Happy Birthday, Ella!

Ella turned 5 on Saturday! It's hard to imagine, since she's our "baby"! I had a lot of those Mommy Moments all day; remembering the night she was born, the 3 sibs coming to meet her in at the hospital, wondering where the time has gone and how I've survived having so many (amazing) little ones! I think birthdays are a gift to the parents to remember how lucky they are to have the gift of their children.

We went to see Horton Hears a Who (four stars & six thumbs up!) and then came back for a sleepover here with the Famous Ashworth Four. It was a great day. Happy Birthday Ella-bean!

Cherish those moments, Heather, they grow up too fast. Our oldest turned 20 this year, and our baby will be 17. :(

Heather,

Such precious reflections. Our baby will be turning 5 very soon, too. AND, the mama is turning 40. Quite a lot to reflect on over the next month!

Happy BDay Ella!
