HER FIRST CAKE!
it doesn't look like elle has too big of a sweet tooth right now. she liked the icing, but wasn't crazy about the whole cake thing. michael came up with the chocolate on chocolate idea. and boy, was she messy! she got a bath in the sink after she was done. her cousins had fun eating the leftovers.
the big kids had fun with the pinata in the front yard. my youngest nephew (in the last picture) was running around with the cupcake on his head and ran right into the tree! it was hilarious! i wish i would have caught it on video. i'm so happy my big brother surprised us by coming up from dallas. i'm ready for another party... how about you, mom? (she helped me sooo much.)
we couldn't have asked for a better day mid-august for a backyard party!
