Elin was so exited when she woke up and found out it was the day of her birthday party! She kept saying, “Birth de party” and “two” over and over. She was so excited and wound up that she would not take a nap! The party was at 2pm. In order to get a good nap in before hand, it would have been an early one for her. Therefore, right before the party was about to start, she started acting sleepy and testy, but when she saw her tea set all set up and her guests started arriving, she perked right up.
I was so excited for her to see her big gift this year which was a pink kitchen set. She loved it and has been enjoying it! I love this picture of her on her tip-toes checking out the stove.
This tea set was a birthday gift she got on her actual birthday. You can never have too many tea sets! She was so cute getting tea ready before anyone got to the party.
Elin was excited to see her best gal pal, Kelsey. They are about 2 weeks apart in age and it’s so fun to see them grow up together.
Elin was amazed by her teapot cake! I have to admit it was quite the cake! I think the look on her face says it all! I had a special cupcake made for to eat and I was thrilled when she ate a decent amount of the icing! It was definitely a step up from last year when she refused to try her cake!
Elin received so many lovely presents for her birthday. One extra special gift was a baby doll. She loves her new doll and all the little accessories that go with the doll. We have yet to name the baby so we just call her dolly for now.
Elin’s cousins, Max and Ethan were good sports going along with the tea party theme even though it’s not their bag.
I love this hug captured! Even though no words were exchanged at the time I imagine that Elin was thanking Kelsey for her lovely gifts and Kelsey was wishing her a happy birthday and many more years of friendship.
I also love these shots of Elin’s and her cousins. Ethan is 9 and Max is 5.
