Birthday Party Fun!

We had a great time celebrating Eliana's birthday on Saturday with eight friends. We were able to have cake and ice cream and open presents outside under the pavilion behind our apartment building. Then we took the kids to the play place in our building. It was a great way to entertain everyone and they all had a blast! Thankful for friends to celebrate with!

Happy 6th Birthday Eliana!

What??? Eliana is six??? How did this happen??? What a beautiful, fun six-year-old we have in our house and we had a very fun day celebrating! We'll have her party on Saturday but we celebrated at home on Tuesday. She got to open presents from us in the morning (some clothes and a set of Legos) and then she went to school. I took cupcakes and the kids sang for her. It was really cute! 

For dinner Eliana asked for corndogs and it was a good thing, but we had unexpected guests show up right at dinner time! My old babysitter came by with her three kids and we ended up feeding everyone. Fortunately Eliana LOVES having guests so she took it in stride and had a great time. I was a bit more stressed, but it worked out well and Drew was awesome helping me. He did cook the corndogs and wash the dishes after all!

She was also able to open up gifts with most of our family during the evening so as well so it was a fun day all around. She is a blessed girl! We're excited to party on Saturday!
