Poe Turns Two

Yesterday was Poesy's 2nd birthday.  We invited some friends over to help us celebrate and made that little gal feel as special as possible.  She chose donuts over cake, I made cardboard playhouses for the kids, Hope made a heart-felt gift (no surprise there), and there was a confetti free-for-all at the end.
I can't believe how fast time is going this time around, but I know that it's my job to make these moments count.  Second birthday = success.

(The dress I'm wearing will be at Emerging Thoughts soon!)

  43. She looks so excited! I remember being SO obsessed with confetti after being allowed to throw it for a New Year's party at a family friend's house. I always wanted to make it and come up with an excuse for a party so we could throw some. :)

    Also, I always chose donuts over cake when I was a kiddo! There was a donut shop (actually down the road from where I live now) that used to make wonderful donut cakes. They were actually made from donut dough with donut icing (the BEST) and were SO YUMMY. Unfortunately they have closed, and last year Phil called all the donut shops within a 30 minute drive time, and NOBODY makes them any more! Sadness. You should look into it in your area and see if anyone makes them! :)
