All About Ella

The countdown begins today.  We're one week out from Ella's birthday and her birthday party (since they're both conveniently falling on Labor Day this year).  We have a busy week of party-planning ahead of us, as well as the normal round of work, school, and a few other things.  A busy week indeed. 

Here are a few links to Ella's past birthday memories to get us in the party spirit.

Last year our theme had KJ donning a kilt.  This year, it will be a tuxedo as he takes on the role of butler at our Samantha tea party.  I'm not sure how our party-planning spiraled into dressing up, but I'm afraid it's going to be a tradition from now on.  I like KJ in a tux so I won't be complaining.

My costume as cook won't be nearly as elegant, but next Monday is sure to be a lot of fun. It was also a lot of fun trying to recreate the old book cover emblem by taking a picture of Ella's silhouette.  Look like Samantha?
