Happy 3rd Birthday, Miss Ellison!

Yesterday, our baby girl turned 3!

Incredible how fast three years can pass by!

Today it's all about the party!

We're having a backyard BBQ with our family, so we're keeping our fingers crossed that the sun actually shows up today! I'm hoping we can all be out on the deck and get some good use out of the new bench!

And the piece de resistance...

A Dora cake homemade by the carpenter!
Yep, he bakes too!
He makes the kids' cakes each time they have a birthday and they always turn out awesome! I'll have to share pics of past cakes.
He's good!

Off to start getting ready!
Lots of cooking and baking and cleaning and wrapping and decorating needs to happen today...
Better get moving!

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Happy Birthday Ellison! Makes me so sad that we are so far away - have a piece of Dora cake for us! We'll send some of our AZ sunshine your way also. Lots and lots of love.

Looks like we had the same kind of weekend, Karla!! although my husband does not bake cakes...nor will he have anything to do with Dora! Men..sheesh! Hope Ellison had a great birthday, she is a Q~T.
