Today was the day of Eloise’s birthday party. Tomorrow she will officially be two years old. We planned a “Dora the Explorer” party for her and invited friends from church as well as others we have met in the last four months. We were excited to have friends over for fellowship! We knew she needed a good nap for her party, which was scheduled for 4:30-6:30 PM. After playing in bed for almost two hours I went in to find her standing up in bed happy as could be. Oh, well! No nap today, I guess! That’s ok! When she got up from her “nap” she was happy to find the apartment decorated with balloons and Dora the Explorer Party supplies (which were mostly collected for us by Ann-marie on their trip to the States this summer–they do not have Dora here in the Czech Republic). She has been really into the idea of party hats for birthday parties for some time now so she was excited to find some all ready for her. She gladly tried one on for a picture. The apartment was decorated and the food (mexican, of course, since it is a Dora Party) was on course to be ready. Eloise picked out this dress to wear.
We let her have a new Dora video we purchased for her birthday. She was happy to go watch it while she waited for the big party time to arrive.
