Happy Birthday Baby Girl

Today is my little girls 2nd birthday. It seems like it has all flown by so quickly, yet I can still remember parts of her special day like they were yesterday.
We had her party yesterday. For some reason, I never take my camera out and use it to capture the day. I think it's because as the mom I get to 'run' the party...so we let Daddy try out the camera (at least he'll know how to use it at the hospital after the little one comes).

Our party theme was 'cupcake party'. I used mostly lime green & hot pink for the decor.

What 2 year old doesn't like balloons?!? So we decorated with tons of balloons (well not tons, but 2 pacakges) including the huge ones with rubberbands attached. They make for interesting boxing matches.

The giant cupcake (a french vanilla, made with cheesecake pudding & homemade buttercreame & marshmellow fondant), surrounded by the little flower garden of smaller cupcakes (chocolate fudge cake).

A moment before the guests arrive with her favorite person in the whole world...Daddy!

And another with mommy & baby Gracie. She loves her lil' sister already (however, I look less than thrilled...hmmm...mental note, don't explain the camera while being the subject)

Playing with one of the giant balloons. She had so much fun chasing her friends and tearing through gifts, she fell asleep trying out her new chair and quilt, about 5 minutes after the last person left, and slept for 2 1/2 hours!
Happy Birthday Lil' Miss Anna Bug!
