Birthday Girl

Ellen turned 3 yesterday.
Words cannot express how much I adore my brown-eyed girl.
We all do.IMG_9102One of my favorite memories from her first day was introducing her to her big brother.
They’ve been best friends ever since. IMG_77991st birthday.IMG_0012IMG_9906IMG_9994IMG_9572Photos taken in Great Grandma’s house, and some in a friend’s little schoolhouse.IMG_05222nd birthday. Chiang Mai, Thailand. This cake was not as good as it looked. Icing made out of plain unsalted butter.IMG_0656 copyIMG_0885 IMG_0994She’s so proud to be 3 now. It sounds so much bigger than 2, you know. The other day she was playing with her little Lego people and she had them lined up against the wall. The one little Lego person said to the other as he was pulling away in his car, “Bye, neighbor….. See you tomorrow. Sleep good!” Loved hearing her dialogue with her little people in a sing-song voice.IMG_8828 copy3 year photos in an orange grove close to my parents house in Florida.

    Happy Birthday, Ellen! Nice pictures- I should’ve taken Thatcher’s 2 year pictures in Florida, would’ve been nicer than around here!

  2. Hey there! Still remember me? lol Love looking at your beautiful photography and adorable kids! I was scrolling down at Ellen’s pix, and my 3 y.o. Madison said, “me like her”. Then I got to the next pic. “Me like her too. ” Now she wants the purple outfit like she had on. lol Really like that verse you had at the end. Blessings!

    • It would be great to see you again, Elsa. Our girls must be close in age, I think this toddler stage is so fun. 🙂

  3. Happy Birthday, ellen. You may have forgotten me, but I did not forget you and your winsome smile and dancing eyes! Love you and have a lovely day!

    • I’m quite sure she would still remember you Joyce! God bless you as you leave Thailand and move to Canada, I hope we can keep in touch!
