Happy Birthday, Joseph!!

Here he is, our big boy, now 2 years old! We had a birthday party at lunchtime today. (Can you believe I am already posting about it?)
A close up of his dinosaur cake, made by yours truly(I checked the pan out from our library, how cool is that!):
Yum, yum, eat 'em up!

I think he likes it!

Joseph is growing up fast. I remember the difficulty we had when he was born.
Now he is quite the talker. In the last few days, we would ask him how old are you going to be, Joseph? He would think hard and work his little fingers so that there were two standing up, and then grin and say, "Be two!"

He loves to go outside and "mow" the grass.

He loves to help Daddy in the garden:

And he really loves Daddy's lawnmower. He is happy as a clam to go for a ride anytime!

Happy Birthday, Joseph! My littlest turned 2 just a few weeks ago.

Oh, my! That is a lovely cake. My attempts at decorating cakes fail every time; they look like the work of a 5-year-old. A number of years ago, when my eldest turned seven, she asked if she could decorate her own cake. It turned into a new family tradition: the birthday kid gets to decorate the cake. Takes the stress off of me!

But, yours is lovely.

Thank you! I am getting better at cakes, I think. Just don't look too closely at them. :) I got the frosting consistency right this time, but I had trouble with bursting decorating bags.

That is a good idea to let the birthday kid decorate the cake. I'll have to remember that.
