Ella turned one on June 28, 2011. We celebrated with family on July3rd. That morning my husbands parents and his sister drove up from Fairfax, VA to spend the day with us. My parents were also present and visiting from Alaska. It was a Sunday so we all attended church where we had Ella dedicated to God. Here is a photo of our whole family: Pastor Coon, baby Ella, John (Daddy), Sarah (Mommy), back row: Jen (John's sister), MomMom Sue (John's mother), PopPop Rich (John's father), Noni Robin (Sarah's mother), Papa Don (Sarah's father), Front row siblings: Tavin, Tanton, Torin, and Megan.
After Church we went for Brunch at IHOP, this was Ellas Favorite place to eat when i was pregnant with her.
Then it was home for the festivities. I made the fabric banner, the cake, and the cupcakes. You will notice in the photos that Ella does not like to be messy=) Daddy's face gets the cake and she helps him get cleaned off by eating the cake on his face. lol
