Bailey's Birthday

Bailey turned two on March 7th. Sometimes I think that she is 2 going on 16. There is a lot of personality in that little body of hers. We had a fun night with homemade pizza for dinner and chocolate cake for dessert. If you look closely at this picture, you can see that the candles are already blown out. Brett likes to video us singing and I like to have a still picture of the kids blowing, so we compromise and our kids get to act out blowing the candles after they have already blown them out. I know, I know, silly parents.Grandpa Bruschke was able to join us for the festivities.
If you wonder why the focus is off on these pictures it is because Spencer was our photographer. He did get good pictures of the gifts that Bailey got, but for the most part focused on them and not the people in the pictures. Bailey received the first sand toys that our family has ever owned. I know that is sad, especially since Spencer if four, but we haven't really lived where we could use them until we moved back here, so now we are stocking up.
Bailey got a cute little toaster and microwave from Grandma and Grandpa to go with the kitchen that she got for Christmas. . .
. . .and new bedding for hers (and Natalie's) bed.
Bailey shares her birthday with her cousin Taylor. They were born down the hall for each other, just 58 minutes apart, so of course they had to celebrate together. Here is a picture of them opening a gift. . .
. . .and a picture of what they got. They really are the best of friends. Whenever we get together they run up to each other and give big hugs.
And finally a picture of their shared birthday cake, Strawberry Shortcake. Daniel couldn't help but be part of the fun.
