More Than Meets the Eye

Well, the birthday was a smashing success.  Calvin's only requests were Transformers and Legos and both were generously received.  


And Daddy's cake is always cool, but even more so when it includes just one more toy...


Cal was SUCH a good boy all day.  When I said, "See, doesn't it make for a nice time when you act like a good boy?"  he responded with, "Yeah.  Maybe I should try to do that most of the time."  Way to sneak that "most" in buddy.  Yup, I say it every time, but I think we're going to like 6.


This little monkey had some struggles last week and I am suspicious that they were, at least in part, jealousy related.  But he got some good grandma and grandpa lovin', so I think that helped.  And Calvin has been pretty good about sharing his loot.


And Baby Girl?  Well, she MOWED cake.  "Mo' peeeese"  We actually had to cut her off.  And the crown seemed to suit her too.  I think she's practicing for next month....


All in all, a lovely weekend.  Now, on to Monday.....

Good job, my dear. And have I told you yet how I'm thinking of coming out of baby-making retirement just so I can name someone Ellerie? (Not really, but I DO love that name.)

The Picture of Ellerie....I see Kirsten there! And from when I couldn't leave messages before... the picture of K and E in the snow? I love it. One of my all time favs. Of course I happen to think that K is one of the most beautiful girls on the planet!

The crown turned out great! Also...I might add...Mike did a fantastic job with the cake! Looks like a great day all the way around for Cal. I can't believe my little nephew is growing up so fast.
