Happy Birthday Bear!

I will anounce the winner of my contest in a moment - first you must suffer through some Mama gloating.
Tuesday, my little girl turned two. Hard to believe that in two (very) short years, she went from this...

to this...


Yesterday we had her party at the local Children's Museum. She talked about it all day (my party, mElmo, my party, mElmo, my party, mElmo) and managed to keep herself pretty much composed during the whole affair. Only once did she have a little meltdown, when she got in trouble for pushing another two-year old who tried to take her new shopping cart.



A friend made the cake and Bear insisted on having the nose - the entire nose, though she basically only ate the frosting. She came down from her sugar high hard and practically begged to be put to bed when we got home last night.

This morning the toys were all unbound from their boxes and ready to go. Here are some pics from the (morning) after party.


And now, the part you've all been waiting for. April, from Clandestine & Candour, is the winner!
She wins this very lovely prize of warm winter yarn and a set of four knitting pattern note cards. Congratulations April! And thanks to everyone who entered - I hope everyone will keep visiting.

Congrats to the winner, and such a cutie! Happy birthday girl. Mine turned 15 this past year and did not even want a party. That and not trick or treating, well...sadly baby has grown up! They just laugh at me. Enjoy her now!

They grow up so fast. Our little one will be 3 in a few short months. *sigh* She is adorable.

Looks like a great time was had by all. I can just remember when Trouble and Munchkin were that young. Your pictures reminded me that I owe Trouble a pictorial on my blog too....

To Bear:
Happy B day! Cute cake, great choice with inviting Elmo! Just tell mom that your training for Black Friday Christmas Shopping, and she wont' yell at you next time you shove someone off of your cart :)
