As well as our daddy who kind of avoided all the girlies and chose the a/c over all of us chickies outside.
I made fabric Peace sign (Ellie's choice of theme for her party) fabric cuffs as party favors.
Mamas hung out in the wings and let the chicas partay in the pool.
Ellie LOVED all the big girl attention! I don't know many 4 year olds who have as many 10 year olds as 4 yr olds.
It started out small scale and quickly became a biggie!
Miss Patty and Miss Kelly, who make all of our cakes, did a fabulous job on Ellie Sue's cake.
Even though Gabbi Girl ate off the "Ellie" prior to the party!
You know how they say "you'll look back on that and laaaaugh". Well, I'm still waiting to laugh about that one!
Then came the time for opening gifts. And I am glad my kid does actually get all fired up about all gifts, big and small!
Staci and Mary Allison were there and actively engaged. Thanks, girls! Staci even got in the pool with the partygoers. And Mary Allison showed up early to help me get the goodie bags together.
Ellie definitely didn't need me!! She had the gift opening down pat!! And my baby girl seemed to need me a whole lot!
Ellie and Maddi had one final trick to do!
And Veronicia needed to wear a headband sweat rag!! Ha. Remember, it IS Louisiana. And Louisiana has no such thing as a "mild" summer!!
Linda Lou came out to operate the snowcone machine.
And each girl was fitted with their party favor.
Hey, there's Sarah. Remember Sarah?!
and what about Jessi's kid, Kaitlyn!?
So for everyone who was waiting on Ellie's party, well, here's half of it. I will try and post the rest tomorrow.
More tomorrow. MO
