Pinkalicious Party

For Ella's 3rd birthday, I threw her an all girls Pinkalicious Party where everything was PINK. The idea is based off the book. I had so much fun planning it. I told the girls to come in their most pinkalicious outfit. I made each girl a pink tutu and magic wand. We played games, made crafts and played around. Thank you to those who came and joined us. We had a blast!

All the girls dressed up in PINK!

Ella's 3rd Birthday Weekend

Ella turned 3 on February 8. The whole weekend was filled with activities about her. First, Jordan's parents and Marcie came down to celebrate with us. It rained pretty much the whole time so everything we did was indoors (there is not much to do in Southern California when it rains). We spent lots of time shopping, eating, and spending time together (I guess thats what we usually do when they visit). The pictures are in random order because I can't seem to move them around.
I took Ella to the doctor for her 3 year check-up and she is 38 inches tall and weighs 37 lbs. She gained only 2 lbs last year. She is starting to to really slim down. Meanwhile, we found out that McKenna had phemonia.
The yummy Baskin Robbins ice cream cake (my favorite). She looks so old in this picture.
We had dinner at my parents house on Sunday night.
Dinner at the Magic Lamp Restaurant on Saturday night

Marcie took Ella to Build-a-Bear for her birthday. She got to pick out whatever animal she wanted. She picked a multicolored teddy bear and named her Candy. Ella loved it!
Giving her bear a heart.
Cleaning her bear.
McKenna's first time in a high chair at a restaurant. She thought she was "hot stuff".
Dinner at Benihanas. Ella thought it was fun watching her food be cooked right in front of her.
It was a fun but exhausting weekend for some people!
