Happy Birthday, Ella Grace!

Ella Grace, 2 Years Old

I can't believe my baby is two years old! Derek took off work today, and we have partied all day long! I think you know EG pretty well by now, so there is no need for me to go on and on about how sweet, sassy, smart, and beautiful she is. :) So, here is how we celebrated her big day in pictures. Prepare to be on EG overload. LOL!

We started out by going to a toy store. She instantly found her birthday present...a stroller for "Baby." She also found all kinds of other things she liked. She is not hard to please.


Then, we headed off to Purple Cow for lunch. She had the "Happy Dog," and the waiter brought her a treat afterward...a purple ice cream sundae. She LOVED it, especially the cherry on top.


After lunch, we went to see Beverly Hills Chiuaha. You know this girl loves dogs, so she was SO excited! She loved seeing all the dogs dressed up, especially the dog that wore shoes. Now, that is right up her alley!


This is how she looked on the way home. She was worn completely out! Bless her little heart.


We are going to have presents and birthday brownies (EG and Evan's favorite) tonight and then the big party is on Saturday! A special girl deserves a special birthday, and I hope she feels like it is!

I love you, Ella Grace, so much! You are my heart!

Awww... LAH! Sorry I have been MIA for the week (and thanks for your sweet comment - I have missed you too) but what a great post to return to! 2 Already!

As always, I think she is the most adorable thing ever and I can't wait to see her in person! Give her a big birthday hug from Tennessee!!!!

And tell Derek to give YOU a bit non-birthday hug from Tennessee just because you are FABULOUS!!!!
