A special dinner for Addie

My sweet little Addie turned two last week.  Thanks to Alt and a crazy schedule, I didn't plan much in the way of a party.  I was thinking we might take her to the zoo later this week, but my oldest made it very clear that everyone in this family needs a party on their birthday!  I blame myself for this line of thinking :)

So after attending a friends birthday party on Sunday, Jeremy and I ran out for a few things, and came up with a little party for Ads.

I bought two bundles of flowers at the market and decided to tape them in four rows on the wall behind our table (I was inspired by this photo).

My husband surprised me by pulling this lovely little cake out of the freezer!  He had made it while I was flying home on Saturday.  Seriously, I love that man.  And he's going to be making the cakes from now on!  I decided to stick one of my wooden Hooray toppers in the cake (for good measure, of course).

Luckily, I have a growing stash of beeswax candles from Miette.  I knew they would come in handy someday.  Now I can justify buying a handful every time we visit the store :).

Happy Birthday sweet girl!
