Whatchadoin’ Ellie? Table-surfing again? mmmhmmm! Who’s gonna be 2? Huh?! Who’s gonna be 2?!!
What is that? The size of your snack you’re willing to share with me? So generous!
Yeah, you think it’s funny don’t you?! Meanwhile I’m weeping while feasting on the crumb she gave me…
Ok, you are really cute. But your looks won’t keep me from being hungry! C’mere Ellie! I’m gonna eat ya!
Curses, foiled by the big sis! Thank her for being your rescuer, my little chocolate croissant!
Looks like you’ve got Brinley well-trained…she took the crumb, and liked it!
Make your own dang cake! What flavor suits your fancy today?
Oooh carrot cake…nice! Even though it’s the middle of “candy season” we are making an effort to be healthy. If we can just make it to Easter, we’ll be scot-free until Halloween…when it starts all over again.
Ok, go ahead and put the carrot shreds in the mixing bowl. Yes, just like that.
Take 1 or 2 or maybe 3,459 whiffs of the vanilla. We want to make sure its fresh!
Ahh, the best part. Soon you’ll be smearing that buttery frosting all over!
At the other end of the room b-day present wrapping was going full-swing. If there was such a thing as wrapping paper efficiency, this would be the equivalent of a gas guzzler. But no criticism here! They did it themselves, and that’s what counts.
Eleanor’s birthday celebration finally arrived…5 days late! Better late than never! Nice crown by the way!
Looks like that heath-nut carrot cake got the proper birthday treatment! Smothered in yummy frosting and Skittles!
Happy 2 to you Eleanor! We’re so glad you’re ours!
Family get togethers: They strengthen bonds and warm the soul…And light things on fire!
Fire?! Ellie spent hours baking this cake, and isn’t exactly thrilled with the idea of it being ablaze:
Big sis to the rescue, again! Phew! That was a close one!
Ok, let’s dig in! Whaddyathink Ellie? The Birthday Princess looks pleased with her perfectly perfumy pie!
Hey Ellie, you got a little shmootz over on…uh-oh, I’m getting the growl! Nevermind!
On with the show! What is the ultimate present for a 2 year-old in this house? Her very own crayon box. I cannot describe how difficult it is to make sure it stays her own…
Yeah, rip it! Just not the insides!
(photographer noticed how cute those little toes are…may they never grow to be “hoof extensions”).
D&B were hired as birthday fairies for Eleanor this year. Apparently we were out of crepe paper streamers. I like the handles!
This birthday celebration seems to be going on and on! Must. Be. Nice!
Hmm…what’s in her mouth doesn’t seem to match the pears & cottage in her bowl…did she snatch another treat?
We’re getting the growl again! Tuck tail and run!
I’ve got news for you Ellie. I know you’ve really enjoyed this 4-day long fiesta of fun, but…
…The party’s over. Don’t worry; Drew’s birthday is just around the corner! And your crayons are still all yours!
