Zoe’s Birthday Party (and pictures of Ruthie too)

>I haven’t been able to sit down until today to post pictures from Zoe’s birthday party from Saturday (her real birthday was actually Monday) and it went well!  We surprisingly were able to fit the whole family in here.  Anyway, here are some pictures!

Here’s Zoe opening her first present; this one came from Grandma, Grandpa, Aunt Shayla, Aunt Melissa, Uncle Devin & Cousin Aidan.  This is a Diego knows your name doll; basically it comes with a CD and a USB cable so you can install the software and he’ll say the child’s name and a bunch of other stuff when we program him, when the party was over we asked Zoe what present she liked the most she said, “Diego”.  Go figure.

Here’s Zoe opening her “My Little Pony” from Uncle Luke and his fiancee Jessica and her two kids Cirena and Barret.  Cirena was eyeballing the pony; so we know what SHE likes.

Here’s Zoe opening her Disco Dancing Wubbzy.  She saw me looking at it online and wanted it, so we got it for her birthday.

Here’s her with the Wubbzy on the TV stand.  You push his foot and then he dances.  It’s awesome, he can even do headstands and stuff, and if he falls forward, he goes “Ow, my nose help me up” or something similar, it’s great.  Way cuter than those evil Elmo dolls.

Here’s her snuggling her other presents.  She wanted not only Wubbzy, but his two friends too.  I went and searched online and found out they make Beanie Babies of the dolls, so we got her the full set.  I had it in a bag, and when she took the tissue paper out of the bag to see what was inside, she stared at them for a second, and then ran to Jeff and hid her face in his lap.  I’m not sure why she was so embarassed, but I think it might be due to the fact that she REALLY wanted these, and she got them and was super happy about it.

Here’s the cake!  This is actually an icecream cake from Coldstone Creamery.  And it was a GREAT deal too!  It’s a cheesecake icecream cake with strawberry syrup and yellow cake.  I’m not a fan of the frosting flowers, so I had them decorate it with strawberries instead, and then had them do the graham cracker crumbles around the sides, because what’s a cheesecake without some form of graham crackers?  The cake was so delicious and I still have some in the freezer that I’m planning on eating later. MMM.

Here’s the cake again, but with the cupcake in icecream cones I made to go with the cake.  All strawberry.  I personally wasn’t a fan of them, but the kids ate them right up, and even when one was left half eaten on Zoe’s little table, Ruthie crawled over and finished it.  Whatever, she enjoyed it and I wasn’t about to take it from her and have her start her crying.  Besides, it’s just practice for her birthday in 2.5 months!

Here’s Zoe pulling a “What’s going on?” face as we were singing happy birthday to her.  She loves to run around the apartment and other places and sing “Happy Birthday”, but gets confused when we sing it to her apparently.  The look on her face is priceless.

And here’s her dressed up in her last present from Uncle Andy, Aunt Camie, and Cousins McKenzie, Kade, Ella & Parker.  They were late because of the famous U of U vs BYU game. (The U of U won that one) and she LOVED her dress up stuff.  She also got some little shoes too.  We know what Santa’s bringing her for Christmas.

And for your enjoyment, here are some pictures of Ruthie.  The first one was done at Zoe’s party, and the last three were at Jeff’s parents’ house the next day.  And yes, the girls have identical shirts.  Jeff’s idea and not mine.

Anyway, tomorrow’s Thanksgiving, so I hope you all have great turkey days!
