2nd Birthday!!!

Let me preface this post by saying that we have had the best two years and there have been so many fond memories already. We look forward to all the things yet to come and we are so proud of our little girl on her second birthday!

Sunday we celebrated Ella's birthday with many friends and family at Oma and Opa's house. We got very lucky that the clouds parted, the sun appeared and the rain stopped 5 minutes before the party was about to start. Thank you to everyone who came and made her special day so great. She was in a wonderful mood (though still an opinionated 2 year old) and she spent a lot of time with all of her friends.

Here is the one family shot that Shelley (thank you) was able to capture:

Ella enjoying her Dora cake:

Ella in the Dora jumpy house with Aaron and Nicole (and Matt standing outside):

And Ella reading her Elmo card. This was pretty much the face she made at every gift:

An extra big thank you to Lori, Matt and Ellie for making the trip down from Wisconsin to celebrate with Ella. Happy Birthday Ellie :)
