2

 It is official, we have a 2 year old.  The party was A LOT of fun.  I don't have editing sofware on the new laptop, so these are not that great, but you get the point.

Instead of doing just plain old cupcakes, and since ice cream was a little crazy in the middle of the winter.  I decided to make cupcakes in ice cream cones and then ice them to look like ice cream.  They turned out really cute, and were pretty good.

Chocolate covered pretzel sticks and the dum-dum and gumdrop trees.
 The tablescape.  I decided to instead of doing 'favors', we would do a little sweet bar, and let the kiddos take stuff home with them.  It worked pretty well and seemed to be a big hit with the kiddos.
 The marshmellow and peppermint topairy.  These turned out REALLY cute, and really weren't that hard, just a bit time cosuming!
 Kev wanted her to have a donut cake from a homemade donut shop in our town.  It turned out cute and was incredibly good!
 Rory's apron. 
 Before everyone got there and the party got started really well.  Sarah Grace and Victoria were there, and went to Gymboree with her that morning.  Once everyone got there, they (along with Charlie) hung out in the kitchen...you know, they are cool teenagers now.  Although, I hear that they were sad the whole way home because they missed us and wanted to stay (I did too...for the record, I don't care if they are 15...they are still MY girls.)
 The McClanahans.  Aubrey was so cute and had such a good time playing. 
 The 2 year old.  She did really well with everyone in her house.  She had just woken up from a nap and I went and got her dressed and when we came out of her room, she was a bit over whelmed, she warmed up pretty quick though and had a good time.
 Rory, Mia and Maci...and Woody.  She didn't know what to do with the candle, Mia and Maci blew it out for her.


 PRESENT TIME!!!!!
 Look at Brock and Rory.  They were sitting there and just put their arms around each other.  It was pretty cute.  They really do love each other.  When Brock got there, I was getting Rory dressed, he was looking all over the house for her.  He is so protective of her.
 Aubrey and Maci, partaking in a 'spot of tea'.
 The girls and their tea pots and Belle. (Thanks Candi, Wes and Aubrey...she took her to bed and is currently napping with her.)
 Trying on her dress up garb from Jason, Stacey and Brook.
To think that this day, 2 years ago, we were 20 minutes from meeting Rory.  Now, here we are, 2 years later and we just can't believe what a joy she is.

Happy Birthday, my sweet girl, happy birthday.

What a great party! I'm so sorry we missed it. We were still kind of a mess Saturday morning and after just getting over a stomach bug I didn't think you'd appreciate a cold bug, too. :) It looks like everyone had a wonderful time!!

We had a great time! So glad Rory liked her Belle doll :) Everything turned out so well and was really good!

If possible could you email me a copy of the picture with Aubrey, Rory, and Maci having tea? It's just too cute :)
