…who Lucy thinks is pretty awesome.
These girls tried all kinds of new tricks which cracked us up.
We floated the birthday cake at that lake. (Elle’s birthday tradition…more about that HERE.)
Except it wasn’t really a cake…it was a granola bar:
And it was “floated” on a raft with five girls. And we couldn’t get the candles to light because of the wind.
But hey, it was floated:)
These cute Hawaiian girls brought over some bday treats…
…and so did these awesome grandparents:
We are creatures of tradition over here, so it was weird to switch up the birthday breakfast tradition to a bday dinner (chicken tikka masala, our favorite…recipe HERE).
But we survived just fine.
Gifts were given, hugs were spilled out, and love filled up that room of sisters.
Then the next night we had Elle’s cake request: hot cookies and ice cream.
That’s a girl after my own heart I tell you!
We had sparkler candles (compliments of her friend), and it took us a lot to get those suckers burning which cracked us up during the birthday song:
But mmmmm, they were good.
(Such a good cookie recipe HERE btw..)
Elle was right there with us in person and we forgot to get our traditional cheek-kissing-birthday-picture dang it! Maybe we’ll have to head over to visit that girl and get it a little late.
Happy 19th, Elle Belle.
