We had a bar-b-que on Saturday night with family and a few friends to celebrate Madelyn's 2nd birthday and Michael's 4th birthday! We're pretty sure that they'll be doomed with joint birthday parties for the rest of their lives (or maybe triple now that their new cousin is here), but they'll live. ;) It's convenient, and fun, and they're kids! Get them together with their favorite people (okay, or just their grandparents ;) and they're happy!!!
We celebrated in full girl-style with Pinkalicious everything...
Madelyn helped me get ready all day by making cupcakes, and licking her fingers, and licking her fingers, and licking her fingers...
If you weren't here, you're probably rather thankful now. ;)
It was pretty simple. Box cake mix. A container of cherry frosting. A can of pink frosting (who knew if came like this?!?), and a jar of cherries...
On a side note: I think it's time I sew us some matching aprons... this dishcloth didn't really cut it!
Her big cousin Seven arrived with flowers for the birthday girl! =) SO sweet. She said, (big gasp of surprise) "For Madi!"
She's such a girl...
But who can blame them?!? We may (or may not) have started off the day with a cupcake for breakfast...
I mean, you only turn 2 once!
Birthday hats are for everyone! Especially when Seven runs around and insists that everyone wears one!!!
We threw in some train accessories, like this amazing Train Cake made by All Around Cakes, for Michael's sake. He took one long look at it and said, "Is that a train cake? It's missing the connectors between each car..."
Of course he would notice!
And we topped the night off with a brand new BIKE. I haven't gotten anymore pictures yet, but the bike has a seat on the back for Madi's baby to ride along with her! =) Yeah, it's a little too much, I know. Being a girl is rough. And being the only girl on the Lambert side of the family is even more rough... she eats it up though, don't worry!
And just for memory sake...
One week old.
One year old.
It's going by too fast! =(
I guess we'll just have to have another. =)
Happy Birthday, Madelyn!!!
We couldn't love you more!
