Update:


In case you haven't noticed, there is an additional child in our family photo. I would like you all to meet the newest member of our family. She is the pretty little 7 year old in the purple dress. "Eloise" now has a little sister. We have decided to call her, "Amelia Bedelia".

From the heart.....

Even though we had our huge group Birthday party at the beginning of the month, Eloise's actual birthday didn't arrive till the end of August. We made her wait till the actual day to receive her gifts from Mommy & Daddy. First of all we wanted her day to be special and second we were buying ourselves a little more time.....




I picked out fabrics...


...and sorted through patterns.



We let the cupcakes for Eloise's class cool while....




...Daddy drew up building plans.




At 4:30 this morning those plans became a reality.




While Eloise was sleeping her doll had a makeover.



She also got to trade in her basket/bed for a new one that matches her big sister's.




The cupcakes are all ready to be delivered to school...



...and our daughter now has several hand made gifts from her two biggest fans.
HAPPY BIG "9" BABY GIRL
WE LOVE YOU!
