Ella’s Birthday

We all had a great day on Ella’s birthday.  Ella had school and Sunny and I had the day off from work.  We spent the last hour of Ella’s school day in her classroom.  It was so wonderful to be able to spend time with Ella and her Octopus class.  We were going to go with Ella to get her ears pierced after school but she decided that she didn’t want to.  We are not going to push her into getting her ears pierced.  She’ll do it when she’s ready.  At night, we had dinner at Nama with Phyllis and Naomi and then the Kim/Arenas came over for the best cake in the world.  Check out the photos below – Sunny outdid herself with a Minion Cake!
