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!
