an exciting day for all kinds of reasons! daddy came home while the kiddos were sleeping last night, it's thing 2's 2nd birthday, and all kinds of company should be coming for lunch!! but, first things first. presents!!
yep, there's a girl in there somewhere! this is where and how she wanted to open her presents, so let the wishes of the birthday princess be granted.
it's a good thing she was still thrilled with the presents, even if they weren't a surprise... mama was feeling kinda bad at this point, because we'd gone shopping for them a couple days earlier... and, she remembered exactly what was in the cart. shopping for birthday presents was one of the things on my list to do while daddy was home for a week in between 2 business trips, but those plans got changed. boo.
awwwwwwwwwwww! love to see these 2 be so sweet to each other. :)
she'd been asking for a backpack so she'd have one like brother. it took some convincing for her to take it off to get dressed before company arrived...
cupcakes - purple frosting with pink sprinkles, of course. sadly, i didn't get any pictures of her eating one or of any of our company. we had planned to grill out and eat outside, but as people arrived so did a big storm cloud. i guess the change of plans at the last minute successfully wiped all thoughts of pictures from my mind.
