Museum Monday: The Building Museum

Watch out, Building Museum, here comes Eloise!  






These are from a few nights ago:
Eloise always gets in the most playful moods right before bed.  She loves dressing up.  She walked around all night with her sun glasses on...we laughed hard!




Eloise stays in character--we need a name for this alter ego of hers--and take a photo with an adoring fan.  Notice she poses by putting her arm around Alex.  We couldn't stop laughing at her.  Hilarious!

Eloise turns Two

Our princess is 2!  Hooray!  She knew yesterday was her "birday" loved all the cards, gifts, and attention she received.  






We all loved having Gigi and Grandad here this weekend.  They came in Saturday night, and we took them to the Bethesda Crab House.  It was a new experience for all of us.  We cracked tons of crabs and worked our way through some delicious meat.  Sunday we all went to church, then the zoo, and Alex and I went out for the night.  Unfortunately Eloise got sick Sunday night so we had to cancel our monument Monday visits.  Instead on Monday we opened gifts, went to the park, and played, played, played.




We had a quaint party for Eloise.  It was an "Elmer and Friends" themed night.  Do you know Elmer?  'Everybody's favorite patch work Elephant?"  




A few of our neighbors came over for cake and ice cream after dinner.  Eloise loves her neighborhood friends and went crazy when they arrived.




And here we are at the end of a wonderful day.  Thanks Gigi and Grandad for coming to help Eloise turn 2! We love you both very much!

Winkle Winkle



Great song Eloise.  I especially like the xylophone flip and the quick Elmo grab.  All seamless and very fitting.

Skiing in the wilderness



This is our fox friend.  He and the deer think they own this place!    This guys been hanging around here all day.





Eloise loves her skis!  She straps them on and walks all over the yard.  One of our neighbors calls her the "gross motor queen."  Stay posted.  Alex has some great video coming soon.  One features Eloise singing "Winkle Winle wiwle shtar..."  Something along those lines.
