One Year Old!













Ella has officially turned ONE!  We had two celebrations.  One with her friends, and the other was a joint birthday party with her cousin Parker, who is nine days older than Ella.  For the second party, my dad’s side of the family, along with Ella’s grandparents from New York, got together for an Italian feast…and a feast it was!   My parents created a big pot of homemade meatballs {Ella’s favorite} and my Aunt Marie {Ella Marie’s namesake} brought an elk lasagna.  I made my grandma’s baked chicken and my grandpa’s famous chocolate cake recipe for the adults to enjoy after dinner…along with adequate veggie dishes to balance out the abundance of “carne”.  To family…cheers!
