As usual we had a houseful and it was only our family. There were 19 of us (including little Lawson) wishing Molly a very happy 2nd birthday.
Here are some pics from the party. And also, let me add that parents who throw actual birthdays complete with family and friends and other two year old children and food and games and party favors are amazing to me. I don't know how or frankly why they do it, but I think it is amazing.
Molly asked for a bear cake and this is what she got! Obviously J and I won't be opening a cake shop anytime soon, but Molly loved it. We used a 10 inch pan for the body, 8 inch for the head and made cupcakes for the ears and paws. It took two cake mixes which was nice because I was able to make a white and a chocolate cake. J used a fork to make the frosting look like fur.
Trying to get a picture of the girls before the party was near impossible. Getting a picture of them smiling was impossible. They are making their funny faces here.
Birthday girl opening a singing, cupcake birthday card. Probably the biggest hit of the party. After she opened it she ran over and gave my mom the biggest hug ever. It was pretty presh. She also is in love with her Dora guitar. We had to make a little adjustment to the guitar to make it not so loud, but Molly hasn't noticed.
