Cali's birthday party

We celebrated Cali's 2nd birthday when Joey's parents were here visiting last week. We did an Elmo party since that is about the only thing she gets excited about on TV-she is not much of a tv watcher....which is unfortunate:) j/k! My sister was also able to come out and we all had a fun time together. I asked my sister Tara to make Cali's cake because she is a total cake pro now- it turned out AWESOME! We had a fun time eating pizza, cake & icecream and watching our little girl blow out her candles.

The masterpiece. Tara should totally go into business! Go to her blog to check out her other cakes. She is just starting out, but has some natural cake decorating abilities!
Cali smiled so big when she saw her Elmo cake and the decorations.
The first thing she had fun with was her party blower. . .
Then it was time to blow out the candles. . .notice how they were strategically placed in Elmo's nostrils:) He he.
Yea!!! She did it with a little help from Mommy.
Time to dig in. . .
Cali is always happy when she has a treat. Me too. Thats my girl.
The scene
Aubrey really concentrating on her party blower skillz
Ella attached the bunch of balloons to her skirt, said, "I'm the party girl now!" and then struck a pose.
Nana being silly. Don't hate me Cyndi, but this is too funny not to post:)
Tara looking like she is up to no good.
Cali with her new "Sock monkey in a box" from Aunt Tara. It is so cute! Cali loves it. Thanks Tara!


Joey and I & Nana and Tata bought Cali a wooden playhouse for outside. I will post pictures of the construction of it and the kids playing in it soon. . .it is so so cute! Cali had a great birthday party. Thanks to everyone that was there in person and there in heart.

Cute pictures. Cali really did have a blast at her bday party. I think those blower thingy's were a big hit I just don't understand why Holly didn't get the ones with whistles, gosh Holly. And as far as the picture goes well hmmmm perhaps I'll have to forgive this time not too bad of a pose to bad I couldn't get my ears to blow the whistles out that would have been even more hilarious. The cake was very delicious and a welcomed treat for sure.

It was so much fun being able to be there for Cali's b-day! And I loved being able to make her cake, thanks for asking me to make it. :) And this song, "Let them be little", always makes me sentimental. They do grow up too soon...
