taz + belly: Two Ellas

Two Ellas

01 June 2009

On Saturday we had the pleasure of attending a birthday for one of my Ella's best friends. Her name is Ella, too and we lovingly refer to her as "Big Ella" since she's four months older and instead of calling my daughter Ella she calls her "Dean Fields." No confusion there.

Her party was at Build-A-Bear, which we've never been to and boy was it fun. The kids got to pick out a bear, name it, give it a heart and stuffing, bathe it and dress it. Our bear's name is Peanut and she is wearing a cute polka dot bikini (unfortunately we left her at Garan's this afternoon, so there isn't a picture of the finished product).

The photos below are my favorites from the day and there is a link at the bottom of the post for the entire album.

I hope you don't mind that I'm not blogging on the weekends this summer and instead there will be weekend posts on Monday. I'm enjoying the sun with my family, working in the yard and on the house and just generally enjoying my life. I hope you are, too!

  1. We had Griff's 4th Bday @ Build-A-Bear - it was a massive hit. At first, K and Z thought it was going to be "babyish" but I'll tell ya, when it was time to choose outfits for their new bears, they loved it as much as the room full of 4 year olds. Griffin got his a Buzz Lightyear outfit, K got an army outfit for his, and Z got baseball. Great party. BTW - I got your email and FB about the table. You are too sweet! I am going to keep looking. If I don't find anything, I may give you a call. But I think I can prob. find something. Do you have my home email - I check it way more often than school (when it is summer). amygmartin@aol.com
    Have a great day!

  2. I love Ella's dress. Did you make it and if you did where did you find the fabric?

  3. Gran made Ella's dress from a scrap of fabric found at an antique mall! Sorry :).
