Having Her Cake and Eating It, Too

Warning: If you are not interested in seeing many, MANY pictures of my beautiful daughters, you are reading the wrong blog post. Proceed with caution. You have been warned.

On the evening of Cille's birthday, Mawmaw and Pawpaw came to visit and give Cille birthday presents...
Cille's favorite thing in the world is to climb into Stella's red polka dot rocking chair, so we decided to get her a chair of her own for her birthday.  Now Stella wants a pink chair, too...
Wow!  This present from Mawmaw and Pawpaw is HUGE...
Cille was very excited about the gift, but unwrapping it was hard work...
She decided to start off with something smaller...
She loves her new beach towel!
Mawmaw brought dot-to-dot cards for the big sister...

Daddy found them quite challenging...






Dot-to-dot cards...fun for the whole family!
Even Cille got in on the act...
Stella also got some silly string.  Thanks, Mawmaw.  (Did the sarcasm come through in the typing?  Just checking.)

Gotcha!  No one was safe...

Once that big box was opened Cille helped assemble her gift...
Here she is supervising the project...

Checking to make sure it meets the safety code...
"It's good!"
Stella is quite the little roofer...
"Yep, it's straight!"
Taking pride in a job well done...
Cille really loves her playhouse...
Cille also started giving kisses a couple of days before her birthday.  Here she is planting a wet one on Stella...

After presents, we had dinner at La Carreta followed by birthday cake!
And a sip of lemonade...
Stella helped blow out the candle...
We have a strong suspicion that Cille is making this horrible face because she is allergic to dairy.  We'll visit the allergist and find out soon...

I told Damon to get chocolate cake...

Yuck!
I love how Damon is so involved with keeping the girls clean...
Who needs napkins?  Not Pourciaus!
The cake didn't magically regenerate.  These pictures are from a different camera...

Cille was very complimentary of our singing...

And she always shares....
