Elmo success and a great day!

Well, the long hours on the cake paid least I was happy with the outcome (actually that isn't entirely true.....of course I thought it could have been better, but considering I have never had any training and this was only the 2nd cake I've ever decorated, I was pretty happy)!

This is how Sami looked the whole party. The poor girl just does not enjoy large groups of people and even hates being the center of all that attention even more!

I had to coax her into opening her gifts.....she just wasn't interested. She kept getting up and walking off! I felt bad for her and bad for the people who brought the gifts. What do ya do.....she's only two.

Nini & Papa got her a tricycle and it was pretty popular with all of the kiddos. Here you can see Sam's version of "sharing." She does pretty good at sharing when we remind her but she is certainly creative in finding a way to compromise! Levi really loved the tricycle (even though he has one at home and doesn't get near as excited) so Sam just got on the back!

And, as you can see, my Dad was working pretty hard! He is always eager to get the babies to sleep but I really think it's just an excuse to nap himself!

The bottom part of the cake was chocolate and Elmo was white......aren't I thoughtful! I did forget to get the ice cream out though (and it even said, "Please join us for cake & ice cream" on the invitation). OH WELL!

Overall, it was a great day and I think Sam will enjoy all of her goodies! (Tricycle, Skates, Tennis Shoes, Cowboys cheerleader outfit, V-Tech Baby, Color Wonder stuff, sidewalk chalk, Little People Bus, Keyboard with drums and cymbals, Baby doll and clothes, musical tea set.....I think she will be set for quite some time)

SWEET SLEEP! Oh, I haven't been able to say that for soooo long now! I actually got a full nights sleep last night! I don't know if we wore them both out or what but he slept from 10:30 until 7 and she slept until about 7:15! WOW! Please pray that he continues to sleep through the night! This would make my life so much easier!

I just had to show you how abusive my Mom is......this is what happened when Balin was at her house last week. Just kidding about Mom but isn't that CRAZY! He fell and bumped his head in the bathtub! Poor guy!

That's a cute cake. You are so creative to not have taken any classes.
Happy birthday Samara. I know you'll enjoy that tricycle.
