Happy Birthday Caroline!

Today Caroline turns 2! Can't believe it has already been 2 years, the time just goes by so fast now. It seems like she should still be a baby but she it totally not my baby anymore. She is so big and starting to talk a lot. She pretty much repeats everything you say and is starting to talk in short sentences. She also has learned some basic spanish that she likes to use all the time. She is such a girly girl, loves her dresses, earrings, hairbows, and most of all shoes.
We had her birthday party yesterday and it turned out really good. We did a bumble bee theme and she wore her Halloween costume. It is the cutest costume ever and she just loves it. Here she is right before the party started. Doesn't she look so big? (She is playing with her new earrings in the picture)

Here is my first attempt at making a birthday cake. It turned out better than I thought it would and the cupcakes were super cute also.
If you know me at all then you know I am not crafty like that so it's a complete suprise that I did this at all but I had such a great time doing it that I think I will start making their cakes every year.
The kids all painted their own pots and then planted flowers. It was a messy project but I think the kids had a great time doing it so it was totally worth it.

Painting their pots.

Yes, they are wearing trash bags over their clothes, but it's better than ruining clothes!

Taking a break from the party to walk Drake. She thinks Taylor's new puppy is the greatest thing ever and she asks for him at least 3-4 times a day. He is pretty darn cute.

Eli is concentrating sssoooo hard!

Caroline got new boots for her birthday and she had to wear them around for the rest of the day. They are pretty darn fabulous. Wish I had a pair!
Caroline loved when we all sang Happy Birthday, she has been singing it to herself all week and when everyone else started singing she was all smiles. When we finished singing she clapped and starting yelling "Yay". She also had to blow out her candles 2 times.
