Birthday Girl!




Well, I knew it would happen someday, but its hard to believe that Layla is 2 already. Her actual birthday isn't until tomorrow, but we had the party on Sunday. It was great! My friend Amanda and I picked out her gaudy outfit and accessories, and we ordered this cake from Coldstone creamery.

It was chocolate chip ice cream with chocolate cake and a chocolate ganache topping.
Definitely a huge hit!





We also got some of the cupcakes so Layla could have one all to herself! She had a great time.


Her favorite gifts were her block set from our neighbor downstairs and her rocking horse. Don't tell her, but we got it used on Craigslist! Its neighs and wags its tail when you press its ears.
The Hello Kitty pajamas were a mail-in gift from my mom in Illinois.

I was just excited that we actually know enough people now to even have a party!

Aww! Happy Bday Layla!

Love the cake... looks yummy! Kalila got a horse too, not a rocking one but a huge stuffed one that she bounces on lol. Is one of her fav's too.

two already?! where does the time go?

Do you think they would have a rocking horse my size? Actually thinking about it..... do they have those mega cool pjs in my size? (my new baby pink ones with spots make me look like a crumpled bag of smarties - not a cool look!)

@Ahavah, Funny, my husband and I were talking about how fun it would be to have an adult-sized springy horse, like the one I had as a kid :)
As for the other one, they do have pjs like that I think at the Sanrio stores where they sell the Hello Kitty stuff. I'm not sure where their locations are in the UK though. They make footie pj's in adult sizes too. We should all get a pair!

Happy birthday to Layla! The Lord has allowed you to live two full years. May you come to know and love the Lord from a young age, having your mind filled with his Word! May He bless you and keep you, may He make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you, may He turn His face toward you and give you peace :)
