Creative Party Idea
I wanted to come up with something special and personal we could do for Ellie during her party so I decided to have a guest book of sorts. I thought I’d invite everyone to write a note for Ellie and drop it into a jar, then Joey came up with the clever idea of having everyone write on a deck of cards. In the following days after the party we filled in the rest of the cards with different memories from her birthday and moments from our first year with her, as well as things going on in the world…popular movies, price of gas etc. I hope it will be something she treasures forever.
some of my favorite cards:
When asked “what do you like about Ellie?”…Jude: “I love her big”
Your cousin John was very concerned you didn’t eat all your B-day cake
You love to dance (rock) to music!
Ellie…loves playing with the books on the bookshelf…favorite word: “uh oh”…yells when tickled…always hums while she eats…is a very happy baby
