As you know, Little Bubs did great with Santa this year (check him out here and here). So I wasn’t surprised when we attended an Elmo party at the end of December that he didn’t mind taking a picture with the red monster:
(Yes, that is a very unfortunate photo of me – the gray sweater looks like a tent on me – and thus I look huge!) Lots of the moms were apprehensive that their little ones would run screaming and crying from Elmo, but not me. I was pretty sure JJ would be alright, and he was! Like one of the moms said, J is 2 for 2 (taking pictures with somewhat frightening characters – Santa and Elmo), now we just have to see how he does with the Easter Bunny!
It was a fun party – mainly because I got to spend time with lot of my mommy friends:
Love this last picture with Bubs pointing at the camera – he is all, I have my eye on you!
And the icing on the proverbial cake were the party favors – sugar cookies of Elmo’s head, as big as your (if you are a baby) head! Really!
And it was delicious – I love sugar cookies with icing on them! Yum! The birthday party circuit has calmed down, now that all of playgroup is in the single digits! I think it will start back up again, as some of the small folks will be turning 2 in the next few months!
