Party Day!!!!

We had family over for Reid's 2nd birthday party last night. It was a great time and another day to be thankful for my wild and crazy 2 year old!!!! Here are some of the highlights. I took loads of pictures and have some video to post later...but here are the nuts and bolts of the night!

"Mow Mow" cake....Reid's request.
Singing happy birthday....oh, excuse me...."Hapa Daka!"

Notice the help from big sister.....I had to laugh. I am sure Reid could have taken care of business himself....but big sister is always there to back him up!

The cake was a success! Yum!

A real success....gotta get every last bit of that taken care of!

He spent time figuring out how the bow was put together. Seriously. He is a thinker. At this rate, it will take 12 days to get through Christmas!!!!

This is my cousin and Reid. Getting into the unwrapping finally.

Ahhhhh, the pinata. This was Ellie's idea. And it was great fun. What a way to put the Halloween candy to use! We just filled the pinata up and had a ball! Note to self.....every year the Halloween candy can easily fill a pinata for ALL to share!

Taking it all in while Ellie was hitting the pinata with all she had!

LOOK WHO IS HOME!!!!!! Pap Pap is back from his 6 months away in PA with his other son. Reid was soooooo glad to see him. They were buddies for much of the evening.

My cousin, Coman, with Ellie. Ellie loved her time with him. My aunt and him live in time with them is precious.

Mom and Ellie. It definitely was hard without Dad there. But we were grateful for our time together.

Grandma with Reid and one of his gifts from Aunt Diane. A dry erase board. He loved it!

The night was coming to a close here.....tired eyes and time for a little reading together.

My little man is not so little anymore. Had a great night with family. Feel so bad that Pappy and Grandma did not get in the did that happen???? Oops! Loved our time together and feel blessed by the love around Reid. Happy birthday big guy! Love you!

Hello, and welcome to my page! I am so glad you are here. I am going to try and show you the average life of a 5 year old from my perspective. Mommy and Daddy will help me along the way if I get stuck.

Let me first introduce my family to you. I am Ellie. I am a 6 year old. I live in Ohio with my Mommy, Daddy, little brother Reid, and dog, Sophie. My mommy is a teacher.
