Two

Braided gold and pinafore-clad.

There is no limit to the joy shared in this household today, for our girl- our delightful, scrumptious, precious girl- turned two today. She ran and hid behind the couch when Daddy and brothers' raucous version of "Happy Birthday" frightened her, and she had to be coaxed into *tearing* the wrapping paper from her gifts. (After all, Mama says don't tear!)

But after pink cupcakes with pink frosting that brought such delight to those green eyes, we ended the day with our very favorite activity- family worship. Big girl ran to join her brothers for their action song, and Daddy and Mama leaned close...Two years old...how can it be?



Dress and pinafore made by Auntie Abbie.

So thankful. So thankful.

His,


P.S.-I'm over here, too...

Oh Elise, she is ever so sweet. The braids.. and the pinafore... and the precious little girly face... I can't believe she's two already!
Happy birthday, precious Eliana!

Happy Happy Birthday!! Those braids are the cutest, it would be a small miracle to get Eve to sit through a french braiding session!

Oh Elise,

She is adorable with those braids and that dress. The perfect adornment for her cute little self. :)

Happy birthday to Eliana!

Elise said...

Seven Brides for Seven Brothers! She loves the movie, but I don't like to have it on as much as she would like, so we bought the soundtrack.
She was a dancing fairy tonight, clapping and giggling! :)

Oh Elise how truly blessed you are. She is delightful. Happy Birthday from the Chenault's!

Precious! And happy birthday Eliana! Perhaps my Chloe will have enough hair for braids at two. Emma certainly didn't. Beautiful little dress too.

Happy birthday, sweet girl! Elise, I can't believe it's been 2 years already! I'm honored to have been there to see your boys greet her for the 1st time. They were so cute trying to remember her name :-). Merry Christmas!

Wow. I can't get over how much hair she has!!! Wow. I'm doing pretty good to get a couple of pig tails in Kristina's hair!

She is so beautiful. OOOHHH! THANK YOU GOD FOR FAMILIES! The love is so great, you'd think we would burst!

Can't wait to see you, Lord willing, next summer.

Happy 2nd B-day, Eliana! Such a big girl now! You and Ella are almost exactly 6 months apart...if only we lived closer-I know you'd be great playmates!

Those are the sweetest pics ever!

Sigh. Can she be two already? What unspeakable joy mixed with that pang of time flying too quickly, you must feel. I am blowing a late birthday kiss to that precious sweetheart. Oh - cherish every moment as I know you do!
