Ellie's 4th Birthday Party

Elisabeth celebrated her 4th birthday as we have pretty much celebrated the last couple of her birthdays: at home with lunch and a traditional cake and ice cream chow down. She wanted to have a Cinderella cake and specifically requested a "marrying doll" which Grandma and Grandpa Ellinger happily gave her. She loved being the center of attention on her big day. Next year will probably be the start of celebrating the "big" birthdays, but it was nice to keep it simple another year. By request of Elisabeth, we all had chicken salad sandwiches (which I think is a STRANGE request from a 4 year old for food), but she ate it like it was going out of style.

I can't believe that Ellie is 4! What a crazy 4 years it has been to figure out how to raise her. I wouldn't trade a thing about her.

We love you Ellie!
