Birthday Fun

Someone very special had a birthday recently...

So she got a special treat.

She took...maybe two bites of the thing, though.

Eh.  The mix was only a buck.

But we have the mold now (thank you Valentine's Day clearance aisle) so we'll let her give it another whirl next year.  And the year after that.  It'll be a little tradition.  :)

We went to her cousins' house for dinner and festivities, it was all kinds of the Big Fun.

We got her this neat little toy.

You can program it so that it calls your child by name and pick what songs are on it.

We've been using it to work on letters and suddenly keyboards, magazines and anything with writing on it has become much more exciting for her as she points out H, F, B, S, O and a handful of others.

Yeah, it's random.  She's still not even super solid on any letter in her first name, and we've been working on them for months.

My Dad and our family there sent a very cool percussion set and other goodies:

We feel a lot better with this little nudge towards becoming a band geek. We would be extremely pleased to raise up a whole bunch of awesome band geeks.

And amazingly, she only hits the drum with the sticks!  Yeay!

But this, by far, takes the crowning moment of the party (opening her first present).

We're pretty sure that's the definition of "hilarious" in video form...

But seriously, we can't believe this happened two years ago...

Where does the time go?!

Yay! Someday, she's have more of an appreciation for the finer things in life (i.e. the Crimson & Blue). :-)
