Ella is SIX

It is hard to believe that Ella turned SIX today.  As many wise women have said to me over the years, the days may be long, but they years go by quickly.  It is so true.

We started off the morning with one present and a pancake breakfast.  We always let the kids pick what they'd like for breakfast, dinner and their birthday dessert.  

Whole wheat banana pancakes (our family favorite) with ALL THE toppings: bananas, strawberries, blueberries, pecans, chocolate chips, sprinkles & marshmallows. 

The stable with horses was a HUGE hit!

Jake & I were able to have lunch with Ella, at school.

After our spaghetti and meatball dinner (Ella's pick), we opened the rest of the presents.

The birthday dessert of choice - strawberry ice cream in a cone.

HAPPY 6th BIRTHDAY to our sweet caring thoughtful Ella!
