ella girl's birthday...

a week and a half ago, we got to help celebrate our niece, ella's first birthday! she is the sweetest little girl with the funniest laugh. it's more grunting than laughing :) this has been the fastest year. i remember so well holding her for the first time. she's going to be a big sister later this year. canon is 11 months older and ledger is 7 months younger than her. i always think of ella and canon closer in age since they have been together longer. canon loves ella so much. he is so sweet to her bringing her toys, sharing, and smothering her with hugs!

i have no idea why this is underlined, but i'm just going to go with it! her party was a fun day! we had a cookout in their backyard. as we were finishing up eating, it started raining. the weather could not make up it's mind that day. it cycled through cloudy to rainy to blue sky a few times. i know when your planning something outside how stressful it is when the weather doesn't cooperate. i've already started praying for good weather for canon's party :)

always the little performer! canon playing ella a birthday song. we practiced the week before singing and saying "happy birthday". the best we got from him was "hap day"! he likes to stick to one syllable words...

we got a great new picnic blanket that we were excited to use. ledger enjoyed rolling around it. he also enjoyed rolling to the edge and grabbing fistfuls of grass! we got to see lane's grammie and papa again :)


ella wasn't too sure about her cake! the only way they could get her to eat it was by putting cheerios on each bite. i wish i had her control when it comes to cake!


we forgot to get a picture with all the babies, but this is with our sweet friend, alexis. is she not the cutest, most dainty thing? she's 8 months old!! ledger had 5 pounds on her...

sweet cousins:)

ledger enjoying his toes...

canon had just gotten his tux for tyler's wedding. we had to try it on him to see how much we needed to hem the pants. he is so handsome. when i saw it on him, i had visions of his prom and wedding...i'm not kidding! it's going by too fast :(

once again, the shirt comes off, and he goes to town performing. he was going through songs on tyler's phone boody-dancin'. he's a hoot! it was a fun day :)
