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!

wow!! how wonderful. What a beautiful and happy little princess you have. My only regret is that she will no longer be saying "WONNN!!" (one) ;) ... Can't quite convey the cuteness in a typed word.

I love the picture of Eloise and Gwen! I think Eloise looks so much like Gigi, especially that beautiful smile.
