FAMiLY | Ella's 4th Birthday

It was Ella's 4th birthday on Wednesday. (November 14th!!) *sigh*

Because of scheduling conflicts...
we just kept things SUPER simple. *gasp*
Trust me.
I fretted over not having a party for her.
The theme was picked.
The invitations were done.
The planning had been underway for several months.
I was fighting a losing battle though.
Life is much busier when you have two teens and a toddler. 
(That could totally be the name of a t.v show) *wink*

BUT...
We still made her feel special...
surprised her with balloons and breakfast in bed...

If you follow me on Instagram, you saw this photo last week...

She got to choose her birthday dinner: Spaghetti
and birthday dessert: Strawberry Cupcakes
And we had dinner, cake and presents with Grandma & Grandpa A.

Here's a 1 minute video I made using Ptch to capture the evening...

I would embed the video but Ptch doesn't have that option yet. *frown*

By the way...
Don't judge...
Ella's hair was looking a bit crazy...
And I'm no professional Ptch videographer.
But it's definitely "keeping it real" for you.

KEEPiNG iT REAL
Honestly, as I type the words...
I still can't believe I didn't have the party I'd been planning.
I may need therapy to help deal with this loss...
It truly feels like a loss...
a missed opportunity. *heavy sigh*
