Two Part II

I think it takes almost as long to put together a blog post about a birthday party (one that will keep my long-distance family well-informed) as it does to prepare for the party itself.

Anyways. . . yes, I can believe that Sophie is two. Her two-ness has manifested itself since before Ivy was born. She's a complicated little girl, but what girl isn't? We love her, though, and she never ceases to make us laugh. Most days I wouldn't trade her for anything.

Joking. (sorta)

The Birthday Girl started out her special day opening presents from my family and eating waffles (with "boo-bah's" in them), per Sophie's request. Steve even skipped a class that morning so he could spend it with us. Aww.

Poor Ivy. Her time is coming soon. Next week, actually.

I threw this in so you could see a classic Sophie Morning Mullet. Her hair is crazy. So is she. About waffles. :)

When Steve got home from school, they got out the bubble machine that grandma sent her and played in the front yard.

Since I had to do a lot of food prep for the next day, we had pizza for dinner -- Sophie's favorite. Since she'd be getting cake the next day, we stuck candles in her pizza and sang to her.

Um, probably should have let the pizza cool off first.

The next day we invited some friends over to hang out. And help us eat some cake. A few things about these pics . . . the breeze kept blowing the candles out, so we kept relighting them. I think she got bored. . . Asher, the little blond headed boy helped her open her presents. Sophie didn't mind. She stood back, in the apron Asher's mom made for her, and watched. Those two are cute. Want an update on their relationship? . . . and yes, those are butterflies on her cake. I'll be posting about that soon (on my other blog).

It's a little choppy, but we got the essentials. :)

Happy Birthday Sweetheart!

She is adorable! Looks like a great party and I love the candle in the pizza. Classic.

The cake looks amazing...I can't wait to see more pictures of that!

First - I definitely agree that putting together blog posts takes a lot of time! (Especially when you are distracted by active little ones!)

It looks like you had a great time with her birthday. :) I loved the bubble pictures! Seeing that simple fun just makes me smile. You definitely have an eye for putting pictures together. :) And I predict she will have a great time with that chalk - my children love it! And I love them using it... as long as it doesn't go on the house, the neighbor's fence, or themselves... but it's great for cement! :)
