Birthday Pics and a LO!

The birthday party was a rousing success. Ella was so excited about her Shrek party and purple presents. All day long I kept catching her trying to open them but I made her wait until Daddy came home. We had one of her favorite meals for dinner-pancakes and vienna sausages (sounds gross, tastes REALLY good!!) then we did the presents. She loved them all. The looks of joy on her face with each new present were classic! She wanted to play with them all right then and there. But again I made her wait until after the SHREK CAKE!! That is my favorite part of birthdays. I love making the cakes. (And eating them isn't too mad either!) She had a little trouble blowing out the candles but got them all in the end. We ate and Ella played with all her new toys. We even let her stay up late to watch her new Little Mermaid video. She just keeps saying "I love my Little Mermaid." It's so cute. Pictures of all this are below.

Opening Presents.

Eating the goods.

Alex was lovin' it too!

The aftermath. Poor Shrek.

Shrek family photo. (I couldn't resist buying these fun headbands!)

We had lots of fun and I'm sure Ella will remember this for a while yet.

And as if this post wasn't long enough I've got a LO to share too.

I used Bannerwoman's kit Unconditional available here at Digital Freebies.

Have you seen this contest at Snapfish? You can enter everyday and they give away random prizes!! Yesterday I won an 8 1/2x11 photo book! I'm going to use it for our Disney vacation album. I made 2 pages for it already. Only 38 more to go!! But they are quick pages so hopefully it will go fast.

I think this is long enough now. Have a good day!
