A Mellow Yellow Birthday

Most of you know my Granddaughter celebrated her second birthday four days after Christmas. This is Ms. Lily sitting on her birthday present. For those of you who aren't familiar with today's upscale electronic toys for tots this is the Vtech Ride and Learn Giraffe Bike.
It encourages learning through five modes of active play and teaches letters, counting animals and objects while using a LCD screen. Lily loved it. The morning after her birthday with all her Christmas toys and birthday toys around her it was the first thing she went to.
That little face she is making is directed to her Mommy just out of my camera range. Her Mommy had asked her to look at her so she could take her picture. Lily is saying 'cheese' through clenched teeth.
Oh yes, that cute little pink dress with the slice of birthday cake and remnants of dinner was from Grandma who found the original thirty-six dollar dress for eight bucks and almost DIDN'T buy it. It was worth every dollar - don't you agree!

She is so cute, "cheese" :)
I get in trouble spending money on grands. But I mean, when you find stuff like that dress at such a savings, :o)
Happy Birthed day again. Ms Lily

Can't go wrong with pictures of kids. Toy looks like fun and the dress is great... especially at that price. I just love a bargain.

Carletta; it is the best for grandparents to be able to participate in a positive way in their grand childrens lives. Your Lily is adorable.

What a wonderful mellow yellow, the toy giraffe and the dress are both great. Ms. Lily seems to be enjoying her new ride as she poses for the cameras. The dress is adorable.
