Birthday Party for our girl Ellen

We invited Ellen's group of friends and their moms last Saturday to celebrate Ellen's birthday. Two of the girls were away...one to the mountains and one to the beach. The guests arrived after a morning of Challenger Cheering.

We ate pizza and some other yummy things. The girls gathered on the porch and the moms on the deck.

Our Precious girls!


Oh, Kelly, you are hidden ....


Much better ☺
Love these ladies ♥

Someone was a bit anxious to get to the gifts!



The moms watch
and take pictures!







She received such nice gifts!
Her friends were so generous
and....
Her friends know she loves Reese's PB Cups!!


We played Bingo....

Ellen says,
Is that Reese's I see on the prize tray??


The girls had a lot of fun.
We played till everyone had a full card =)


Time for cake and ice cream!

Love ♥





Yeah!
Let's eat cake!!

Ellen had a wonderful time. We are so blessed to have this group of friends who enjoy being together!

After everyone left, I sat on the porch to drink a cup of coffee and to reflect and be blessed ♥

Then I remembered that I hadn't taken any pictures of the decorations.
I almost always forget to do that.
So, I grabbed the camera, again, and snapped a few.

A collection of some of Ellen's favorite things
and 
a few favorite snap-shots.






Yellow and Orange...
Ellen's favorite colors!


These party favor bags were so much fun to make.


The day was not over...we celebrated Paityn's birthday at Chuckie Cheese's that evening! Pictures of that comes with the next post.

Doris, this just blessed my heart so much to see Ellen having so much fun with her friends and you with their moms. And how wonderful for you to be able to have them all over to your lovely house for the party. God has been very good.
