Pumpkin Patch

1 What are your thoughts?
Today Ellie and I went with our MOPS group to a "Pumpkin Patch," kind of place. There was a slide, and a kids hay maze, and a buggy ride? Ellie had a lot of fun! She did awesome walking on rocks and hay, she didn't even fall once!
Ellie is fearless, she loved going down the big kids slide all on her own! She would laugh and giggle the whole way down!
She also liked climbing on the hay. The Pumpkins came in handy to helped her get up.
"Mommy, I think this one is my favorite"
Still climbing!
We had so much fun! Ellie got to bring home a tiny little pumpkin.

Ellie's First Birthday

0 What are your thoughts?
Ellie's 1st Birthday was a lot of fun. We had a party for her and we invited her friends that are around the same age. We discovered that Ellie does not necessarily like to be around a lot of people, or at least she does not like to feel "crowded." There were a few times when we realized that Ellie was not around, and we would find her in a room by herself playing alone.
I decided to make cupcakes instead of a cake. I suppose it is called a "pull-apart" cake. Maybe next year she will be able to tell me what "theme" she wants for her cake and invitations.
"Mmm, this flower sure looks delicious mom"!
I did have to blow the candle for her.
This was Ellie's idea of enjoying her cupcake! We put it in front of her thinking she would "dig-in," and instead she looked at me and very clearly (in a baby kind of way of course) let me know that she had no intentions of getting dirty. At least she really enjoyed the cupcake!Ellie wore a dress that her daddy bought for her when he was in Mexico for a missions trip. She lloked so cute!
