Can you believe this girl turned TWO over the weekend?
You remember that day when I introduced her to you, right? You know, yesterday.
Except that yesterday was two years ago.
Oh how we love this girl! We are celebrating a joint birthday for the little girls in a couple weeks, closer to Gianna's birthday. We still had to at least do a bit of celebrating to mark her entrance into this big world.
With a birthday on the Feast of the Presentation, how could we not eat and celebrate one way or another?
I prepared Breakfast Enchiladas for brunch after Mass.
It was a HUGE hit and I highly recommend it as it's super duper easy!
Mommy and Daddy looking quite a bit different than two years ago. Maybe we've aged well. Perhaps.
Up until the last minute I really had no idea what I was going to do for her cake.
Poor 4th child.
All I knew was that I had bought cake mix (again, bad mom) and a bag of Valentine colored M&Ms that I was somehow going to use. No, it was not going to be a very Pinterest-y birthday with theme and matching, but hopefully she doesn't care too much.
We ended up inviting Margaret's Godparents and their girls over for impromptu cake after brunch.
We'll catch the grandparents and maybe a few other family members in a couple weeks at the actual party for both Margaret and Gianna.
Do I sound like I'm feeling guilty at all here?
(Who gave this woman her Mom Badge? Clearly, not well earned in the bday dept.)
She looks like she enjoyed it, don't ya think?
I ended up feeling inspired (if you can call it that) and had Gianna help me separate the M&Ms by color before Mass. I then whipped up the Two Ingredient Buttercream Frosting that I now swear by and we had that cake all decorated by 8 am before shuffling off to Mass.
It was yummy, if I do say so myself.
The afternoon was pretty uneventful with only a quick nap for the Birthday Princess and her royal sister.
The older kids were gone with dad snow tubing with their 4-H group, so it was just me and the girls holdin' down the fort.
What an afternoon to hang out in the kitchen and
make a huge mess have a blast with Playdoh.
And now I have two TWO year olds in my house for the next 15 days.
If the next two weeks are anything like the last month, they will be living up to their newly coined name:
The TWO Toddler Tornado Twins.
Yup, it will be gettin' real up in here.
Hang on mama.
