Happy 3rd Birthday!!

April 23rd was Ellie's birthday.  We had a large party for her back on April 11th and had 32 guests.  Since I don't have enough room indoors I set up the party out in our garage.  It worked well and Im thinking of having Elijah's out there to in May.  It was a crazy busy weekend and so I decided Haystacks would be an easy meal.  Thanks to who all helped bring toppings and fresh fruit salad.
Ellie adores Sofia the First and thus gave me a great party theme.  It never fails that she requests that movie every time we enter into the vehicle.  

 Eating her yummy haystack and fruit.  I also made a purple cow punch as the choice of beverage.
 We put Ellie and all her gifts on the steps in the garage so everyone could see her quite well.  She was cracking me up.....thrilled to open gifts then totally "show off" as she opened each gift.  Such a girl in SO MANY WAYS!!  Below she was flipping her hair around as she proceeded to put her new sunglasses onto her shirt and her purple headband into her hair.
 After gifts its always time for cake and ice cream.  She was pleased to pose with her princess cake.

                                            Ready set blow!!!
 Because of the number of guests we had I also made rose designed cupcakes.  It was my first time at making roses actually and I loved it.  Guess I know what I plan to do for her 4th birthday:).
Ellie Mae....oh how you light up our lives.  You are a true joy to have in the family.  We love your spunk and love the fun little things you do that make us laugh.  So very thankful to be your parents and look forward to what is in store for your life ahead.  We love you!!
