Our little girl is not so little anymore. She just celebrated her third birthday! Time goes by way too fast. It has been so much fun having, loving, and watching her become this sweet big girl. We can't wait to see her with her little sister in August.
That is right we get another beautiful little girl!
Here she is on her very first birthday, with her very proud (and tired) Daddy!
Here she is on her one year old birthday.
She just loved holding her cake and not eating it.
And, at her two years old birthday party.
So this year for her party we were so happy to be here in Utah and enjoy all our families company at her party. She loves to pretend she is a dog all the time, not sometimes, but all the time! So naturally we thought of a puppy party.
It was a blast and she looked so cute. (As did all the kids.)
So enjoy the photos!
That morning for her gift from Mom and Dad, she finally got to go to Build-A-Bear.
Our sweet little birthday puppy!
Everyone got to wear puppy ears and decorate their own dog collars and tags,
play in Elle's dog house,
and get a balloon animal from Elle's amazing balloon artist, Grandpa!
This is just one of my favorite pictures from the party. Elle's best friend, Chloe, loved eating the refreshments (that were served in dog bowls) like a real dog.
It was hilarious!
Elle blowing out her candles. She did it so delicately, one candle at a time.
Opening all her amazing gifts. She loves them all. Thank you all so much.
One BIG puppy family!
Thank you all for coming and sharing Elle's special day with us. It really meant a lot to have almost all the people we love there!
One little puppy family!
For those of you who don't know we are now living in Vernal for the next few months. Nate is working for his brother in law until he goes to Oklahoma for training. It has been so fun living with Lisa and Kimball. Elle is having a ball with her cousins Ashley and Ruby too!
So we did our little family birthday here.
Blowing out her candles, again. I think if we sang the Birthday song to her everyday she would be so happy!
Luckily, I have two of her grandma's on my voicemail singing to her. She loves listening to them.
Of course the best part, licking the frosting off the ends of the candles!
Happy Birthday our sweet little Elle, we love you to pieces!!
