Ella's 3rd Birthday-Part 2

Ella's birthday was on Thursday (Jan. 31st), so we woke her up with some birthday balloons and a song!  She was smiling from ear to ear and said "wow! thank you!"  Such a sweet little angel!

Yes, my sweet girl is still sleeping in a crib at 3!  She's never attempted to get out, so we are going to just leave here there until it's a problem or she hits kinder; whichever comes first :)

We fixed Ella a special birthday breakfast of pancakes & eggs and opened a couple presents before Daddy headed off to work.

Then I got to spend the whole day with my sweet birthday girl!  We played at the house for a few hours before heading to Hoppin House for a playdate with our MOPS friends!  She insisted upon wearing her "party dress" since it was her birthday!  So of course, I washed it (since she wore it to her other party already) and had it ready to go for our playdate and her upcoming afternoon party :)

After nap, we headed over to our neighborhood park for a party with some more friends.  We decided to do another celebration since our princess tea party wasn't real appropriate for our boy friends (her preschool class is 8 boys and 2 girls including Ella).   Some of her friends from school and some other friends came to celebrate with us and we had an absolute blast!

We tried to get them all together for a pic, but didn't manage (missing a couple here)

Luke & Ella

 Cupcake Time!  She sang Happy Birthday with us which I thought was precious!

Time for a wish!

Couldn't wait to open Luke's pretty pink present!

Then we headed home to unwrap gifts with the family :) She got lots of girly thing and loved opening each one and then playing with took a while to get through them all which she was loving because it was pushing going to bed back further and further ;)

And sweet Aunt Shara & Uncle Aaron sent flowers to Ella because they couldn't be here to celebrate with us :(  She thought they were gorgeous!

We had such a special day together celebrating!  Hopefully we didn't set her up to think she needs multiple birthday celebrations every year :)  My little girl is 3 and I can't wait to see what this next year has in store for us!  I love you Ella Grace!!!
