On Saturday, our sweet little girl turned 4! Ellery is such a sweet little person and we are so proud of what a great big sister she has become. She LOVES to dress-up and has quite an imagination. Most days we are pretending to be Ariel, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Tinkerbell, or some other character from one of her books. Her party was naturally a princess theme, which included a surprise visit from "the real Ariel." Ellery has not stopped talking about this since Saturday, but already informed us that next year Ariel could bring her friend, Sleeping Beauty(what!!???, daddy is NOT going to go for that)!!!!

She is such a precious child, Merrilee. And, it's amazing to see both you and Darin in her......I can't say that about many kids......but she is the perfect combination of you two.

Happy birthday!

Oh Mer, that first picture is ADORABLE! I can't believe she is 4! Where has the time gone? I still remember when Ryan and I came to visit in Seattle and her in that white PJ that snapped up...the footie ones...she was so little!!
