Last week when we asked her what she would like to do for her birthday she started naming off the college students - she wanted them to come over. So we had a little celebration for her Sunday night during our college group meeting. It was complete with a dining table covered in paper for coloring . . .
. . . and a pin-the-tail-on-the-monkey game.
This is Gaber. He is a pre-med student and is a really great guy. And he is also a good sport. See the look that Eliana is doing? Well, she has been going through a phase of trying to figure out what is "funny." So a while back Matt taught her a couple of faces she could make that will almost always get a laugh.
And Gaber was willing to join in.
. . . with both of the funny faces. . .
Ok so this last face is how Eliana tries to make herself go cross-eyed. Every now and then we'll be at the grocery store and she'll try it out on a kid in a nearby shopping cart. Makes me laugh every time! (Though the other kids usually look pretty confused.) Sheesh what are we doing to our kids?! Hmmm. . .helping them develop a good sense of humor, that's what I tell myself.
Man I love this kid! And I love being her mom!
Happy Birthday Sweetheart!!
