The Birthday Girl

Today was Victoria's 2nd birthday!! I can't believe she is two! I am so happy she is here with us and she will never celebrate another birthday lying alone in her crib!


My dad came down from South Carolina to celebrate with us. He was amazed at how quickly Victoria could grab his pens from his pocket with her one little finger.


I really wanted to get Victoria a special present, but the thought of shopping with the kids just overwhelmed me, so Theresa came to my rescue again and brought memory books for both girls!


If Victoria could talk, I think she would be cursing at me for putting this bow in her hair! I can't believe how strawberry blond her hair is becoming!


Carol modeled the bow as well, pretending to be a bunny. We really know how to throw a party!


Time for cake!


"Oh, why must you torture me with this disgusting chocolate!"




Big surprise as to who liked the cake!


"Wait a minute, this stuff is pretty good!"


Happy Birthday sweet baby!

  13. Oh, my, chocolate ... they are SO MUCH your girls! I have thought before how cool it is that BOTH girls seem to have red hair. At least that's how the pictures have looked to me. And I never thought that they looked like redheads in their RR pictures.
