Elisabeth modeling her new dress from Granny and her new tiara:After church Elisabeth changed from her dress and into her new ballerina outfit from Grandma:Yesterday morning Scott took the kids out for awhile so that I could work on Elisabeth's cake, and then in the afternoon the kids took naps while I finished it up and Scott put up some decorations for Elisabeth's party. When Elisabeth came upstairs from her quiet time and saw the princess castle cake completed her expression was priceless(more pictures of cake on previous post). I caught a glimpse of it on camera:We celebrated Elisabeth's birthday(minus the presents, we waited to do those today on her actual birthday with only our immediate family)in our backyard yesterday from 3-5pm. Our friends and neighbors let us borrow their inflatable slip and slide and wading pools, and a canopy for some extra shade. We set those up and Elisabeth invited over her sunbeam class and a couple other close friends and we had a little party. All the kids had an enjoyable time eating, splashing around and sun bathing. By the end of the party the wading pools were not only filled with water but also with dirt, grass, bugs, soggy cheetos and cake, yum!Happy Birthday Elisabeth, you are such a sweet heart! We love you and are so happy that you are a part of our family.
