McKenna's Birthday

We celebrated McKenna's 2nd birthday earlier this month!


We indulged her balloon obsession.


The butterfly cake was a great success thanks to the advice I got from James' Mom: Freeze the cake just before frosting it and it won't crumble. Thanks, Ma!




Opening Presents.





McKenna got: Some Little Miss books, (Thanks, Nana and Grandpa!) a shopping cart, a see and say, the little mommy playset with a baby, and some play food.



My Mom came over later in the week with some more presents! A piano with a microphone from Grandpa Brown and Grandma Jane, and a trike from my Mom. She loves them both!

She is so stinkin' cute! I can't believe she is already 2! I remember when we started visiting teaching you she was just a little thing. Crazy!

Awesome cake! I'm impressed. That is exciting that your little girl is already two. Do you know what the new baby will be?

Amy said...

I agree about the cake, very cool! I also love that retro tricycle with room for her big brother to stand on back. :)

I wish balloons made me that happy... I think that is how I feel about food! They are growing up so fast, it's fun to watch - you're such a great family!!

What a cute girl! It goes so fast, huh? I love the tip about the cake. I'm yet to experiment with cutting shapes out. I'm going to give it a try. Thanks!

Marianne, I just read your comment. Hang in there. Sorry you had such a rough night. I've definitely had those moments, where I'll discipline and take care of things, and then, I just break down and lose it. Luckily, we get another shot the next day and the sun comes up again. Hope things are going better.

Oh yeah, I'm sure that's where she got it from! Congrats on the pregnancy by the way!
