New ride!!

Ella went to her friend Hines Wellhausen's birthday party on Saturday. She rode in his little car and loved it. When I say loved it, i mean it. There was kicking followed by a fit when we took her out. I had to go and buy her one. Now, every afternoon, we go riding in the car. Here are a few pics of our new favorite toy:


My futures so bright....I gotta wear shades!!

Happy Birthday Ella!!

Well, our little girl is officially one year old. Eloise Brickell Marks celebrated her first birthday this past Wednesday, September 10, 2008. I can't believe she is growing so fast. We are so thankful for such a precious little girl. We love her more than words could ever express. She is the light of our life and brings joy to anyone who knows her. We are truly blessed. We love this little girl so much.

She had a birthday party at daycare. I made cupcakes for her class. Here she is on the way to school. She can now face forward in her carseat. She loves it.



Then on Saturday, we had a big party for her. We had such a great time with family and friends. We want to thank everyone for being there for this special day. It meant so much to us.

The first picture is of Ella's car she got from her Kiss (Chris, Tyler's mom). It is absolutely the cutest thing i've ever seen.



Ella also had the most beautiful cake and smash cake that I have ever seen. Miss Donna Poole made all of it for her. She is so talented. Thank you so much for helping make this such a special and perfect day. Here are some pics:





Here are some more pics from the party:









It is just so hard to believe that our baby has changed so much. Happy Birthday Ella!! Mommy and Daddy love you so much.





Also, I wanted to thank you for all of your prayers for my daddy. We got good news this past Thursday. He had a PET scan which revealed that he did have a mass, but it is benign. He will undergo another cat scan in 3 months for a recheck. Your prayers and thoughts were very much felt. Thank you!!
