Terrific 2's!!!

Grace recently turned 2 years old on April 22nd. This is also Earth Day which is so appropriate for my out-dorsey girl! The first thing she says when she wakes up is "Outside?" I guess after a long, cold, snow-filled winter I don't blame her.

We had a wonderful party, Barney theme, and had a great turn out! Wouldn't you know that about a week before her party she wanted nothing to do with Barney! Everything became Elmo or as Grace calls him "mo-mo"! However, mommy had to order all the plates, balloons, and Barney decor online since none of the party stores carry it so Barney the party was. She was excited still but luckily my friends and family are receptive and she got inundated with Elmo toys, DVD's, books, musical cards, etc! She was a very happy little girl!

The hit of the party, I must say, however was the trampoline. The kids had a blast jumping, flipping, dancing, and yes one even stripped down to her diaper to get down. Grace, despite the fact she didn't nap (she must have known something was up) did great and played on the trampoline till 8:30 at night till we had to drag her off of it to go head home.

Thanks to all my friends and family who helped me pull this off. Especially for the help to make all 60 cupcakes!

Happy Birthday to my little Angel! I can't believe God has blessed me so much by giving you to me! You are beautiful, funny, determined, and strong! I love you sooo much and love watching you grow up before my eyes! Just slow down a bit, I don't want you to grow up too fast! :)
