special day while I was at work.
She got a new Elsa doll at the mall...
Had lunch and a yummy dessert at Red Robin...
And had a mani/pedi appointment :)
When we got home we had FaceTime with Nana so she could watch Ellie open the presents she sent. This was definitely Ellie's favorite - as she pulled it out she decared it "GORGEOUS" - lol.
We picked Faith up and then met Leila and family at Chuck E. Cheese for a special birthday dinner. One woman's nightmare is her child's dream come true ;)
The kids had a blast playing games and the grown-ups had some time to chat. It wasn't really all that bad. Ellie had a very good day and that's what matters most!
This girl makes me laugh every day - she brings me great joy, but also great frustration at times. She continues to have a strong personality, and she is also very sweet and loving. She loves to draw, color, and create. She loves play doh and doing hair, and she likes to watch youtube videos about both of those things. Ellie is very smart and independent, but often prefers to use baby talk and get someone else to do the things she doesn't want to. She wants to do everything that her brother is doing, and just learned how to ride a 2-wheel bike without training wheels. I love her very much and feel so blessed to be here to see what this next year brings!
