Birthday Girl

Happy Birthday Ella! I am so proud of my Ella girl. She is a great big sister, a super student, a good friend, and a big helper to me.
At 8 years old I can hardly believe where the time is gone! I have learned so much about being a mom with Ella, and so much about myself. I have learned that the main purpose of our children is to grow and learn in the process. So even though I don't always do everything right, my ability to learn on the go, and God's strength, helps me through this season of life. I love you Ella! May God continue to bless you in the coming years.
Yes that is a bb gun in her hands! She enjoys the great outdoors with her daddy over the summer - last year they backpacked for 5 days to summit the highest peak in Utah!

Nummy Rainbow Cake - an Ellis family tradition!

I remember Ella when she was just a babe. It is hard to believe that she's 8!
