Abby Turns 2!

On May 22nd, our little girl turned 2!  Where did the past two years go?  I feel like I was just planning her 1st birthday party a little bit ago.  This year we kept it low-key and had family over to our (still temporary) humble abode.  It was rainbow-themed so it was quite colorful and Abby had a lot of fun!  Thanks to Nana, Pop Pop, Granma, Chris, Jennifer, and Julie for coming!  And to Grampy and Barb who came the following weekend!


Good morning birthday girl!


I had some fun craft time.


(Non-alcoholic) jello shots, rainbow fruit kabobs (kabab), rainbow lollipops, skittles, peanut M&Ms, fruit salad, rainbow goldfish crackers…

I also made pulled pork in the crock pot.  It was the first time I made it and it was really, really good!  Such a simple thing to make.  Took some pork, root beer, and bbq sauce.  Deeeeeeelish.  Good thing I didn’t try to make rainbow colored pork though.

Abby got some really nice presents from everyone and she had a great time pulling them all out of the guest room and opening them one by one. 

Since it was rainbow-themed, I had decided I wanted to make Abby a rainbow tie-dye cake.  I saw something on Pinterest so I followed that.  Needless to say, it did NOT come out like what I had pinned.  I think it’s because a) I used vanilla cake instead of white, b) I ran out of vegetable oil and had to substitute with some corn oil, and c) I just wasn’t as artsy when dealing with the icing.  The colors were much more muted compared to what I went off of.  Oh well, it was still fun!



You might think, “That’s pretty cool, not too bad!”  Yeah, I won’t share the picture where I got the idea.  😉


Again, I won’t show you the inspirational picture.  This came out looking quite pastel. 


2 years!  Little big girl!
