Elliana is Seven!!!
I can't believe that seven years have gone by already....looking back, it has been a great journey and I just can't wait to see what God has in store for our little girl. Here are some highlights from her big day...

We let her choose one friend to do something fun with so she asked a classmate/neighbor to join her at Build A Bear and lunch at Red Robin. The girls had so much fun together!! And it was so much fun hanging out with them, too!
Their new furry friends! I love how they lead the kids to put love into their stuffies and get them all stuffed and sewn up.

Elli chose "Red Robin Hood -the place where you get a balloon" for lunch so we headed straight there after our time at the mall. The girls thought they were so grown up being able to order for themselves and choose milkshakes, too!

The girls were excited to come back and open a couple gifts before they played together and watched the new TinkerBell movie. What a fun day, especially with no school!

Once Daddy got home from work, Elliana opened the rest of her presents so here are some comical shots from all that. We hurried and ate dinner and had cake so that we could go to Incredible Pizza for a fun night of games and mini-golf and Jess' favorite, the bumper boat/car things. (She finally grew enough to be able to ride them this time around!)

The cake this year was Princesses....she had talked about doing a Barbie cake but fell in love with the light up Princess cake. Apparently, you are never too old for a Princess party ;) She had a great day and we are all worn out from all the fun! Thank you to all of you who sent special gifts and fun messages for Elliana. Wish we could have had you all here to have a big bash and enjoy this girl turning seven! Love to you all!!!

Looks like a fun day!!! You'll have to let me know how the Baby Alive doll works. Bekah would probably love one of those but after having "Potty Patty" I'm not too sure about dolls that eat and do the other thing... :)

Sounds like a WONDERFUL day! So glad she had a good birthday and even got to be out of school. Love the pics!!! And I can't believe she's 7!
