Elle’s party seems like it was a year ago, but I have to include it here because, well, I forget things.

It was a hit. That’s because she totally planned it all herself.
It was a fashion show. The girls came all glammed up in their most creative “fashion” outfits.
Then they did make-up at our house. I got a glimpse into teenager-hood. Hmmm. I think I’ll just go ahead and embrace it. Maybe I’ll have Elle give me make-up lessons. We turned on super loud music and all the girls walked the “red carpet.” Honestly, they were hilarious how into it they were.
Gotta have a little bit of “West Side Story” action.
They did Hollywood hand prints on their “red carpet” with their authentic someday-to-be-famous autographs.
…and swam to their little heart’s content.Third and final cake float for the year.
