She's two... boo hoo!

Shortcake is TWO today and I'm having a hard time admitting it. She has grown up SO fast!

It was actually a really anticlimactic birthday because we had her party on Sunday, but she partied enough on Sunday to make up for it :)

Warming up the crowd.

My first attempt at a three layer cake. It turned out ok, but I got the icing too runny and I had to put it in the freezer to keep it from collapsing.

Her first look at her cake. She looks a little suspicious for some reason.

I got so caught up in making decorations and the cake that I forgot candles! Lame, I know... So what did we do? Substituted matches instead. We are well aware of how redneck that sounds :)

Present time. This girl LOVES books!

She was so excited about the book that she didn't want to move onto other presents.

She got a color Magna Doodle. She was really excited about it. She has played with it every day since.

She got a Disney princess doll, Sleeping Beauty. Did you know that Sleeping Beauty's name is Aurora? I do now! I told her that her doll is a princess, so since then she has started saying "princess."

The last gift we brought out was this little furball. She was so excited. She absolutely loves dogs, loves!

Walking her new "pet."

I love this picture. She is a happy girl!

She decided to try on Aurora's shoes. The girl is obsessed with shoes.

She then decided to try and put Aurora's shoes on CH. Not sure how I feel about those tiny pink flats with black dress socks! But it was fun game.

Speaking of shoes, she got some adorable light up tennis shoes. She had to model them right away. She had plenty of helpers and admirers.

She's getting one more present, but she'll have to wait until February!

Shortcake will be getting a new nickname- Big Sister!!! We are thrilled. She doesn't seem to share our enthusiasm yet. I think we have conditioned her to say "no" to the questions because we laugh at her. She just seems so sure of herself when she says it, but I am convinced that will all change. She's going to be a great big sister. I just know it!


  1. congrats!! so exciting! she will do fantastic...my kids LOVE having each other :)

  2. Thanks Kelli! I hear there's another little boy joining your family soon :) Congrats to you too!

  3. Wish we could have been there to celebrate with you! Although I'm pretty sure Landon probably would have been afraid of the dog since he was scared of Elmo :)

  4. Tracy, I know that she would've LOVED to have had Landon there!
