Charlie turned two yesterday. It was pretty cute to watch him soak up the day. He kept saying, "I'm so excited!" but I don't really think he knew why. :) I think his favorite gift was a mylar balloon. After dropping Madeline off at preschool, I took him to pick out one. He chose Mickey. And are you aware of this helium shortage? Very weird, but as a result, the ballon cost $6.50.... yeah.... We celebrated Thursday night since Matt would be out of town at a work conference the rest of the weekend. Here is a little peek at our celebration. I'm not sure there is much cuter than a two year old on his birthday.
I tried my hand at cake pops this year. At the beginning of the process, there were almost tears as the cake kept getting swallowed in the melted candy melts, falling off of the sticks and crumbling to pieces. I persevered and made them work, although they're not as easy as Bakerella claims! I'm glad I tried them, but I may try something else next time.
You can find the recipe for the Winnie the Pooh and Hunny Cake Pops HERE.
We got a steal of a deal on a train table and set of Thomas trains from a lady that Matt works with. Charlie slept with Harold the Helicopter and Thomas the train that night.
