Cille's BirthDAY Party!

Cille's birthday fell on a Saturday this year and since our new house wasn't quite party ready we invited our friends to join us at Lindsey's Bouncing Tigers in Baton Rouge for some second birthday fun!  We felt very special that so many of them made the long trek from LaPlace to BR just to celebrate Cille's special day.  Cille was super excited to see Mrs. Emily...
 And she and her friend Skyler had a great time playing together...

 Does it look like this kid is a little familiar with someone shoving a camera in his face?
 This one too...
 Our cousin Cade was able to come!  We had a great time at his bouncing party last year...(Somehow his big sister escaped my camera!)
 Triple Threat!
 This is how Emily keeps her arms in such great shape...
 Lacie and Tucker...poor Tuck was not feeling his best at the party, but he still looked cute as a button...
 Reid was nearby having a great time with Lilly and Raelynn...

 Cille loves her some Molly Jane!
 We all do!
 Reid says all you need to be happy in life is a noonie and a pair of loving arms...
 Evans reminds me so much of my cousin D.J.  when he was little...
 I'm not really sure what was happening here.  Sometimes you just don't know with these two...

 Skyler looks very serious, but he was having lots of fun, I promise...



 Yum!  Cheese pizza with no cheese!  Cille's favorite!


Cille was singing "Happy Birthday" to me and Daddy...


Two years deserve two cakes, right?  With a side of soybean ice cream...which Cille hated!
It took our whole family to blow out the candle...

Stella assisted with the candle icing removal...
Then she generously dipped her finger into every different variety of frosting that she could find and allowed her sister to sample them all...
Grown-up sisters...
I forgot to bring a blindfold for our "Pin the Nose on Elmo" game, but Cille was determined not to be a cheater...


They're all so honest!  What great parents they must have!

Oooh! Presents!

Cille loved shaking this shirt from Grandpa Crane...
Skyler just wanted a balloon...
Thanks to everyone who made Cille's day so special!  If you'd like to see some pictures of the last time I was pregnant and celebrating a second birthday, you can check out the pictures from Stella's second birthday party here.  Cille was the stowaway that time!

Daddy-Daughter Date Night

The night before Father's Day our local Chick-Fil-A sponsored a Daddy-Daughter Date Night.  I can't take credit for this one; Mawmaw found the activity and signed up Daddy, Stella, Cille and Pawpaw.  Pawpaw had to be roped into the occasion because Stella absolutely loathes double dates and refuses to share her daddy.  When we go out to eat as a family, Stella always suggests that Cille and I ride in a different car and sit at a different table so that we don't interrupt her "date."  I didn't hear Pawpaw complaining about the arrangement for the night.  We took a few pictures of the happy couples before they set out for their adventure...

Stella was even gracious enough to allow Mawmaw into a picture...
Sassy pose! (Where does she come up with this stuff?!)
When they arrived at the restaurant, attendants were on hand to help the girls with hair and make-up.  I can't take credit for any of the pictures from the restaurant.  I stole them all from Chick-Fil-A's Facebook page...
 Checking out her paint job...
 Isn't she gorgeous?
They couldn't possibly...
 ...look at the camera at the same time...



 Making their selections...
 So happy together!
