We've lived in Utah, Nebraska, upper Michigan and now we've settled in Colorado...at least for now! Marley is 10, Isi is 6 and Enzo is 4.

Life is great!

Last post about Marley's 2nd Birthday...

Marley got two really cute outfits from Grandma Nette (Nate's mom). She has worn them already this week and if I had been smart, I would have taken a picture of her with the outfits on and then included them in this post. Wouldn't that have been cute!
I didn't take pictures...but, the next time she wears them I will!
As soon as Marley could see fabric she was saying,
"Ooooo! Cute! Oh! Cute!"
She LOVES these outfits!

Grandma Nette also sent a new Vegetales DVD!!! Josh and the Big Wall.
We had never seen it before...but, we've seen it plenty now!
She also got a really cute pink tutu from Grandma Nette but, she got it early because it was only partially wrapped.
(picture will be in future post, promise!)
Marley loves to draw on paper and we are almost out of scratch paper so...

She got a magnadoodle!

And she loves it!

It was and will be especially nice in church.
I love her lips in this one.
And she got a Sesame Street Farm! We were supposed to give this too her for Christmas but, we forgot. She has seen in the garage a couple of times...ooops!
Now it's hers!
Now for the CAKE!!!
It was a white vanilla cake with vanilla pudding filling. The frosting is a cream cheese frosting I found online. Usually, cream cheese frosting is not good for decorating but I found one that would crust...so it worked.
She couldn't resist...I don't blame her!
Forgot to get candles. Hee hee!
Nathan was in charge of the pyrotechnics.
He did not disappoint.
Cutting he cake.
Mmm...I can't wait to get this cake goodness into my mouth!
Maneuver the fork.
And Marley got to play with daddy and the farm just before bed.
And Aunt Kathy was right she is really thinking,
"I have the best dad in the world. I love to play with my dad!"

We love you all!

Cute! I love how she's closing her eyes when she's licking her frosting finger. Also, when she is maneuvering the fork she sticks her tongue out just like you do. Must be genetics...I'm glad she had such a great birthday.

I'm VERY familiar with those pushed out lips!! Maya does it all the time except when I have the camera out. Go figure!! Miss you!!

Happy Birthday Marley!!!

Can I have some cake?

Alissa said...

You silly little pickle, you silly little peas! You think that walking around the wall will bring it to its knees?? Ah but perhaps, in the hot sun...you are dehydrated???
LOVE Josh and the Big Wall! It's wonderful! Vegetales are the reason why I have fines at the Library and am no longer allowed to check out items from the library until I pay my fine. :(

You did a good job making her birthday special!!

Sounds like a great birthday! Yipee! Thanks for sharing the cake. I promise to bring your container back soon.

Christina said...

I think the cake was gone within 15 minutes of when you came by. It was SO GOOD!

What a precious two year old. I want a little girl that looks just like her. Also, I MUST have the cream cheese frosting recipe you found. I just started the wilton buttercream class and am not a fan of the flavor at all.
