Well, a good time was had by all!
A few of the pictures from the 'big day' are included in this post. I'm working on a link to a repository for the rest.
We celebrated E's 2nd birthday on Feb. 19, so all the available grandparents could attend that wanted to do so. Her actual birthday is Feb. 21st.
We had 'Memaw & Paw' (my folks) and 'Momma Jo and Grandma' (the hubby's mom and grandma) come in for the big event.
Paw showed E how to climb into one of our trees and look at the barky dog in the neighbor's yard. She in turn, showed him her 'play ground', trying to convince him that, yes, he could fit in the tube to go to the next section! HA!
We had pizza and cupcakes and about a dozen kiddos over. She had big fun. She was the youngest one there, and the majority of the kiddos were boys, but she enjoyed herself all the same. You get more than one 6-7 year old boy in a room, and there is -going- to be WRESTLING! And there was! She just watched as all the older kids ran around the house and wrestled and in general were fabulous, crazy kids! It was great!
Momma Jo gave her 3 pairs of 'croc' shoes: baby blue, maroon, and teal. She immediately grabbed the TEAL ones and put them on! It was a fight getting them off for bed later on that night! :o)
She also received dolls, crayons and coloring books, a little people scooter set, new books to read, clothes, a tabletop easel with a chalkboard on one side and dry erase on the other, an aqua doodle set, a new doll stroller, a kid size backpack, gardening set, a singing jewelry box and an Easter Hat and Easter Dress. Whoa! What a haul! We have such good friends!
For our part, the hubby and I got her a New Pool Fence. Yay! I know, I know. "It's about time!" But hey, money doesn't grow on trees...or at least none of OUR trees. :o)
It was a quick visit, and everyone left out on Wednesday. After we had the house empty of visitors, E and the hubby watched some "YOUTUBE" videos....E really likes the ones that sing the ABCs, or the laughing baby ones, and anything with animals. There are some really cute ones of Otters.
Then later on Wednesday afternoon, her boyfriend (EK ) came over for a play-date. He had been unable to attend the party the day before. So they played and had leftover pizza and cupcakes for lunch. Yum!
Well, I guess that is it for now. Much love to you all!
