A little early...

Ellie will be 5 years old the first week of Sept. I can't believe it. Truly, time has flown by. She is such a smart, fun loving, caring, independent, loving, sweet little girl. I am very lucky to be her mom. I decided to allow her to have a "girl" party. She has never had a girlie birthday party, and I wanted it done with before I head back to work. So, this past week, we had Ellie's 5th birthday party with 5 of her closest friends from church and school. It was a great afternoon.
Ellie was so excited. She could not wait for her friends to arrive. You can tell she is just about to burst!
So, while we were waiting, she would say to me, ", two, three...take my picture." Every time she was waiting for me with a new face. As I said, she was WOUND up! Pic #1 above.

and #2

#3....she cracks me up.

#4...where does she get this from????

lovely #5. Oh, Ellie.

Thank goodness the girls arrived. I don't think I could have taken pose #6 and beyond. I was laughing too hard! We made crafts and the girls were so good. It was so nice to have them all at our house. (and thanks Becky for staying to help!!!!!!)

Happy 5th birthday, Ellie.

We love you to the moon and back....always.

What a cute party! Looks like a fun time for the girls.
As far as getting together, I think that would be a blast to get everyone together. Let me know a good time once you settle in to the school year.

Happy Birthday Ellie! How can it be? Nearly 5? You know, Ella's not far behind. It's such a big deal!

Will she start kindergarten? We still have another year at home, which is fine with me, although I think she's ready . . .

Hello, and welcome to my page! I am so glad you are here. I am going to try and show you the average life of a 5 year old from my perspective. Mommy and Daddy will help me along the way if I get stuck.

Let me first introduce my family to you. I am Ellie. I am a 6 year old. I live in Ohio with my Mommy, Daddy, little brother Reid, and dog, Sophie. My mommy is a teacher. She teaches nine and ten year olds and loves it. She has been teaching for twelve years. My daddy works with computers. He works hard everyday.

We all love spending time together. I have wonderful grandparents and a terrific extended family. I am a very lucky girl. Thank you for visiting my page. Write to me any time. I love getting mail!!!

Many blessing to you all.
