Ok so this week we celebrated TWO birthdays! The first one was Ella's (our cute niece) and the other one was my mommys!... And now I am going to post some pictures of them... and write them a Birthday/ love letter. Enjoy.
Dear Ella (Smella),

We love you so much!We are so lucky to have a niece as sweet, cute, and spunky as you! You are hands down our favorite niece. Thanks for having such a killer Birthday party at Chuck E Cheese. We had such a fun time putting "pennies" in the games with you. Maybe sometime we can go back and watch the "mouse" dance.
We are so excited to watch you grow up. You have already gotten so big! We look forward to many more of your Birthday parties wherever they may be!

Dear Mom,

Thank you so much for passing on the snorting, bushy eyebrows, burping (yes burping), scoliosis, hairy feet, and so much more! Ok, but in all seriousness I look up to you so much because you are such a strong, independent, and amazing women. You are so fun to be around, and you have always been there for me. I can't tell you how much it means to me that no matter what I am participating in, soccer, music, a talk in church, even a talent show, I know that I can always count on you being there. Now that I am married I am realizing how much you have done for me. I hope that one day I can be like you in all areas of my life. I hope that you had a great Birthday and that you know how much we love you. HAPPY 29th BIRTHDAY!
Emily and Steven
