Ellie Bellie's Parties

Our lucky little one year old got to have 2 parties for her 1st birthday. The weekend before her Birthday, we were in v-town having a bridal shower for Molly. It was also Auntie Sandy's birthday that weekend and since the whole fam was around, we thought a celebration was in order. Here are the birthday girls getting a first glimpse at their cake.
Elle even got to have her own cupcake.

Lucy really wanted to get in on the cupcake action and since it was actually Sandy's birthday, she just had to jump in! The following week we had Ellen's party at home.
Here are some of the party goers singing Happy Birthday to Ellen.
More party people.
I was trying to get nice pictures of all of the party attendees. I abandoned that plan after this picture.

Here is Ellen enjoying her cake. She had practice with the cupcake, so this time she was ready to dig in!Momma & Daddy with the birthday girl.
Yay cake!
Then it was on to presents. Elle had a few helpers.
The happy birthday girl.
I haven't been too emotional, but I'm a little teary eyed as I am writing this. It sure goes fast.


  1. A great party for a great little one year old. I am so happy I could be there. Love the funny pictures too!

  2. Boy is she ever a beauty, that makes two now. I kept zooming in on the pictures to get a closer look. We really missed being up there to celebrate such a momentous occasion, but we were thinking about all of you on the day. Love to everyone! (Maybe you can photoshop us in the pics so we feel like we were there after all).

  3. Wow Becki. Can't believe she is one. It does go by quickly, doesn't it. You are doing an awesome job of capturing each moment, however. Can't wait to see you and your girls! :)

  4. She is one! Yeah! What fast year. Seriously, too fast.
