How To Create A Monster

1. Allow my three year old to get out of bed early
2. Go shopping then have friends over
3. Allow child to skip her nap
4. Go to another friends house for a late dinner
5. Stay out past child's bed time
Ohhhh. . . Wait. . . that is another kind of monster. . .
This one was easier to make and easier to pin down.

I did create both kinds of monsters this week. Lucy is back to her usual sweet self and this little guy will be heading to a 1st birthday party and going home with someone else this weekend.

Ellie Bellie's Parties

Our lucky little one year old got to have 2 parties for her 1st birthday. The weekend before her Birthday, we were in v-town having a bridal shower for Molly. It was also Auntie Sandy's birthday that weekend and since the whole fam was around, we thought a celebration was in order. Here are the birthday girls getting a first glimpse at their cake.
Elle even got to have her own cupcake.

Lucy really wanted to get in on the cupcake action and since it was actually Sandy's birthday, she just had to jump in! The following week we had Ellen's party at home.
Here are some of the party goers singing Happy Birthday to Ellen.
More party people.
I was trying to get nice pictures of all of the party attendees. I abandoned that plan after this picture.

Here is Ellen enjoying her cake. She had practice with the cupcake, so this time she was ready to dig in!Momma & Daddy with the birthday girl.
Yay cake!
Then it was on to presents. Elle had a few helpers.
The happy birthday girl.
I haven't been too emotional, but I'm a little teary eyed as I am writing this. It sure goes fast.
