Glad THAT'S over for another year!

Don't get me wrong... we had so much fun, but WOW am I tired! The weather was perfect and we had a great turnout... something like 26 adults and 15 kids. Elise's BG was 241 before dinner, and after pizza, some fruit, icing-less cake, tons of excitement, running around the playground and lots of bounce house fun she came in at 118 before bed. Go us!

And because you asked (and because she's just so darn cute)... pictures!

I know the picture is blurry, but it was too cute not to post! Elise having fun in the bounce house... thanks Winston and Shirley for letting us borrow it!

Wonderful friends Chris, Val and little Mavis

Cute, cute, cute Madison

Cristiane, Marcelo, and itty-bitty Liam - our youngest partier

Happy Birthday Elise, boy that is a lot of icing!

She was so excited she started singing before we even lit the candle!

She loves to blow out the candle

Waiting to sing again (we sing to her in English and Portuguese). On a side note, I love Travis' mischievous little grin in this picture



  1. LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!! Looks like a great time...thanks for the pics.

    She's quite a cutie...mmmm...the cake looks yummy!!! I think I would have dived right into one of those whopping balloons :)

  2. She is so tall!!

    Congratulations! What a perfect day. :)

    Sleep well!

  3. that is so great that your friends came and brought their kids how much fun was that I ask you ? Is that not awesome ? glad you had fun dear and get some rest .

  4. Hooray! It looks like everyone had so much fun! So glad to hear it finally happened AND that Elise's BS was so great! Nice work Mama!

  5. Wow! I love her party!! Happy birthday Elise!! You are so cute!!

  6. I just have to say she is one beautiful little girl! Looks like it was a success! I saw sidewalk chalk in one picture and I think that's a great idea to keep all those little hands busy! Never would have thought of that myself!

  7. Wow, I'm so glad everything turned out so well!! Elise is precious. Looks like a great time.

  8. It was an awesome day wasn't it :) There were a few of us praying for sunshine and I do believe our gracious God provided!!

  9. As we say in Portuguese:
    A quem Deus promete, nunca falta!
    Ask Fred for the translation!!
    I am very happy all turned out so great! I am so sorry to be so far away.
    Happy Birthday again and again and again Elisinha! Avo loves you very much!

  10. I'm so happy that Elise had a wonderful 2nd birthday. It looks like everyone had a wonderful time. Thanks for the pictures they are and she is very cute!! :) Happy birthday Elise!
