Tristyn's Two Boo

This past Saturday we took a road trip to Brookhaven for the social event of the fall, Tristyn's 2nd birthday party.   Her uber-cute invitations promised a pumpkin-themed soiree, and let's just say that Marylou threw the kind of bash that Martha Stewart herself would be proud of.  Check out the precious pumpkin cake.  It made me want to sing "Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo"...
The birthday girl was very excited about her "happy cake."  She obviously has tried her mommy's baked goodies before and knew it would taste as good as it looked...
Possibly the most well-documented candle blowing-out ever...
Stella really enjoyed Marylou's yummy chocolate cake pops...
And Brian was eager to taste test the fall-themed cookies.  I will not reveal how many of these cookies Damon and I devoured on our ride home.  Let's just say that we did leave a few crumbs for Stella...

Aren't they cute?
One of the young male party-goers told Stella that only boys could climb the rock wall on Tristyn's swingset.  As you can tell by the look on her face, this confused Stella.  It also infuriated her mother.  I'm not really sure why, but I just found it very offensive for a boy to tell Stella she couldn't do something just because she was a girl.
When Stella asked me if that was true, I explained to her that what he meant was that only big boys AND big girls could do it, but not babies.  I further explained that since she now is potty trained, she qualified as a BIG girl and she could do it!  Then I cheered her on as she showed off her mad rock-climbing skills...
Daddy's weakness will never be Stella's...
Almost there...
In your face, boys!  Girls RULE!
Now that I got that out of my system, here is the sweet birthday girl, ready to slide...
Meanwhile, Cille hung out with Daddy...
While the other party guests went on a second hayride, Stella decided to help Mr. Brian out with a little yard work...
She even offered to drive home after the party was over...
Thanks for a wonderful day, Oswalts! We love you guys and are so blessed to have called you friends for over 2 years now!
