Elle's birthday is September 21, which we spent driving around mountains, hiking, and eating ice cream. Not a bad way to spend a birthday, but we gave her a little family celebration the following evening so she could have some cake.
It started a little sadly, since she had just woken up from a late nap (due to late church) to a crowd of people (she still isn't too keen on people).
Then she saw cake. And fire.
She needed a little help with the fire part, but she proved more than capable with the cake. She initially shied away from the messiness.
Then she took a tentative first bite.
And it was ON!
Look, she even shared!
Happy birthday, Ellie Bean!
