One month ago today our little munchkin turned 3!!
Here are the photos from her party...that was also 1 month ago....I'm not going to comment about these being a month late because honestly, I'm impressed with myself for getting them up before Thanksgiving...
Eleni and Apostolis with their noise makers,
not that they needed them,
they're very good at making a lot of noise without them...
Our little friend Barbara (pronounced var-VAR-a in Greek)
A new friend on the left, with her mommy Sofia
Danai on the right, Eleni's very good friend who had her 3rd birthday Friday
and is having her big birthday bash today....Eleni is WAY excited...
Apostolis finding ways to make noise makers even noiser
Well done bud!
I see a future career path emerging...
Cousin Maria in back
Elenaki with Yorgia
by some miracle,
sleeping peacefully through all the noise and chaos
Michaela and her red balloon
Theia Eleni (Aunt Eleni) with Yorgia
...Olympia is still snoozing
Aaaaand our usual battle...
"Eleni, can you take a nice picture with mommy? Look at Baba and smile!"
So then I try to make her laugh....
And as usual, I remind myself that Eleni dances to the beat of her own drum
and I give up the fight
Who needs boring old posed photos anyway?!
Blowing out her candles to the Greek version of Happy Birthday
Oh look! Olympia decided to join us finally!
She must have smelled chocolate cake...
that always wakes me up too
Yorgia and Olympia with Maria
We light the candles again and sing Happy Birthday in English
What a lucky girl, getting to blow out the candles twice every year...
that's TWO wishes every year!
And now, we're off to Danai's birthday party!
Gaga and Papa, get ready for a high speed, sugar filled chat on Skype later....it should be interesting!
