Anyway. This year's birthday party was so much fun. Last year they were cute, but this year they were running all over, playing with the other kids. Peanut was doing his happy shimmy, it was just so much fun to sit and watch them. Although I didn't really get to sit....
My friend Erica showed up a little early so she could help me set up and brought her two girls, T & K with her. They were so excited for the bambinos to show up that K yelled, "Surprise!" causing Bug to do a dead stop in the doorway. For a while after, Bug was uninterested in playing with the other kids, choosing instead to hang out with the adults, namely Daddy.
Finally, after they'd been eyeing presents for awhile, we let them open them.
After being completely spoiled by our friends and family, we sang Happy Birthday and cut the cake my sister made. It was a yummy white cake with berries and a cream filling between the two layers.
Most of the kids weren't terribly interested in cake so they ran around some more while the adults ate.
Is it bad that I've already started thinking of ideas for their 3rd birthday? Although next year we ware not getting the room at the church again. At just after 5pm when we were almost but not quite finished cleaning up, some people barged into the room to watch football even though we'd paid for the room until 6pm. And, with such a large room, the guest list gets too out of control and it's hard to actually visit with people.
