I’ve learned, that as a parent, you sometimes go to great lengths for your kids. Often at your own expense. For example, this weekend, I stayed up until 4am to create a birthday cake for Ella’s 2nd birthday party (then got up at about 8 to finish getting ready for the party… but that’s besides the point!). She LOVED the cake, blew out the candles all by herself and then requested a piece of Elmo. I honestly think she just licked off the icing and didn’t eat any of the actual cake. She had a great time running around in the backyard with her cousins and playing in the sandbox. Her smile all day long made everything worthwhile 🙂

So without further ado, the cake creation…

Cookie Monster…


And the end result of eating Elmo!

All in all, it was a great day 🙂

Happy Monday!
