She survived another year...

That's right- someone in our family just turned...

Well, it was actually like 3 weeks ago but hey- I'm in a little late in posting. We had such a nice low key birthday. A homemade cake with my awesome cake decorating skills (as apparent from the picture above).
And an awesome not wrapped trike-bike for her to ride. Excuse her nakedness. In fact I took plenty of pictures but none of them actually had all the kids dressed. Hmm...interesting...
I just have to write about this little turkey. She:
*loves to copy the girls, even imitating them with her hands on hips
*likes to wrestle with "Bencer." It just recently changed from "Buddy" to "Bencer"
*Will not eat meals. She'd much rather raid the pantry for "tweets." In total desperation she'll climb up to the cough drops and swipe one for a sugar rush. What in the world???
*has such a sense of humor. How does she know how to be so funny already? She definitely takes after Cory in that regard.
*gives the best hugs. She even cups her hands around your neck.
*She likes to kiss my biceps- I mean where a normal person has a bicep. Mine is just extra skin and fat and bone. But that area of your arm she loves to kiss-a. lot.
*She puckers out her lips when you tell her to smile for pictures (as evident in the picture below)!

We just love this girl!!

Oh wow! She looks SO grown up! Holy moly! That is exactly how ALL my cakes look...;) Funny that your kids aren't "fully dressed." She is a cutie! Happy birthday!

I can't believe Avery is already 2! And Trevor is getting so big. Such cute kids....And I have been there with the hard night. Kelly travels every week for work (anywhere from 1 to 4 nights). It's like I'm a single mom again during those times. Hopefully the rest of the time went ok for you.
