Elliana's second book is done! I always upload all my pictures to Shutterfly, so I can at any time get the photos printed and it's also nice to have a 'backup'. If my computer takes a dump, I will always have my pictures on Shutterfly and could order the cd's. I've been trying to remember to back my PC up on my external harddrive(which reminds me I have to do soon). I've checked out many websites where you can create printed books (http://www.snapfish.com/, http://www.mypublisher.com/, even Walgreens, but I've found that Shutterfly has better backgrounds and colors to choose from and is pretty easy. This is my second book I've made so far and am pretty happy with it. My next goal is to create a digital scrapbook by using my own backgrounds, patterns, fonts, etc. So, I would buy or create the art myself and do the layouts in Photoshop or Illustrator. That would take TIME though and right now I just don't have it! Anyhoo... Click here to see the new book I made and if you want to see the first one, click here.
We had a great time for Ellie's First Birthday! Although Ellie was not feeling well due to shots she had a couple days prior, she was in good spirits. My theme was cupcakes and hello kitty of course. Here are some pictures from the day:
Not really sure about the cake.
Yup, Definitely not liking the cake.

Ellie's first year
Unfortunately this is how we ended the night. Ellie had a fever again and threw up. She's a tough little girl though! Right after this picture she gobbled down 2 Japanese Red Bean popsicles.
We got Elliana's 1 year pictures taken yesterday by the wonderful Amy McManigal. It was in between the thunderstorms and the lighting was perfect. Ellie wasn't too happy about sitting on the grass, since we haven't exposed her to it too much. Here is a sneak preview of one of her outfits. She is so cute I can't stand it!
