(The third trimester, terrible twos, a cold, and the home renovation push before the winter have me wiped these days, but I’ll be back with a report on the house progress next week.)
We did a letter P-themed birthday party for PG and a bunch of her two-year old friends. It involved several of PG’s favorite things: the pool, face paint, and puzzles, as well as pizza and pineapple-flower topped cupcakes. She actually had friends here from four in the afternoon the day before, so she had a fun-packed two days. We tried to keep the presents from getting out of hand by prohibiting presents from party-goers, but a couple people couldn’t resist, and PG’s aunts, uncles, and grandparents loaded her up. These are not the greatest of pictures, but they do show a glimpse of our day:
Hummingbird Cupcakes with Pineapple flowers. (recipe from Annie’s Eats)
The girls choosing which designs they wanted on their faces.
Another guest modeling the face paint.
PG refused to smile for any pictures from this point on.
PG with some of her friends from church. (PG wanted to stay in her swimsuit after getting out of the pool.)
Thanks to all those who contributed to our sweet girl’s special day!
