Birthday Party Madness:

Ellorie had an awesome birthday party this afternoon.  It was "Flicka" themed.  We colored Flicka pictures, had carrot spoon races (and snacked on carrots), played mustang, mustang, mountain lion (duck, duck, goose), pinned the tail on the Flicka, and then we had a horse show.  
The horse show was my personal favorite.  I didn't get any good pictures, because obviously I was busy, but It was so cute.  The kids were all pretending to be horses on all fours.  They went around in a big circle practicing "walk", "trot", "canter", "halt", "reverse the arena", "back", and even "jumped a pole".  They were very impressive show ponies.  They all got blue ribbons after the show.  The kids loved it.  Then we had cake and ice cream and opened presents.   Thank you everyone for all the generous gifts!  Ellorie is so spoiled.  She had a very fun and special day.
