Elle's Birthday Celebration

Elle has had quite the 2nd birthday celebration!!  Just last month we started her celebrating with a joint birthday party for the girls in Michigan and a trip to the circus!!  Then last weekend LD and I took the girls to Disney on ice for a special treat...and celebrated again!
The girls were SO excited about Disney on ice and Clare wanted to wear her very favorite party dresses.  We actually settled on these dresses because Clare really wanted to wear her Belle princess dress, but since we were going to dinner before, LD was not a huge fan.

And Elle looked so cute and ready to see some princesses!!
The show was super great and both girls were VERY into it.  Such a fun family night to celebrate a family of girls for another few months.

Elle's actual birthday was Sunday and we did our normal church, lunch and nap routine, and then had a little family celebration!

Elle had her very favorite Dora cupcakes and loved that we sang to her.  She actually asked us to sing to her a number of times.

Elle had already dug into her cupcake in this pic as you can tell by Elle's bright pink lips :)

These girls both love sweets....

A LOT!!!!

Then we opened a few presents and did the one thing Elle requested:

Jumped on our neighbor Mrs. Melanie's trampoline!!!

The girls would live on this thing they love it so much.

And love it even more when daddy's around to jump!! 
Elle - you are such a sweet and fun little girl. You never meet a stranger and have a gift of making everyone you see feel incredibly special.  You are afraid of NOTHING (even though sometimes you would show a little fear about things like heights, strangers, bugs, cars, etc).  You keep up very well with your sister and pride yourself in acting bigger than you are. Your daddy and I are so amazed at the physical abilities you already have like walking up and down the stairs by yourself, riding Clare's scooter and jumping. 
I absolutely love watching you and your sister play together, even if its mixed together with little fights and bickering.  You love when Clare teaches you and love when she allows you to play in her games.  You have a huge imagination already and are extremely curious.  You keep everyone in our house on their toes, especially when you disappear and we are left scrambling all over while you play your own game of hide and seek. 
You bring our family so much joy sweet Elle Adair and I cannot wait to see you become a big sister in the months to come.  You are going to be so good at taking care of your sweet brother.  You posses the perfect personality to play a middle child.  Thank you for allowing your daddy and I to love you and to teach you.  It is a JOY every day. 

I love you sweet 2 year old :)
