Pesky Birthday

Yesterday was the Big Day for Noelle. Fortunately, she only turned two and didn't seem to notice that we could only squeeze her celebration in between our morning and evening church activities that we had going on. In fact, she probably would have appreciated a lot less attention and people trying to make her play with things just because they were her 'presents'.

Here she is retreating from the cupcake that was on fire.

Here she is trying to look enthused about Mitch's picture he'd made her.
THE DAY AFTER:

Mitch loves playing with Noelle's My Little Pony and brushing its long mane.
Ethan is a great daddy to Noelle's new baby.
And here is Isaac enjoying Noelle's new wheels.
Where is Birthday girl and why is she not enjoying her loot or at least yelling at her brothers that those toys are "mine!"?
Here she is. Playing with Isaac's building toys. Oh well. At least everybody is happy.

Happy Birthday Noelly. Maybe she's your tomboy afterall.
I love Mitch's gift from the heart.

they've all found something to keep them contented - who can complain about that... don't worry - soon she will be old enough to be planning the day for months in advance... won't that be fun?

I love the finger of scorn in that picture..."Eat the flaming cupcake or else!"

Happy Birthday Noelle...btw - we haven't seen you guys since you were pregnant with her. That was 2 1/2 years ago. We are bad friends!

That is the beauty of kids' bdays; the whole family can share in on the fun and toys.
Also, your boys are being churned with girl paraphernalia, which will help soften them, and Noelle already has been toughened, so you're set!

Those photos of the boys enjoying Noelle's toys just made me laugh! Maybe she'll learn "mine" by the next birthday...or maybe she'll just enjoy those building toys some more. Sara doesn't even like My Little Ponies...what's wrong with these girls!?!? Can't believe it's already been 2 years!

LOL! I love how the more kids you have, the less important it is that the littlest birthday kid enjoy the birthday.

We all know they don't know the difference and could care less about the birthday, but for some reason we forced it on our older kids who came along first.

It looks like she had a blast in her own way and I'm glad her brothers found joy in Noelle's birthday. :)

I am glad you have girl toys around for the boys to get in touch with their feminine side.
