Happy Birthday Esther!

 Esther had her 2nd birthday this week - she's a "big girl" now :)  So much has happened since she was born it seems like at least 2 years ago - and it's hard to imagine there was ever a world without Esther - we didn't know what we were missing!

This picture is actually at an event we were invited too - I didn't know how she'd do with the pony, but she wasn't scared at all...
One of Esther's newest games is taking her doll "babies" with her everywhere - She's quite a good little mother and especially is good at laying them down for naps!
 Esther helped me make her birthday cake - actually, since we have had no lack of sugar lately, we made gingerbread - which I haven't made for a very long time....was a fun treat.

 Look twice - both of the girls are smiling at the same time! Now if only they were dressed up...
 The day Esther was born was quite chilly, her second birthday - farther south - was beautiful!
 When Aaron got home from work we had our own little "party" - we gave her our gift and the ones the Grandmas mailed.

 She figured out that she needed to blow, but couldn't blow hard enough :)
 Even I will concede that whipped cream is better than most frosting!
 Then last night we went up to Aaron's parents and celebrated again - she got this little wheelbarrow (to help Daddy work!) and promptly filled it up with everything she could find laying around.
 Still needed help to get those candles out! This time she got a real cake - with caramel frosting :)
I know that's a lot of pictures, but you only have one second birthday!

What a sweet girl. You are blessed. By the way, welcome to the world of glasses...not so bad is it? I have had them since grade 7. Blessings on your day.

Happy Belated Birthday to our sweet niece!

We both think that your glasses look nice! Amos isn't sure if that's really his sister though, maybe... Mrs. Satchwill. :D
