Happy Birthday Grace!

Today was Grace's birthday. She is officially two!

We had our little Elmo party.

Here's the cupcake I made for her...

I think it turned out pretty well. It would have been better if I had used a bigger jellybean for the nose though.

I dressed Brentley in Elmo to match the theme lol.

We headed to CiCi's Pizza. I know it's nothing fancy, but Grace loves pizza and loves having her food as soon as she gets there. She hates having to sit and wait, so we figured it would be perfect for her. We had an Elmo balloon, but Chris accidentally let it hit a brick pillar as we were walking in, and it popped it :( It was one of those foil balloons, so I couldn't believe it popped, but oh well. Grace didn't seem to notice. She was too busy wanting to go in and eat lol.

Now she's headed to three! At least I have 366 days between now and then lol.


  1. That is awesome. Looks like she had fun. The cupcake looks awesome, and I didn't even notice the jellybean was "small." Eh. With kids you don't have to be fancy. They don't enjoy it as much. I mean, Samantha picked McDonalds for her birthday dinner. lol.

  2. It actually easier than it looks. I just used a fork to make the icing look like fur, then stuck the marshmallows on for eyes, jelly bean for nose, and half an oreo for the mouth :)

  3. I would reccommend a bigg jelly bean though. I think it would look more like Elmo that way. Grace knew what it was supposed to be though. She was saying "Elmo! Elmo!" lol.
