Ellie Is 3

It's hard for me to believe that my firstborn is already 3! Ellie is my delight and my joyful child. She's rarely down-in-the-dumps, but instead, she's very resistant. I love Ellie so much and I rejoice that God has blessed Riley and I with a beautiful firstborn girl. She's helps to mother her baby sister and she reaches out to other kids in a welcoming way. I admire Ellie's social skills and the way she verbalizes herself.
We had a few of her closest friends over tonight for a casual Super-Readers Birthday Party. I sewed capes for all the kiddos, and while it was a bit chaotic, the kids had a blast running around, opening presents, and eating lots of sugar! Ellie decorated her birthday cake all by herself this year and it was fun watching her pride in her piece of art.
Thanks to all for your cards, phone calls, gifts and Birthday greetings today. Ellie had a FUN day!

Yay!! Happy birthday, Ellie! I thought of her and us counting down the days before we welcomed our babies into the world 3 years ago. :) Love the Super Why capes!! Cullen loves that show too. Wish we could've been there to celebrate with you!!
