“I just think that giving a child a chance and sharing what you have with a child is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself, as well as a child.”  Hillary Clinton

We arrived at my Son’s today.  

I promised Chloe that we’d spend New Years with her, and have a fondue party.  We did that last  year at our home in Canada – she remembers it and wanted to do it again.  Since we didn’t spend Christmas with them, we opened presents shortly after we arrived.  I have to say that I think this particular present was perhaps the most special one I’ve received this year.  Her Mommy said that she did this all herself . . . no prompting from her at all.  She wrapped a sheet of stickers in kleenex, taped it up with more stickers, and wrote Grandma Beth on it.  I love it!  

Truly from the heart.

“The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree: the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other.”  Burton Hillis

This is baby girl’s second Christmas . . . she still doesn’t quite get what is going on but it sure was special for us to be here to experience her joy in “her party”.  She loved opening “her presents”.  She didn’t wake up until 8am . . . and even then was only interested in watching Dora on my iPad snuggled in bed with Papa G and YaYa.  By time Daddy and Mommy were up and moving around . . . we checked out stockings.  As per our tradition, we had our traditional Christmas Breakfast of Hungarian Bubble Ring, scrambled eggs and bacon before opening the regular presents.  I took this shot after all the presents had been opened, in the midst of the chaos.  She was more excited to rip the paper off the packages than she was in what was inside.  

So cute, and so much fun!  

The amazing thing about this shot is that both she and her Daddy are smiling . . . and at the same time!

“I think the word ‘cute’ was made up just for you.  You are cuteness redefined to a whole new level.  Happy Birthday to the cutest and sweetest 2 year old in the whole world!”  WishAFriend.com

Today is Baby Girl’s Second Birthday Party.  Her actual birthday is November 14th –  but the party was today.  We managed to get her down for a good nap prior to the party, and she woke up ready and eager to have fun!  I think she was a bit overwhelmed at first when everyone started showing up, but she soon got in to the swing of things.  She loved being able to go get chips from the food table, and chasing around with all the kids.  When it came time to open presents, she was such a little angel.  I love this shot of her oohing over a present.  I just don’t know how much more adorable a kid can get!  Mommy dressed her in her Halloween outfit (Shirley Temple) since she wasn’t home for Halloween.  This way everyone got to see her at her cutest.  

It was a great fun day, lots of family and friends, awesome presents and one little girl who navigated the whole event like the true Princess she is . . .

And we ate cake!  

Happy Birthday honey!
