My sweet Ella Kate turned 6 today.
She has been so confused about when she actually turns six. She can't keep straight whether she turns 6 on her birthday or on the day of her birthday party. Even tonight, she asked me if she was 6 yet!! I guess in a 6 year old mind, the party is the biggest part of the birthday.
Her teacher, Ms Sherbert, called me earlier in the week to see if I wanted to go on their field trip with them today. Me and Tanner were very excited to spend time with her on her special day!! We left this morning and spent all day "walking Reidville". We walked to the post office, fire department, dance studio, karate studio, Southern Sisters ice cream shoppe for ice cream, and finally to the ball fields for lunch and a little kickball! Ella Kate was partner with Raleigh and Layla and all the kiddos were so cute checking out Tanner. How special to be able to visit all those places right in Reidville on foot! I enjoyed spending time with EK, her friends, and such good teachers! I'm going to miss having a little on in Ms Sherbert and Ms Petrina's class next year!
Ella Kate asked for one thing for her birthday - a Hannah Montana guitar. Not sure why but....
I found one at Toys R Us but wasn't sure if it was the kind she wanted so I took her to pick one out after school. She ended up picking a Wizards of Waverly Place/Selena Gomez one over Hannah Montana(yes!!!!) and an ipod (or a MP3 player as we know them). As soon as she got the guitar out and strummed it, we both made a face! It sounded terrible!! She said it sounded like a bee. :) Pop tuned it for her and they had a little sing-a-long in the parking lot tonight. :)
Jake had baseball practice tonight, so Ella Kate, Tanner, and I had birthday dinner with Mimi & Pop at "chip and dip". She wanted Bojangles but decided to go to chip and dip since Pop liked it better. She was seranaded by the waitors and given a Mexican dessert. The look of embarrassment on her face was priceless!!
When we got home she loaded up her "ipod" with music and went straight to bed. Such a sweet day with a sweet girl.
Happy Birthday Ella Kate!! Mommy, Daddy, Jake, & Tanner love you very much!!
