We celebrated, and celebrated and celebrated. We had a party suited for Ella with her many friends at PLAY BOUTIQUE .
On her actual birthday we began the day with one present and a party hat. The party hat was a bit of a struggle, but the present was a hit.
Over the course of the year Ella has become more interested in baby dolls, so we gave her a ridiculous assortment of baby doll supplies complete with diapers, powder, bottles, and a potty. It was a big hit.
For dinner we celebrated at The Spaghetti Factory where Ella basked in the glory. Of course I insisted she wear her birthday hat, and she did happily for .8 seconds.
Then silly Ella made her appearance. That was the end of the birthday hat. Oh well, I managed to get a handful of hat wearing pictures between her party, breakfast, and dinner. Well worth the expense in my book.
The hit of her birthday was her Dora cake. Although it looked fabulous, it was quite disappointing. This is when I miss Carvel the most. Baskin Robbins, at least our branch, does not offer cookie crunch. #disappointing
Of course, Ella had to have Diego, Boots, and Dora on her slice.
Happiest birthday, Missy Moo!
I can't believe you are THREE.
