*Ella's 7th B'day SPA-rty!*

Ella wanted a *SPA PARTY* this year for her 7th Birthday.
So, of course...being my baby girl...that's exactly what she got! :-)
We were so thankful her b'day party day landed at the tail end of the 2 week Blizzard Snow break...thank you Sunshine!!
Abby, Ella & I worked together to turn Abby's bedroom into "The Ruley Beauty Salon"
Twinkle lights and all...
We had a Foot Spa Pedicure area
The Manicure Table
The Facial & Body Glitter Vanity
The Bucket o' Flip Flops (to wear after pedi's)
Here's just a few of our beautiful spa clients that day
It was a busy little salon!
Ella was 1st up for a Facial
She loved every minute of her mask & cucumber treatment
In the mean time, lil' brother found his way in & helped himself to a foot massage
(& later found a relative to paint his nails blue - both hands & feet!)
Blue Toenails were popular
And fun *Girly Stickers adorned most nails
Another facial client relaxing during her mask
Nana rocked the Pedicure while B'day Girl watched on...

Time for Cake!
Make a Wish Sweet One...
Presents, presents, presents!
Ella's beloved new Laura Dare nightgown & decorate your own toothbrush...one of b'day girl's favorite gifts!
With a little time to spare before Moms arrived, it was back up for some *Freeze Dance!
Our two big girl "Helpers" (Big Sister Abby & Cousin Zoe) man the Stereo
Owen charms his way into a dance circle...
Momma snuggles in with her baby girl...
Ella's dear friend since pre-school stays for a sleepover...
they played & played
The day before Ella's actual b'day...she opened one of her long-awaited gifts from her Dad & I...
A *Pink Princess Nightgown & Robe Set!
I promised her she could wear it on the night before her actual b'day...and that she did. She hasn't taken it off since - except to go to school.
More gifts & goodies arrive the day of her real b'day. I'm tellin you, this girl was celebrated for days..........
Blushing after opening up her new Justin Beiber Doll! :-)
THE Stapler - I think this is the ONLY thing Ella actually asked for...it's all she wanted.
We had to, of course, find a cute one!
Oh, and Cherry Crisp for dessert...b'day girl's request

“It is the morning of her life and all her dreams are just beginning. May she touch fireflies and stars, dance with fairies, and talk to the man in the moon. May she grow up with love and gracious hearts and people who care."


*Happy, Happy Birthday Ella Marie! You are one, loved baby girl!! *
