Birthday Party #2

My little boy is 2! It's hard to believe how quickly time goes. What's more crazy is that I turned 30!!! We had a get-together with my parents and Garth's mom on Sunday to celebrate Derek and I. I was thrilled at how my #2 pencil turned out. Definitely my best kid cake!
Derek was so funny, he would NOT smile for a picture, he kept furrowing his brows at me. So we sang, he blew out his candles, then we heard sad sobs coming from the other room. Derek's cousin Payton (also two) had been practicing the Happy Birthday song all day and had missed it (dang those diaper changes!).
So we re-lit the candles and Payton sang to Derek. That put a big smile on his face!

I'm not sure how I feel about being 30. Obviously I don't feel any older but I don't like saying it. When I was in college and I met people that were 30, I thought they were pretty old. I'm that person now. . .weird.

I had a great day yesterday. Cami and Julie took me to lunch for my birthday. The best part was NO KIDS! We didn't have to hurry, we didn't have to cut up any food, we didn't nurse any babies while eating, we didn't listen to any whining, and we didn't go to McDonalds (we chose some spicy Thai food, yum!)

Great cake! May have to steal that idea... And happy birthday-my big one is this summer. And of course, you will be invited to come hang with us at the lake sometime. A big perk of this move!

That cake is amazing! I love the No. 2 idea and your skills are fabulous. I'm glad you had a good birthday and that you were able to snag some absolutely-kid-free time. It is strange that we are 30 this year...I feel exactly the same way you do about it. :) You seriously rock and I hope this year of life is your best yet!

I'm so glad you had a great birthday, Kace! I can't believe we are 30 this year! Time flies.

Happy 2nd birthday to Derek...he's looking so much more grown up! I absolutely LOVE the No. 2 pencil cake! Would you mind emailing me that recipe when you get a chance...you know, when you aren't running after your 4 kiddos! :)
