Celebrating Our 2 Year-Old

We are so lucky to have the most supportive, loving family. When the weekend of Jimmy's birthday rolled around I threw together a last minute simple little party and invited Jimmy's favorite people. It was a day filled with lots of family, balloons, chips & pizza, cake & ice cream, pop, toys, wrapping paper and lots of love for our little boy. He now has more toys than he knows what to do with, but he sure is enjoying them.

After his bath he had fun running around wearing his puppy towel like it's a superhero cape.

The morning of his party I had myself a nice to-do list... I have a terrible habit of saving everything for the last minute, so to-do lists and large cups of coffee got me organized and on the ball.

 Speaking of "on the ball," the night before I had decorated his cake. Jimmy loves base ball, and I had this brilliant idea to braid twizzlers and make a round cake look like a base ball. I woke up the next morning to this:

Sad, right? If I had saved myself more time I might have cried over it. But I very tediously tried to remedy it and if you don't look too closely at the smudged and patchy looking frosting it does somewhat resemble the baseball I had envisioned.

The important thing is that it tasted good.

Had to pause for a quick little squeeze before the fun began. Poor child had to be working on his two-year molars on his special day. But he didn't let them ruin it for him.

 I'm not sure what I love more about this photo... The natural way he held his new toy rifle, or the proud smile of his daddy in the back ground. He is his father's son.
