Ella's 6th Birthday Party

We survived another birthday party! It really wasn't too bad. A couple of the girls couldn't make it, but the rest all had a good time. I'm really glad it's all over with.

Here are the little bug cakes.

They turned out really cute and I can't wait to make more!

We played games and opened presents. The girls got to play up in Ella's room for a bit too. (I planned the party for a little too long.)

The kids got their pictures taken Friday morning and they turned out so great! I'm so excited! It's been so long since I've gotten a really good picture of them together at a photo shoot. I took these before we left.

Nana is coming over tonight to watch the kids while Zan and I go out for dinner. It' my birthday tomorrow!! The big 35. Yikes!! What do you do?

Ella's birthday is Wednesday and we're going out for lunch with Nana (while my car is getting serviced). Then we'll be heading to grandma and grandpa's. Hopefully the weather will cooperate with us.

Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you. Looked and sounded like a great birthday party. We really liked the bug cakes. Boy did they look awesome when I enlarged the picture. Anxious to hear Ella's take on the party. The pictures were great. Ella looked so sweet and Sammy looked like a real cut up. Also they both looked great. You and Zan went out Sunday nite wonderful that you can do that. FYI 35 was one of my favorites.
