This post is a little late, as Ellie's birthday was March 27th, but sometimes life and stupid computers make it difficult to post when desired.
Ellie is in her Strawberry Shortcake phase in full force, so this year everythign was Strawberry Shortcake, both the character and the dessert. This year we let the kids pick what they wanted to do that was fun instead of throwing friend parties, and Ellie wanted to eat at IHOP.
Granted, we had just been there for Catie's birthday, but that was what she wanted to do. My sister, Roni, met us there as well as Grandpa Keith and we had oh so much fun. Then we went to Grandma Decker's house to have yummy dessert.
