ivy turns two!


It does NOT seem like a whole year has gone by since I drove up to Toronto for Ivy's 1st birthday (complete with an adorable cakesmash!), but here I am, posting photos from the pink and purple Minnie Mouse birthday party we had this weekend. 

I can't believe Ivy is two!

As an auntie...I'm totally allowed to say that she is the prettiest girl in the world. Here are some of my favourite photos from the party :)



I think she likes it :)


These are the sugar cookies I made for Ivy's party...

Except I used a weird recipe for the cookies and some of the ears started falling off when I stacked them to bring them to my parents' house. 

I literally bawled my eyes out because I completely ruined them. I just wanted everything to be perfect for her special day!! I threw a little tantrum in my front hall, and Beans calmed me down and told me to bring them anyway.

Everyone still ate them, and at least I had taken a photo before they became earless :)

I hope Ivy forgives me.  








I love these two photos of Ivy showing Beans her My Little Ponies and her cellphone (a calculator, obviously). 


There was also an impromptu disco party in the living room...


And plenty of gift opening!!! She is the best little gift receiver, with big thank-yous, hugs, and an undivided attention for what she's just opened up :)


Her gift from Auntie Laura and Uncle Beans! A pony in a purse -- does it get any better than that, ladies?



Ivy's big gift from Nana and Grandpa!!! She was completely obsessed with this kitchen all afternoon :)


Miss Ivy: Auntie Laura can't wait to help you with your first batch of sugar cookies one day :)


Three things:

1. I just love how PINK this blog post is. 

2. I love you, little girl. Auntie Laura and Uncle Beans are so proud of you, and how smart you are. You amaze us every time we see you!!!

3. Try not to grow up too fast, okay?
