It was pure delight to see Ellie eat her cake! The pictures tell it all.
Everyone will always remember Ellie's party because of the rain... that didn't stop us from celebrating this beautiful little girl's birthday. Good job Marci and Mike...
I love being with you... your awesome family and your friends.
I love you all. See you next week.
Perhaps we should make our day Wednesdays?Dad is having many client things on the weekends.
Besitos,
MOM/Gammy

Wow, it's been a year already?! What? It seemed like yesterday I was crying with laughter watching your video attempts to get little Ellie here. Wow, time flies. She's cuter than ever!

Marci-soooo cute. I love 1-year-old birthdays. My mom says I ate my cake with my first toothbrush. That started a tradition of serving 1-year-old cake with a new toothbrush. Your Ellie is so beautiful. Just like her momma. Hope your summer is going well. ps-what does besitos mean? Kisses? RaeAnn

she was adorable at her party! But, then again.. she's always adorable. :-) even though it rained buckets, it was a great party. Sorry my kids were so "involved". best word I could come up with! this is why I need Nate at functions like that! haha

I can't believe she's 1. I feel like I know her through your blog and I swear she was just born. Well, Happy Birthday to Ellie!

That party was rockin' I tell ya. I loved the ducks, bubbles, watching Ellie mash her cake up (laughing right now), & watching all of the kids attack the presents. I think the rain helped us all get to know each other better :) Anywho, I felt pretty cool to be the only "friend" there for a little while before others showed up not going to lie! Love you guys! (seriously I do).

I can't believe Ellie is a year old! I can't believe it's been that long that we have all been enjoying reading wonderful stories of your sweet girl! Happy baby b-day!

Aw Marci! So cute! I love your little one. I was wondering how things went with all the rain, I am glad to hear it was still a wonderful celebration!

She is just so adorable. I was having the same feelings on Finn's 1st birthday...and now he's almost 2! It really is so surreal to watch them grow up before your eyes...makes you want to enjoy every last second.
