Happy Birthday Miss 4-year-old

Ellie turned 4 at the end of August and we celebrated her birthday at The Little Gym. I kind of procrastinated in getting the party organized and invites out the door, but luckily most of her friends and family were able to come.

She had a ball. She loved all the group activities, especially the parachute. But they played music throughout the party, so most of the time Ellie could be found dancing on the mat - whether anyone else was dancing with her or not.

Granny did an amazing job on the birthday cake, as usual. Ellie and Gran spent a few days looking at pictures of cakes, until Ellie spotted the one that she wanted. Ellie was once again spoiled by all the great gifts everyone gave her, and we spent the next few days reopening presents that she didn't remember opening at the party... so her birthday stretched on a while and what kid doesn't love that.

I can't believe my baby is 4-years-old. Ellie is a smart, energetic, friendly little girl. She loves school and learning new things. She is kind hearted, and heaps tons of love on her baby dolls and her brother. She is our little performer, always singing and dancing. And she keeps it lively around the Freed house. We wouldn't trade her for anything. I love you, E!

Cowboy Nakey

Check out our cute cowboy. We had plans for an adults only outing with friends to see Brooks & Dunn during their farewell tour this summer. As Jason was preparing for the concert and digging his boots and hat out of the back of the closet, Max decided that he wanted in on the fun too. He loved wearing the boots. He would try to take a step and fall down, then he would just giggle till someone set him up right again. Quite adorable, if you ask me.

Silly Kids

My kids can be just plain silly sometimes. Max climbed inside the tiny, little side table and had a good time just hanging out and watching tv with his water. As for Ellie....what can I say there? She is a goofball.
