Happy 3rd Birthday Eliana!

New Year's Eve and Eliana's birthday go hand in hand so we are bound to have a party every year!!! This year we had a small party with our family and a few friends! Ellie was so excited about her Dora cake!! (little does she know that I just bought a cake and cut out one of the card board birthday hats with dora on it. I usally make my own cake and do that but couldn't this year.) I thought it turned out cute for fast planning! Anyway here are some pics from her special day.....

Here are the kids getting ready to sing Happy Birthday!

Somebody made her laugh and I just had to capture the moment!!!
She seemed a little embarrassed when everyone started singing.....
But she sure did enjoy her cake !!!
So did Samuel!!
Mommy and Daddy got her a Barbie tricycle this year....Daddy for got to hide it before Ellie came hom and she found it sitting in the play room. She said "Look...a big bike for me!" Oh well!
Here she is digging into the rest of her presents.....
The boys gave her a black baby doll which is her favorite ....she named her Miracle after one of her little friends at church.....SO cute!

She got a water baby from one of our good feels pretty's kind of neat.

She also got her own princess chair with a sleeping bag is so cute!

Ellie had a wonderful Birthday and we had a wonderful new years! When the kids went to bed we got to celebrate it with friends! Always nice....!

Seems like it would have been more fun to celebrate without the friends after the kids went to bed... if you know what I mean. ;) Just playing. That's what I thought you were going to say when you said the kids went to bed. Hey, we all do it, right?! :) Cute pictures and happy birthday to Ellie!

How adorable! It looks like she was so happy with her birthday!! For Caylin's 2nd birthday we did Strawberry Shortcake. I made a strawberry cake and cut out a picture of Strawberry Shortcake from a shoe box for the decoration... you made me think of it when you said you got dora off of a party hat! Smart thinking!

I can't believe how much hair Ellie has gotten! It's really grown alot since we saw her last! And such dorable pictures of her!
