An Elmo party for our Two-year-old

Way back in March, when we were discussing G-Bear's desires for her birthday cake, Buddy Bear impressed us all by announcing his choice for his birthday theme:

"Mommy, Mommy!  Gee, gee, gee.  ELMO cake!"

Yes, our little man made it very clear that he was hoping a certain furry friend would grace his birthday cake.  He has been talking constantly about it ever since.  So, naturally, we had great fun this weekend celebrating our Buddy Bear with a little Elmo party.

Yes, the table cloth is a bed sheet that we inherited from MoMo and Papa.  It worked quite well, don't you think?  The Elmo cupcakes turned out okay, in spite of my lacking artistic talent.  Fortunately, Buddy Bear was excited and impressed, and that is all that mattered to me :)

Buddy Bear LOVED opening his birthday presents.  Thanks to MoMo and Papa, Aunty Cindy and Nana for the wonderful gifts!

Our buddy didn't eat a bite of his dinner.  He was too excited about the cupcakes sitting RIGHT in front of him!  Perhaps that was poor planning on my part.  Instead, he danced to the Sesame Street background music while we ate pizza and salad.  Good thing he was the birthday boy!  He was plenty excited about getting back in his seat for dessert, however.

Buddy Bear had been practicing his candle-blowing skills all day, showing people how he was going to do it, so of course, he did a great job!  His candle was blown out even before we finished singing "Happy Birthday!"  Dude wasted no time diving into his cupcake:

We had to try that picture a second time:

Can you tell we are crazy about this little guy and his BIG personality?!

 By the end of the evening, our Buddy Bear was exhausted.  He had missed his nap for the day and couldn't wait to jump in bed.  "Happy, happy..." he would say over again throughout the night, recounting to us that it was a happy birthday.

Thanks for sharing your special day with us, Buddy Bear.  And thank you for two wonderful years.
