Our Birthday Girl

Our Little Sprite Turned Two!
Choosing a theme for Sara's birthday was so easy. The only thing my little girl loves in this world more than her Mother (and maybe her Father...) are her baby dolls. They are her little family and she is such an attentive Mother. So a "Baby" party it was. As she is only 2 I didn't have to go all out yet with games, invitations and tons of friends. We invited the two families she loves most Judy and Kaitlyn and the Phillips family. Dave and I worked together (while playing Settlers of Catan) on her Baby Doll cake. I gave her the choice between a baby cake and baby cupcakes. She chose the cake, bless her heart, it was easier by far. I am pretty happy with how it turned out and even more happy with how simple it was.
Unfortunately when it came time to blow out the candles Sara didn't want to have anything to do with those scary flames. She loved the singing and is still singing happy birthday to herself every so often. But those candles no way. There was no amount of persuasion that was going to get her anywhere near those candles. So poor Mom didn't get the picture she had envisioned.
She loved opening her presents. Especially when her new baby doll from Grandma Wilcox started helping her along. We all had so much fun doting on our little caboose on her special day. I just can't believe my baby is now officially a toddler!

Happy Birthday Sara! What a sweetheart. I love the birthday banner in the background. I have had my eye on those and wanted to make one, but it hasn't happened yet.
