Isabella woke up to an apartment full of balloons, we covered as much open space as we could with them, without making it completely impossible to navigate. We inflated a tank worth of helium balloons and put iup the standard "Happy Birthday" banner... which we doctored and she loved... especially when she woke up from her nap to catch us adding her name in crayon on the wall. *palm to forehead* Now how the heck do I tell her writing is only for paper and not for walls when we ourselves displayed that very behavior?
|Crafty devils we were.|
|This by the way prompted Nana W to tell me that I used to write on the walls a LOT.|
I wanted to come and post a ton of pics, but being one of the main jugglers I didn't have as much opportunity to snap those candid photos that I adore. Instead our birthday pics are spread across at least 3 phones and Papa's DSLR. I'll post what I was able to catch still and hopefully gather up all of the rest for her album if nothing else.
|Her gift from Papa stole the show and made it almost impossible to get her to even look at any more presents!|
|An original tickle me Elmo, mint in the box from papa.|
|Other gifts became places to tickle poor Elmo lol!|
|Sitting on her new parachute investigating a gift.|
|They made us the wrong cake, but it worked.|
|I have to check this out!|
|What's this thing here?|
|Oops, got frosting on my little fingers, I'll have to eat it. :D|
See what I meant about pictures? Busy mommy = not so many photos. Hopefully between daddy and the grands we can fill in all of the blanks. :)
