Ella was interested in the sand, too.
Then, we lit the candles... and she stared at them. Daddy eventually "helped" her blow them out. She didn't see much of a point in wasting her well-earned oxygen.
She preferred to go fly a kite to eating the cake.
We had a Dora pinata. It's the kind where each kid pulls on a string. That way, everyone's involved and no one has to witness the death of a beloved character or animal.
Granny 'Wina and Grandpa Bob enjoying some snuggle time with a very sleepy (and grumpy) Ella. It was a fun party. Thanks to all the guests for coming, and to my parents and Edwin for all of their super help in preparing, setting up, tearing down, and cleaning up. You guys rock!
These are the cards that 'da boyz made for the girls. Aren't they lovely? I just wanted to make sure that the world got to see them because they did such an amazing job making them. Thanks, guys!
