picture prepping

Before we started with family pictures, I was taking pictures--because that's what I do! Thanks to Uncle Alex and Auntie Kitty for keeping Bear occupied while I...tested the light, framed the pictures, and generally just didn't have to occupy Bear. ;)

The 4 year old little mermaid

We celebrated Elara's 4th birthday party with an underwater themed party. Little mermaid cake and decorations thanks to Grandma Elaine, cucumber carvings thanks to Uncle Samer, worms and fishies thanks to Nonna, and a joint effort from all the Aunts and Uncles to decorate the dining room to look like we were swimming all through dinner. Elara has already changed her mind about her next birthday party theme multiple times--everything from Hello Kitty to Wedding themed, since we are going to be in Colorado for Uncle Ben and Auntie Alaina's wedding right before her birthday. (She's hoping they'll share the "wedding place" with her!) I am going to have to get her to commit to one theme soon.
