Look whoo's 6!

It's been a rough couple of weeks for our family...
dealing with the loss of a loved one always is. It's so hard to get back into the swing of things...

But today is Ella's sixth birthday and despite a few major colds in the house, we're ready to celebrate.

But why do kids grow up so fast? I can't believe my little Boo Boo is 6 years old!!!

I stayed up last night to make this birthday outfit for her to wear to school.
They are doing a color theme this week and today was orange, so we had to coordinate her birthday outfit with the color orange.

I found these orange leggings in the drawer and a little under a half of a yard of this adorable owl fabric. {I have no clue where it's from... or how long I've had it, but it's cute!}

I used Planet Applique's birthday owl set for the shirt and ggdesigns owl felt stitchies for the bow.

For the skirt, I used Ellie Inpsired's Dancer skirt pattern, but hemmed it instead of bindng it. I really love how her birthday outfit turned out and so did Ella!

Happy Birthday, my sweet girl.
I can't wait to eat lunch with you at school, perform the million tasks you asked of me, and celebrate your birthday tonight as a family.
