Ellie's 16th Birthday

My sweet girl turned 16 on Wednesday.

The kids helped me get the dinner ready and finish decorating. They found this balloon in the bag and declared it to be the coolest balloon ever!

I spent a lot of time and effort to create special decorations. They were inspired by the color schemes in the 1950's style diners.

We had a pyramid of donuts instead of cake - it was very fun!

She got a new mountain biking jersey and shorts.

We spent the last part of the party enjoying sitting around the fire. It was a perfect night for it; it was just slightly chilly with no breeze and clear skies that allowed us to see the stars.

What fun! The decorations are gorgeous Tam. Loved the shot of Ellie with her donut cake--she looks like a little girl in that one:)! Love, Natalie
