To the Sour Cream Chocolate frosting of course!
While the Cat is away the Girlie Mice eat chocolate! Dada is not a big fan of feeding Eli chocolate, but how can I deny her Sour Cream Chocolate Frosting???
Maybe I’m setting her up for a sugar addiction or root canals or chocolate therapy or just maybe culinary greatness! If Eliana turns out to be a bookwormish engineer I will be the most surprised. I’m certainly raising her to love all my favorite things: cooking, sewing and the arts!
This is the daintiest cupcake bite I’ve ever seen.
And like any responsible sous chef, she helps with the clean-up!
We got to visit Coco’s Lil Sis, the Tiny, the Lovely…Carys! Unlike some babies, Carys was in a big hurry to see the world and meet her Mama. She was 2 whole weeks early! Eliana looks a little worried that I may be getting funny ideas about babies…nope! You are all the baby I can handle right now!
And here is Coco with her sassy new do’! We can’t wait to play with you again!
Eli and Coco hadn’t seen each other in 3 kid years (3 weeks) so they were a little hesitant to touch but they will warm up to each other soon!
The following day we had an impromptu visit from Abuela and Nancy from Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Ajuuuua! Eliana impressed them both with her very fine motor skills.
Thanks for the fun memories!

What is a Girly Girl to do if she wakes up to this at her grandparents’ house??
First thing: Bypass all loved ones and greetings…
Second on the agenda: Run inside and squeal with glee!
And last but not least: Wield Girly Girl Power to get Papa in said fairy castle!
And logically speaking what’s a fairy tale castle without a princess in a pink fluffy dress?
And to make her joy complete, an easel! And because all good fairy tale princesses sweep and mop, maybe for her birthday Eli will receive a mop and broom!
I am determined to finish my holiday blogging even if it’s 2011! We spent Christmas morning in Katy with my parents and it was fun to wake up with the expectation of gifts, since I grew up opening them on the 24th. But Eli will open hers on the 25th!
Eli got lots Boppys (rabbits) and furniture for her dollhouse! Everyone enjoyed playing with her stuff!
And here is Eli exerting her Girly Girl Power to make her Abuelo (Papa) color in her new Rapunzel coloring book. This was also a Christmas miracle since I have never seen my dad color! LOL!
And here are the Piña Smith cousins! Two girlies and one very handsome prince! Edson is the sweetest boy ever! He likes to randomly and continually give Eli quick hugs, that’s probably why she loves him so much!
