A little safety help from Poppi for this last BIG step

When you can't do it all with your finger, try your foot."
   
 
 
 
It's My BIRTHDAY !!!
 
Philip and Leslie planned a Tinkerbelle-themed birthday party for Kayli for her second birthday.  As you can see from the photo below, Philip and Leslie are quite creative.  Watermelon was part of the food that was served at the party, but even the rind was used.
 
A house for Tinkerbelle and her friends
 
There was even a Tinkerbelle birthday cake
 
Kayli has her first taste of her special birthday cake - and even ate a flower
 
All the decorations had a Tinkerbelle theme
 
All of Kayli's grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins were at the party

from Uncle Jason, Aunt Jennifer & Cousin Nathan

Kayli: "What? Smile for a photo first?  OK!  How's this?"
 
 
Kayli: "Can I help, Daddy?" 
 
Kayli: "Daddy says he has a surprise for me but I really don't know about this!"
 
Kayli: "Let me see if I've got this straight.  You want me to climb into that hole? I don't know ..."
"... and you want me to smile for a photo, too?  OK, here goes!"
   
 
Kayli: "If this is my surprise, I'm not impressed!"
 
Kayli: "Now that's much better!  Look, I'm Ariel the Little Mermaid!"
 
After all that hard work, Kayli and Daddy relax on the beach
 
Kayli: "It's too hot up here.  I'm headed down to the water where Mommy is."
 
Kayli: "Much better!"
 
All cleaned up and ready for some family photos

Kayli: "OK!"
 
Kayli: "Let's get in the water.  You, too, Mommy."
  
 
 
Kayli: "Oh, lookie - a really pretty shell"
 
Kayli: "Trust me, Daddy.  You're gonna love this.  It's just like suntan lotion!"
 
(Left) Kayli: "It's getting a little HOT out here"
(Right) Kayli: "MUCH better!"
 
 
Everyone cleans up and heads out for some dinner and Putt-Putt
 
Kayli: "Go in - Go in - Go in!"
 
Kayli: "Well, maybe I can help it just a little bit!"
 
Kayli: "I think I've got this one!"
 
The evening ends with some ice cream - the perfect way to end a day at the beach

Kayli: "They brought all my good stuff out today.  This is gonna be GREAT!"
 
Kayli: "Let me see - I need this - and a little sand and some water."

Kayli: "Great.  I'll have to show you how it's done so you can do it right"
Daddy: "Thank you, Kayli"
 
 
Kayli: "Mommy knows how to do it better!"

Elf - On - A - Shelf
 
Philip and Leslie used Elf-on-a-Shelf after Thanksgiving and until Christmas as a
daily reward system for when Kayli's behavior was good.  They named the female elf Sugarplum.
 
There was a message for Kayli on 28 November that said,
"Hi! My name is Sugarplum.  Santa sent me to keep watch and make sure you are being a good girl.  Each night I will travel back to the North Pole to tell Santa about your day, so make sure to look for me each morning.  I brought you a special book to read.  I hope you like it.  Santa says hello and to remember to be a good girl.  Love, Sugarplum"
 
On the first day, Sugarplum arrived from the North Pole in a hot-air-baloon
 
Each morning Kayli would look for Sugarplum
One morning there were bows and lights around the bathroom mirror
where Sugarplum had decorated the bathroom ...
  
 
... and another day she put stickers all over Tinkerbelle
 
 
On 02 December, Sugarplum left Kayli a message with building blocks
 
On 06 December, Sugarplum left Kayli a message on the white board.
It said, "Hey Kayli, You were such a good girl yesterday,
I made you a special necklace. Love, Sugarplum"
 
The necklace was made out of Fruit Loops so Kayli could even eat the necklace
 
On 07 December, Sugarplum left Kayli a special Christmas Card
on the mantle over the fireplace
 
On 13 December, Sugarplum left a message that said, "Happy Birthday Kayli's Mom"
and there were cookies for Kayli, Leslie and Philip
 
On 14 December there was a Christmas cookie and Christmas milk
 
 
 
On 15 December there was a new Christmas stocking for Kayli
and on 17 December there was a new photo of Kayli with her cousin Nathan
 
 
On 18 December Kayli saw where Sugarplum had taken a bath
 
On 20 December, Sugarplum left a funny picture of Daddy/Philip
with a red nose like Rudolph - Sugarplum and Kayli thought that was funny
 
 
 
Christmas Day at Poppi & Nonni Loftin's House
 
Kayli insisted on eating lunch beside Cousin Alexandria
 
After lunch, Kayli started unwrapping her Christmas presents
 
There were lots of pretty dresses from Poppi and Nonni
 
Lots more to open
 
From Uncle Brad, Aunt Beth, Savanna and Ali there was a
Disney "Frozen" Treasure Chest full of all sorts of goodies
 
Aunt Beth and Cousin Savanna offer a little help
 
Philip, Leslie and Kayli gave Poppi & Nonni a book with photos
of Kayli from her "second" year
 
Philip, Leslie and Kayli gave Savanna and Ali each a BIG box for Christmas
 
Each box was full of balloons
 
Some of the balloons had money in them
but you had to pop the balloons to get to the money
 
 
Before the day was over, Kayli had fallen asleep on Poppi & Nonni's couch
with dreams of Sugarplum Fairies and Christmas 2015
