Ella had a wonderful first birthday party! Friends and family celebrated in the event - we had a house full! She started the day in her nice birthday dress but ended the day in her tutu and covered in frosting. She did a great job on her "smash cake" and really went to town, David had issues with Ella having that much frosting and sugar, but Malia a fan of frosting herself, was proud of her little girl! Ella finished the day unwrapping present after present from our more than generous family and friends. One of her favorites - was the scooter - one of her least favorites - Elmo. We won't tell her that her grandparents gave her a toy that made her cry :) She is showing more interest though. We have been so blessed this past year to have a healthy and sweet wonderful girl, we are excited about this year and can't imagine how it could be any more fun!
