Not sure what's going on...and definitely not liking the "happy birthday" song
Good thing we practiced blowing out candles the night before
Who needs forks?
Mmmmm, so yummy!
Playing with some of our new toys

Ella loved ripping the paper off, but didn't really care what was inside
Perry opening some presents
Luca has this sippy cup thing figured out already
Balloons are way more exciting than presents
We went to Kiddie Kandids for 2 year portraits of the girls
We wanted all 3 of them together, but P&E wouldn't cooperate...so Luca got his own picture
Back home with the "big" present from Mommy and Daddy
It was hard to figure out how to push the pedal and steer at the same time!
Perry wouldn't put her hands on the steering wheel

The big girls watching Curious George
Whittle Shortline Train Station
There were 3 small train tables and a big one
P&E playing with the trains

Perry and the trains
Ella and the trains
Luca with Mommy and Daddy
*Our Nikon broke (2 days before the 1 year warranty was up) so it
had to be sent off to be fixed.
Until then, we are using our lesser quality Canon so please forgive the blurry pictures :)
Thanksgiving at Grandma Teppie's

Luca and Great Grandma Teppie
Everyone watching some Backyardigans (of course)
More Luca and Granny time
Finders keepers on the snacktrap, right Mom?
Taking a nap with Grandpa...and hanging out with Grandma
Luca in his cute sweater hoodie
(He was VERY tired at this point...but this serves as proof that he *does* get cranky...it doesn't happen very often though)
Dinner at Grandma and Grandpa Rogan's

Perry is more interested in the juice box than the food
Luca using his leg to hold up the bottle
Daddy and Perry
Mommy and Ella
Perry experimented with some new ways to go down the slide
Ella wants the camera...a future photographer?
Just to show how long Ella's hair is when it's wet/straight
(and yes, she's washing Perry's back)
Ella LOVES baked ziti
Perry loves to run around
Is this all he ever does?
"Decorating" the Christmas tree
Mommy demonstrated hanging an ornament on the tree
and apparently they thought ALL the ornaments had to go in that spot
I have to write this story here b/c I know the blog gets overlooked and this is TOO cute:
Dave and I put the tree and lights up on Sunday, so the girls and
I decided to finish decorating it Monday night before dinner.
I grabbed a chair from the kitchen to stand on to put the garland on and Ella promptly went over and grabbed her Little Tikes chair.
She wanted to be just like Mommy and help put the garland on the tree. She did a fantastic job!
