The big 2!!!!!

Alli turned 2 on Feb. 2nd. I cant believe it!!!!!! She was soo happy and we all had so much fun. Usually its not that fun for the adults but I think we all had just as much fun.
Alli, Nora and I. Nora slept through the whole party.
Lexi, Alli and Ashlie. When Alli went to blow out the candle she wasnt quite sure what we were saying so she stuck her finger in the flame! Luckily she didnt get hurt but we all gasped!!!!!
Excited about her presents.

Our great friends and family.
Mr. Bently. He is in Alli's nursery class and is dang cute.
The cake. Alli loves littlest pet shops.
Yes she is two and the binky is still around!! Any suggestions. And dont tell me to cut them cause that just pisses her off.
Angelina Alli lips!

Alli's princess chair. Thanks Grandma Weetzi
The entertainment. We bought this at our neighbors and is now a permanent fixture in our home!

Wow, she's getting so big! For getting rid of the binky try Sabina Winder's blog. She just took her little girl off the binky. Looks like you all had a fun time!

Well looks like the party was a success! Loved her pink chair, and she is getting so big! Sorry, again, for not making it to her party. Looking forward to the ZOO!

I am somewhat of a blog lurker...don't worry there is a connection. This is Tiffany (Byington) in the same ward in Moses Lake, anyway, I heard a really creative way to get rid of the binky...I have an almost two year old and she has the same obsession. I haven't had the nerve to try this yet, but I just might. They nailed the binky to the wall or dresser or whatever so if the little girl wanted to suck on it she had to go stand there and suck on it while it was nailed to the wall, after awhile she got sick of having to stand there to use it so she just stopped herself. It might work, you never know. Good Luck! And maybe when you do find something that works share it with the rest of us!!!

Oh I also heard one lady tied the binky to the end of some helium balloons and let the little girl release them outside and they went bye bye forever....just some ideas.

your daughter is beautiful! I saw her a couple of times when you were in Moses Lake the same time I was visiting my parents and my mom and I always commented on how beautiful she was!

Happy Birthday Alli!
JoAnne -you look awesome for just having a baby!
Nora is a dolly!!
Can't wait to see you guys again!!
We are having a hard time with Brielle and her "fie". She is 3!! Bad I know-but it's a life saver sometimes!! With Jaron I cut the ends off -worked for him-With Mikenna -she never liked them; she is a thumb sucker-still sometimes-it is getting better though-obviously can't cut her thumb off. Sabina has also taken her kids to a toy store with all the binky's and had them pick out a toy and take the toy and binky's to the cash register lady and have the kid give the lady the binky's in exchange for the new toy. Brielle is going to be hard -she gets really ticked liked Alli. I wish you luck-wish me luck!!!! :)
