¡Feliz Cumpleaños a Nuestra Niña!

Happpy 7th Birthday to our girl, Ella Kathryn! Ella turned 7 on August 26th...hard to believe it has been 7 years since we first met our little girl!

To celebrate "Nica-style", we went to the market and bought a nearly life-sized Cinderella piñata for Ella and her classmates to beat at her party. We jokingly asked Ella how she felt about beating up such a nice Cinderella piñata. She said with a grin...it will be like we are those mean girls on the movie that tear up her dress. LOL!

Ella and her compañeros (classmates) had a great time at her birthday party. Here in Nicaragua..."North American summer-time" birthdays get to celebrate at school since the school year runs February to November!

Here are some snapshots of the celebration.
